‘Mirror’s Edge’ “Sequel” Gets a Title, Also it is Not a Sequel

It’s been two years since we’ve been teased on the Mirror’s Edge follow-up game. Finally we get some new information about it, which was revealed on the official Mirror’s Edge website.

The game will be titled Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, as revealed by the game’s senior producer Sara Jansson. She also states that the game will not be a sequel, and from the sounds of the official statement (and the game’s title) it MIGHT be a prequel or maybe even a reboot.

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.  

What worries me about these developments though, is that by the sounds of it, the people at DICE (the developers of this game, famous for the Battlefield series) MIGHT be making changes to the formula that made the first game great:

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.

Anyway, we’ll be hearing more about the game during E3, which is happening next week.  Here’s hoping DICE keeps the spirit of the game intact, and that they deliver a great game that fans of Mirror’s Edge can enjoy as much as the first game.
