After a long wait finally we are going to see and hear more about the long anticipated sequel to Mirror's Edge, it has been two years since EA Games announced the sequel to Mirror's Edge and in that time not much was shown or known about the new game, but finally at E3 this year the curtain shall be pulled back and a game properly revealed. While a vast majority of the announcements will be made at E3, Dice has posted a letter from the development team on the franchises official website. Within this the games official title as well as release date has been announced, the game will now be titled Mirror's Edge Catalyst, and will arrive on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC next year in the first quarter of the year which is already proving to have some pretty big releases.
Here is the note given by Sarah Jansson the senior producer of 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
It is worth noting that within the letter they never mention the game as a sequel, so it is interesting to think what exactly the game is, with E3 literally just around the corner we should now more soon.
