Our Take
The fact that Mirror’s Edge is on the calendar is good news. This also hints that EA was happy with Garden Warfare’s performance and might be coming back for seconds. Notably missing is the next Battlefield game, which I assume won’t arrive any earlier than fall 2016 with Battlefront nicely filling that hole this fall.
