You guys! You guys! Now, I don’t want everyone getting too excited, but in case you haven’t inferred from the very, very obvious headline, the German branch of Amazon.com has listed Mirror’s Edge 2 for pre-order. Did you hear that? That was the sound of a bajillion fans squeeing in unison.
In the past, Germany’s Amazon has been pretty good at outing games before they’re announced. They were responsible for revealing that Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Premium Edition a few days before Bethesda planned supposed to do the same. They’ve also just outed a possible PC version of GTA V, but that one is still up for debate.
Naturally, EA’s Department of Buzzkilling has responded to the listing with the following statement: “We appreciate fan enthusiasm for Mirror’s Edge, especially fans throughout the retail channel. This is not official EA material. We have nothing to announce at this time.” Yeah, whatever Mr. Buzzkillington; just shut up. E3 is right around the corner and what with all this new console hardware flying around, it just seems about the right time for EA to unveil Mirror’s Edge 2 and simultaneously “win” E3 in the process.
