Not Much Faith For Mirror's Edge 2

I have unfortunate news for fans of pristine primary-colored cityscape free-running simulators: EA has moved everyone involved in working on MIrror's Edge 2 to other projects and the game is currently "stalled". Unfortunately, "stalled" often translates to "canceled", and this leaves me a sad panda chewing on my bamboo of sorrow. Mirror's Edge was a game that I enjoyed immensely, and the rough spots in its design - such as the story, the trickiness of the controls, the horrible motion controls for the PS3 - were things that could be easily polished to make the sequel a superior product.

The sequel, presumably subtitled "A Leap of Faith", was in development and had even been shown internally at EA, according to DICE's Patrick Soderlund. Additionally, the game appeared on DICE's CV in December 2009 and in an interview with Kotaku, EA boss John Riccitiello said that it was a game that deserved to come back. So this was supposed to be a thing.

The silver lining is that the official word is that the game is stalled; if it was truly canceled then they would've said as much and that would be the end of it. Still, games put in limbo tend to not survive long, Duke Nukem Forever aside, so I'm not letting my hopes get too high, but if the team gets back together and production resumes, you can bet that I'll be all over that and let y'all know.
