Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is Official, Revealed by EA


After being referred as “Mirror’s Edge 2” for a while, it looks like the sequel to Mirror’s Edge will be called Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. The title was officially revealed on Twitter earlier today:

Prior to the official announcement, IGN noted that EA had filed for a trademark for “Mirror’s Edge Catalyst” and registered a domain with it.

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,” a senior DICE spokesperson said. “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 spokesperson goes on to explain that Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is not a sequel:

“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.”

With this, there is a possibility that Mirror’s Edge: Cataylst could be a reboot or an add-on to the original, as opposed to being a direct sequel. No other details were given by DICE or EA about the new title.

More details will surely unveil during Electronic Arts’ conference at E3 next week. The game itself is slated for release in 2016.
