Mirror’s Edge Writer Rhianna Pratchett Not Coming Back for Sequel


That we’re getting a sequel to Mirror’s Edge (one of the underappreciated gems of 2008) was one of the greatest E3 announcements of all time. Of. All. Time. Today, that news became a smidgen less exciting as we learned the original game’s writer, Rhianna Pratchett, would not be returning for Mirror’s Edge 2.

Pratchett, writer of Tomb Raider and Heavenly Sword, developed the story for the first Mirror’s Edge. Though it was never really discussed, fans of the first had hoped to see Pratchett return for the sequel. Unfortunately, that just won’t be the case, as Pratchett wrote on her Twitter.

Since there’s an entirely new team supposedly developing Mirror’s Edge 2, it’s not all that surprising to learn Pratchett won’t be back. Factor in the early word that this sequel will be akin to a reboot of the franchise, and the picture becomes even clearer. For what it’s worth, Pratchett did write a six-issue mini-series which acted as a prequel to the original. It’s still available in both trade and digitally through DC Comics if you’re interested getting a more in-depth look at Faith and her backstory.

Quite frankly, even all these months later, we’re still in shock a Mirror’s Edge sequel is going to happen. Though we still don’t know when to expect DICE’s next entry, we hope EA won’t keep us waiting to long.
