DICE 'doesn't just want to build Battlefield,' says studio general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson.
There remains hope for a future return to the Mirror's Edge franchise despite the growing importance of the Battlefield franchise for DICE and EA, DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson has told VideoGamer.com.
Asked if any DICE developed Mirror's Edge title was dead given that Battlefield has become so huge, Troedsson said: "I would actually say it's the other way around. DICE was founded on the success of Battlefield, but it's part of our DNA, part of our strategy moving forward as a studio, that we don't just want to build Battlefield.
"It's not because we want to come up with new ideas, but we want to challenge ourselves as game developers to try and build new things, deliver new ideas and test some things. Some of these concepts might never see the light of day. They might just end up inside the DICE vault somewhere, and maybe we learn something that we bring into one of the bigger titles, or one might actually become a new game that we launch. We're keeping a lot of options open for the future."
However, Troedsson was unable to confirm the development of any other titles, stating: "I would say that I can't confirm that we are working on any other games."
In the same interview, Troedsson told VideoGamer.com that Xbox 360 gamers have nothing to worry about and that the 360 version is going to look really, really good.
