EA Teases Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst Ahead of E3

The next Mirror’s Edge will not be a sequel, which is why it has not been titled Mirror’s Edge 2. It’s official title has been confirmed to be Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. Get hyped!

EA has been teasing the return of Mirror’s Edge for two years now. The reboot was first announced back at E3 2013. Then, last year at E3 2014, it reemerged again, but still only in concept art and prototype footage. That will be changing this year.

Before the latest trailer is shown and more gameplay details are revealed during EA’s E3 2015 press conference on Monday, June 15 at 1:00 PM PDT, DICE Senior Producer Sara Jansson has written the following letter introducing gamers to Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst:

Hello everyone,

Two years ago we revealed that we were making a new Mirror’s Edge™. Last year, we gave you a behind the scenes look into some of the early progress we had made. And though we haven’t said much else in all that time, we have been listening. Thank you for your incredible passion and your patience. I’m excited to tell you that it’s paid off — by this time next week, you will have finally seen more of the game at E3.

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.

So on behalf on the entire team here at DICE, we can’t wait to show you what we have been pouring our heart and soul into. We can’t wait to introduce you to Mirror’s Edge™ Catalyst.

Senior Producer, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst
