Fans who have been anxiously awaited the highly anticipated reboot of the Mirror’s Edge franchise, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, will have to wait a little longer. Electronic Arts and DICE have confirmed that the game’s release has been pushed back for two months. The game’s release date has been moved from February 23, 2016 to May 24, 2016. The announcement was made by Sara Jansson in a letter to the fans, which you can read in full below.
The good news to take away from this is that the development team will have more time to polish and smooth out any potential bugs for the game. Granted, a two month delay is not a guarantee all that will be worked out, but it is always better that a big game like this takes all the necessary time it needs so the final product will be as polished as possible.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is now due out for a May 24, 2016 release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
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. 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.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has received an incredible response from fans around the world over the past months. You’ve been eager to see the return of Faith and the unique style and gameplay that only Mirror’s Edge can create. Witnessing your positive reactions has been amazing motivation for me and the rest of our passionate team at DICE.
Thank you again for your patience and support. Keep the Faith.
