Mirror's Edge Summary
A total of $10.5 million has been carved up between five different charities in the wake of the Humble Bundle sale that included some of EA's biggest PC games, of which they kept none of the revenue.
Peter Moore tweeted he's "so proud of Team EA" for raising the $10.5m from the charity campaign, with $1.65m of that going to the American Cancer Society.
Tomb Raider and Mirror's Edge scribe Rhianna Pratchett has said her father, Discworld series author Terry Pratchett, has been approached "now and again" for more Discworld adventures but he's "waiting to be impressed".
No development studio has come in and wowed him yet, as Rhianna's father is a "gamer himself so he has an idea what he'd like to see," she said; unsure if she'd take over.

building scrambler parkour veteran Neil Cointet runs, leaps and climbs dressed as Faith from DICE's Mirror's Edge. It's all recorded from a first-person perspective just like in the game.
Parkour specialists Ampisound are "massive fans" of Mirror's Edge and wanted a tribute to the DICE IP. They "got some plans for a second one" if this one does well.
The Humble Origin Bundle continues to raise gobs of cash for charity, as sales have topped $9M and are headed to $10M. The Bundle includes Dead Space, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Mirror's Edge, Dead Space 3, Medal of Honor, and Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, with Battlefield 3, The Sims 3 with two Starter Pack add-ons, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising and Populous for donating more than the average price (currently just under $5 USD.)
Mirror's Edge 2 was announced at E3 2013, to the joy of many videogame fans. DICE exec producer Patrick Bach revealed in an interview at GamesCom 2013 that DICE was the one who was holding back the sequel, not Electronic Arts.
