EA DICE has delayed the release of Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst to June 7th in North America and June 9th in Europe. This is the second delay for the game after originally being announced for a release in March followed by a delay to May, it has now been delayed further to early June.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is the next chapter in the Mirror’s Edge series that was originally released for the PS3, Xbox One and PC back in 2007. The game is being developed in EA DICE’s Frostbite engine and currently planned for a release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’s Design Director, Erik Odeldahl explained the reason behind the delay on the official blog.
As you know, we’re about to open the gates to the city of Glass for participants of the Closed Beta. One of the key features of the Beta and the full game is Social Play, detailed in our latest developer diary.
Taking on Dashes designed by DICE, creating your own Time Trials, climbing the Leaderboards, and connecting with your Runner friends are some of the Social Play features we’re really excited about – and something we want to play flawlessly.
To support the Social Play features, we are using a brand new online technology. We also want to make sure we have the opportunity and time to address player feedback from the Closed Beta. That is why we will give ourselves a bit more time to perfect the game, with a new release date for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst of June 7th (NA) and June 9th (EU). We’re confident that these extra two weeks will make sure the game is as amazing as possible for you the players.
Thank you all for your continued support and excitement for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The return of Faith is imminent.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst will now launch on June 7th in North America and June 9th in Europe. The game will be released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
