Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has been delayed, having previously been due to release on February 25, 2016, EA has announced on its website.
The game will now release on May 24, 2016 so that the developers can ensure that the will be as ” entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be.”
“Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Achieving that vision and delivering the best possible experience is equally inspiring and challenging. And it takes time,” said producer Sara Jansson. “We set out to create a vast city to explore, full of stunning vistas, majestic skyscrapers, and mysterious tunnels. We’re building the most immersive action-adventure game with fluid movement and combat in first person. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will be an all-new playground with a deeper and more engaging story – and we want to accomplish all these goals to the highest quality possible.”
“So we’ve made the decision to bring Mirror’s Edge to the world starting May 24, 2016. We will use these few extra months to make sure that when you step into the massive City of Glass and experience the rise of Faith, it’s as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be.”
If you can’t wait until May 2016 for some more Mirror’s Edge action, there are rumours that the original Mirror’s Edge will be heading to the Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Keep an eye out on November 12 to see if it makes the cut. If not, there are plenty of other games releasing between now and May to keep you busy.
