Battlefield: Bad Company 3 and Mirror’s Edge 2 have been spotted on various profile pages at professional networking site LinkedIn (tracked down by GamerZines), indicating DICE is possibly at work on sequels to its shooter and free-running franchises.

The Bad Company 3 reference comes from a user who said he “provided video game prototype, design, and demo feedback on various AAA titles including Battlefield: Bad Company 3, Dead Space 2, Devil May Cry 5, and other unannounced titles” between 2009 and 2011.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 shipped during March 2010, and to date, no mention has been made of a follow-up. A sequel to that title would not come as much surprise, as it won warm reviews upon launch, and sold nearly six million copies. A spin-off to the core Battlefield franchise, the Bad Company series launched in 2008 with the well-received original.

As for Mirror’s Edge 2, the profile page of an ex-EA software engineer says he worked on that game between July and August 2009, creating the “wandering of crowd system within the Unreal 3 Engine.” Yet another former EA employee’s page says he built “new gadget and interactive features” for Mirror’s Edge 2, as well as leaderboards and a mini-game inside the Mirror’s Edge story.

A sequel to Mirror’s Edge has not been formally announced, but in June 2009, EA Games Europe vice president Patrick Soderlund confirmed a follow-up was in the works. At the time, he said, “You will see another Mirror’s Edge for sure. It’s just a matter of when that time is and what we do with it. We have a small team on it, and I’m excited about what we do.”

An EA representative told GameSpot, “We do not comment on rumors or speculation.”
