Dice and EA have officially revealed the name of the upcoming Mirror’s Edge reboot, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. Senior Producer Sara Jansson updated the official Mirror’s Edge website to reflect the announcement.
“Mirror’s Edge has always had a special place in the hearts of all of us at DICE. 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.”
Jensen also confirmed that we will see more of the game at E3 2015. It was exactly two years ago at E3 2013 that EA announced the unnamed Mirror’s Edge game, and in one week we’ll finally get our first real look at it. EA will hold their press conference Monday June 15 at 1pm PT.
