[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, an Electronic Arts representative issued a statement to GameSpot on the matter.

"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," the representative said.

The original story follows below

Amazon's German arm has posted a product listing (via NeoGAF) for Mirror's Edge 2, suggesting a sequel to DICE's 2008's first-person free-running game may soon be announced.

The listing indicates Mirror's Edge 2 will be available for the Xbox 360, though no other details are available.

An EA representative was not immediately available to comment.

A year after the launch of the original Mirror's Edge in 2008, EA said that the project was being honed by a small team at DICE. Two years later, production on the game was "stalled" after the company admitted sales of the original were lower than expected.

Most recently, a Mirror's Edge easter egg was found in Battlefield 3 DLC, showing series protagonist Faith's running shoes and audio of her panting.

They've teased Mirror's Edge 2 more times than I can count but it does put a smile on my face when I read about it.  Make it happen!

Mirror's Edge was awesome, I'd love to see a second one.

And I really liked the art style. Imagine how awesome it would look on the new systems with the BF4 engine(if they used that). :D

Audio of her panting?! Erm... I suspect that could have been worded better.

Open world free running, please. I drool on myself at the thought of multiple routes to a finishing point. Especially, and I rarely say this about any game, in a multiplayer context.

Oh, and don't even think of adding a third person perspective. Even if only as an option. No. The POV is what made this rare. Really felt the implications of failing combined with the necessity of concentration.

Just the other week I dusted of my copy of Mirrors edge and played it again, I think it's one of those rare games that gets better with age. So I seriously hope this will soon be announced as official.

Was also nice to play a game from a first person perspective that didn't focus on shooting. Although I hope they do make the combat system better if this game is in the pipeline.

I'm actually dying to hear about Prey 2. The  pre-order is still sitting up on the Amazon and Game website for a 2013 release. It's just torture now, as is Star Wars 1313. :(

This isn't a way to let us know that xbox one titles will cost 99.99 euros? 

I Hope this does get released though, really did enjoy the first one!

I like how EA neither confirms nor denies the rumor that Mirrors Edge 2 is in development.  It's a day one purchase for me if it turns out to be true, but I'm not holding my breath.

Germany don't like us English speaking countries! Shame on them for releasing something that EA hasn't announced yet. Now der Germans want me to say 'I hope this game doesn't get released!' like a troll, Germany is the biggest troll baiters on the internet, with their internet laws of staying anonymous and greed in business of gathering up attention and I really do hope the German division of Amazon get in trouble for making this listing!!

"We have nothing to announce at this time" They are not denying. Possible E3 reveal.

I really hope so. I loved the first Mirrors Edge, the soundtrack, unique gameplay and that calming sense tranquility when playing it. One series I'd love to see continue!

Mirrors Edge was a great game and ive been hoping for another game in the series, just hope it doesn't come out only on xbox one and has a longer story. I think most people who didn't like it are just brats that have a.d.d and couldn't accept a game where you cant shoot people every 10 seconds. Go play some COD if you want that crap

Mirror's Edge would have been great if the whole game was just the time-trial mode. The story mode was awful.

False alarm, continue hating EA.

A Mirror's Edge game on an engine that makes paint chips and clouds of dust fly into your eyes as the police shoot the crap out of the wall you are trying to run/jump off. Mmmmm tasty :)

Yeah... what a joke... they put that on ice because 1.5 millions copies sold is not enough for EA... not enough for money hungry EA.

i can not be happier if EA and DICE finally put some attention to Mirror's Edge. It's a unique experience and definitely one of the best in this gen. As much as i want to see Faith in next gen graphics powered with Frostbite 3.0, i wish it will be cross gen.

maybe this is a xbox one exclusive since EA has a partnership to be talked about at E3

@devild0ogwhite The fact that they're not denying it is a good sign. Even if it is rubbish right now, they obviously have plans for the name.

Id still buy it if were a Kinect game.  Fat people would also lose some weight.

@Uhlextric Please give us a true sequel. Not a COD infused Mirror's Edge. If they don't stay true the original I won't be willing to play it.

@ewjiml Hmmmm Parkour in my living room. I see death and destruction lying in my wake.
