It's hard to believe that it's been nearly eight years since Electronic Arts unveiled the original Mirror's Edge, a first-person parkour action game that saw players running and jumping from rooftop to rooftop in a seemingly Utopian city skyline. The game wasn't a big seller, but it earned a lot of recognition for doing something different for the genre and not relying on shooting in a shooter-heavy market.

Since its release in fall 2008, fans have clamored for a Mirror's Edge sequel from EA and developer DICE (the makers of the Battlefield series and upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront) and it's finally inching closer. Announced at EA's E3 2013 press conference, a followup is indeed on the way for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and next week Electronic Arts will finally have a full unveiling of Mirror's Edge 2.

Except, it won't be titled that, nor will it be a sequel. Early reports had the new Mirror's Edge pegged as a prequel, fleshing out the origina story of the game's protagonist, Faith, but it was labeled a reboot of sorts "for the next generation" by the publisher, a fresh start. We now know that it's actually going to be titled Mirror's Edge Catalyst.
