EA has confirmed that Mirror's Edge will see a follow-up, despite the publisher seeking to pare back its operations in the face of disappointing Christmas sales and the global economic instability.
"While we saw significant improvement in the overall quality of our key products this year, we are disappointed that our holiday slate is not meeting our sales expectations," said EA CEO John Riccitiello in an investor call picked up by gamesindustry.biz. "Given this performance and the uncertain economic environment, we are taking steps to reduce our cost structure and improve the profitability of our business."
However, despite slow sales the warm critical reception afforded to Mirror's Edge will ensure a sequel. "Many times with a new intellectual property, the first edition doesn't generate the units that subsequent editions could generate," Riccitiello continued, "Mirror's Edge is one that was very strongly reviewed, that one's going to go forward. We're probably going to look into some issues around the design to make sure strong IP is married with strong business."
