Mirror's Edge 2 To Release In Early 2016

EA Reveal 2016 Release For The Much-Anticipated Prequel

EA have released its quarterly earnings report for the 2015 fiscal year, and revealed a 2016 release window for Mirror's Edge 2 in the process.

The fourth quarter of the 2015 fiscal year ranges from January 1st to March 31st, so you can expect to see the highly-anticipated prequel anywhere in that time frame. However history would suggest February onward, as January isn't a month known for AAA releases.

Mirror's Edge 2 was revealed at E3 2013, almost 5 years after the release of the original. Mirror's Edge didn't sell astronomically well, in spite of resounding critical praise, but amassed a cult following regardless.

Mirror's Edge 2 sees the return of protagonist, Faith, in what will be prequel story. As well as continue and expand upon the series' parkour gameplay, as seen in the trailer below.

    I cannot wait for this trailer - I'm just so curious! I didn't play Mirror's Edge, but I've always loved the concept of a first-person parkour game.

    Oh it's great! You really should check it out! Doesn't matter on what (but if you are playing on PC, you need a Nvidia card because of enforced PhysX).

    Welp, that's an issue then - my rig is a no-Nvidia zone :P

    Any Xbox 360s or PS3?

    Sadly no, I tend to be a budget PC gamer through and through, so no consoles for me.

    That's a damn shame! Well... it might work on AMD GPUs now... I have no idea... haven't played it in a while.
