In reaction to recent comments
made by EA VP Patrick Soderlund about DICE not becoming just a "Battlefield Factory", outspoken ex-EA employee Ben Cousins (former GM of EA Easy, not the footballer) has stirred some emotions by claiming the Swedish studio has a sequel to Mirror's Edge on the boil (thanks VG247
In a Twitter post
, Cousins wrote "It is general knowledge in the Stockholm dev scene that Mirror's Edge 2 is in production at DICE".

, Tweeting "Never trust a man who badmouths and talks down all his ex-employers... but still attempts to gain credibility by association #nohire".
The original Mirror's Edge was released in 2008 to mixed acclaim, as a uniquely stylised first person free-running game. DICE is only currently confirmed to be working on the upcoming Battlefield 4, and supprting Frostbite Engine tech across a growing number of other EA-subsidiary studios.
