Mirror’s Edge writer Rhianna Pratchett will not pen script for the game’s upcoming sequel, Mirror’s Edge 2.
Speaking to fans on Twitter, Pratchett said, “It's really lovely that people care enough to ask whether I'm involved with Mirror’s Edge 2, but I'm not & wasn't asked.”
“Let's face it ME1's story didn't review that great (for many reasons). So I consider myself a casualty of that development process.”
When asked if she was happy with the story in Mirror’s Edge, Pratchett said no, and added, “The script got hacked up at the 11th hour due to a decision to remove all of Faith's level dialogue.”
“Too much of the game had been designed before they got me in, which made what we could do more limited.”
Mirror’s Edge 2 was announced at E3 2013. EA DICE is developing the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It will run on the Frostbite 3 engine.
A release date was not given, with EA instead saying the game will launch "when it's ready".
The original Mirror's Edge was received to critical acclaim in 2008, but did not meet sales expectations.
