As E3 approaches, DICE and Electronic Arts have revealed exciting new information about the upcoming Mirror's Edge
game. While the initial naming was confusing, the assumed Mirror's Edge 2
will now release as Mirror's Edge Catalyst
. The change in name is significant, as DICE is looking to identify Catalyst
as a complete re-working of the IP, rather than simply a sequel.
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.
We can expect to see more in Los Angeles next week, hopefully including a release date!
