As reported, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst had trademarks and a domain registered, now the official site for the new title is live at www.mirrorsedge.com although at the time of writing www.mirrorsedgecatalyst.com doesn’t redirect to the new site.
In it, Senior Producer, Sara Jansson confirms the existence of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst but says it isn’t a sequel and isn’t 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.
Although, one section of the announcement comes as a worry
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.
This kind of talk usually translates on the Internet to “dumbed down”, so it is now on DICE to prove that isn’t the case and that Catalyst is a true successor to Mirror’s Edge when they show Mirror’s Edge Catalyst at E3 next week.
