Senior producer Owen O'Brien has told AusGamers that their first-person run-athon will be split into three. He did say though that it might not end with lead star Faith.
They're confident the world of Mirror's Edge could quite happily "tell someone else's story," though that's far into the future right now; a level editor to appear in a sequel also.
"The story we're telling at the moment is kind of a trilogy, a three-story arc," O'Brien spilled to . "For these first couple games, it's all about Faith. It's all about her experience in the world."
"I think there's a lot of scope to take the story in different directions, or maybe tell someone else's story," he continued. "I think the world we've created, the city and the culture and the environment, is almost as interesting or more interesting than any one individual story."
Given that Mirror's Edge is essentially Parkour on steroids a level editor to let the community create their own environments would be hugely popular most likely. It's "something we're probably going to look out for the sequel."
"If we do it, we want to make the editor as easy to use and intuitive as the game is."
Mirror's Edge is being released on Xbox 360 and PS3 this November 11th, and on PC this winter.
