In a new blog post today, Senior Producer Sara Jansson confirmed the existence of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and announced that we’ll be hearing more about the game at EA’s E3 2015 press conference on Monday, June 15 at 1pm PT/4pm ET.

Jansson then discussed Catalyst, stating that “this is not a sequel, this is not Mirror’s Edge 2:”

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.

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.

No platforms were mentioned for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, but in EA’s recent financial report, we learned it’s releasing in Q1 2016 on consoles and PC.
