In what’s either supposed to be satire, a happy accident, or a direct statement about the people controlling the purse strings, the bad guy in DICE and EA’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is none other than Andrew Wilson, the CEO of EA himself. Twitter user imaphyperlover pointed that out himself during the EA conference yesterday after the villain, Gabriel Kruger was revealed.

In unrelated news, DICE will be closing after Mirror’s Edge Catalyst releases on February 23 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. This would be more tragic if it also wasn’t really hilarious. Guess it just goes to show that you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. Even if that hand dresses really well.
