Today EA and DICE offered the smallest glimpse of Mirror’s Edge 2 at last year’s E3. This year, DICE is promising a grander look at the game, while also revealing the game’s new title. The game will be known as Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
“Mirror’s Edge has always had a special place in the hearts of all of us at DICE,” senior producer Sara Jansson said on the Mirror’s Edge website. “The first game had a lot of promise. It was unlike anything else in terms of the gameplay and style — it had a unique soul. But as much as we loved that game, we knew it could be more. So that’s what we have set out to do as we introduce Mirror’s Edge to a new generation. “The team has spent a lot of time re-evaluating every aspect of the game and making it a new experience. This is not a sequel, this is not Mirror’s Edge 2. We have landed on a vision that honors the first game — pushing the boundaries of first person movement and diving deeper into the story behind our heroine Faith — but also brings a lot of great new, interesting gameplay and features to the experience for our players.”
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was also confirmed for an E3 2015 appearance in that same blog post. EA has previously indicated a Q1 2016 release for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Look for more information to come during EA’s press conference this coming Monday.
