As of right now, it is not known when Mirror’s Edge 2 will be released. The main character, Faith, will have a “broader move set” and some new abilities, such as being able to round corners while wall-running by grabbing onto pipes. She’ll be able to make expanded use of her environment to take down enemies by leaping off walls and ledges to take them out in one blow.
