A couple days ago, we heard via social media that the new Mirror's Edge project is actually called "Catalyst."
As it turns out, that was true. Developer DICE has confirmed as much at the new game's website , and they've also clarified an important point: Mirror's Edge: Catalyst is not a sequel.
The game's senior producer, Sara Jansson, says the game builds on the foundation of the 2008 title:
"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."
Jansson added that this is not "Mirror's Edge 2" and while this new game "honors the first game" the designers will introduce plenty of new and interesting gameplay features. Well, guess that means it's another open-world/sandbox action game with some free-running elements. 'sigh'
Catalyst is supposed to release during EA's fourth fiscal quarter, which puts it somewhere between January and March of 2016. And yes, they're showing it off at E3 so stay tuned!
