While the original Mirror’s Edge became something of a cult classic when it launched back in 2008, the recent reboot of the game called Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was not as warmly received. However, despite the less amount of enthusiasm for the new take on the game EA claims they’re happy with the results.
EA global publishing head Laura Miele recently spoke with GamesIndustry, which lead to some conversation about the new Mirror’s Edge being brought up. She said that the game is “definitely meeting our expectations… We are pretty happy to bring this character and this world to market. It’s a big open world game, so we made a lot of evolution from the original experience and we’re very proud of that.”
She goes on to say that “I also think that Mirror’s Edge as a game IP – we talked earlier about the EA Originals, about having creative content, having a first person action game, having Faith and her story and character as a mix in the industry, is important for us. I think it’s important for EA to continue to do all games, big and small, and I’m really proud that we stayed committed to bringing that game to market.”
We weren’t too crazy about Mirror’s Edge Catalyst when it launched recently, saying that the game “rarely, if ever, makes as memorable an impression as its predecessor did.” You can check out the full review by clicking right here.
