Mirror’s Edge 2 as Xbox One exclusive fears

We are just a few weeks away from the start of E3 2013 and we can’t wait to see what new games are announced on stage. Mirror’s Edge 2 has been a long request from fans who loved the first game and this week, we’ve heard rumors that it could be one of the games planned during EA’s press conference.

It’s no secret that Mirror’s Edge is still considered to be one of the best multi-platform games to release on current-generation hardware. Developers DICE have always maintained that they don’t want to be known as just the Battlefield developers, so a sequel is bound to happen sooner or later due to its massive following.

We’ve now learned that a 2013 release for the game may not be so farfetched any more. The German portion of Amazon had initially leaked a listing for Mirror’s Edge 2 – but on the Xbox 360 platform only. This listing has since been removed, but not until the guys over at AllGamesBeta managed to grab this screenshot showing the evidence.

Considering that the listing has been removed from Amazon completely, we would assume that this could be an intended announcement for E3 2013. Along with Xbox 360 though, we would also expect the game to come to Microsoft’s Xbox One console as well. One potential fear though is whether Mirror’s Edge 2 will end up as an Xbox exclusive or not.

Microsoft has already signed an exclusive agreement with EA Sports, so imagine if they have managed to persuade EA to take Mirror’s Edge 2 away from multi-platform as well? Or if not, release it as a multiplatform game but with substantial content to the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

It’s early days yet of course, but give us your initial reaction to the Mirror’s Edge 2 rumors. Do you believe that EA would make Mirror’s Edge 2 exclusive to one platform, or is it completely out of the question?

    So if it was an Ps4 exclusive youd be all singing praises?

    • ROMEO

      yes, because the xbox one is awful.

    Mirror’s Edge wasn’t a huge seller. If Microsoft got it as an exclusive it could be the same as Nintendo getting Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive : the sequel wouldn’t exist at all without a big shot company paying for an exclusive sequel.
