As suspected, the new Mirror's Edge game currently in development at Battlefield developer DICE has now been given the name Mirror's Edge: Catalyst. It was first suggested that this would be the game's name following teases on social media and a listing on a European intellectual property site earlier this week.
She also talked about how Catalyst will build upon the foundation of the 2008 original, which she said didn't go as far as it could have.
"The first game had a lot of promise," Jansson 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."
Jansson went on to say that the team at DICE has spent a good amount of time "re-evaluating every aspect" of the original so as to ensure the follow-up is not perceived as a simple sequel.
"This is not a sequel, this is not Mirror's Edge 2," she said. "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."
Catalyst is scheduled to release during EA's fourth fiscal quarter, which translates to the period running January 1-March 31, 2016. It's due out for console and PC, though a full list of platforms has not been announced.
In addition to Catalyst, DICE is working on Star Wars: Battlefront, which will launch across console and PC in November.
