Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Delayed to May 2016 to “Accomplish the Highest Quality Possible”


Senior Producer of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Sara Jansson, announced that the game will be delayed until May 24th, 2016.

Sara Jansson explains:

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.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is shaping up to be one of the most exciting releases of 2016

This is rather disappointing news, as Mirror's Edge Catalyst, looks to be one of the most exciting gaming experiences coming to current-gen consoles and PC in 2016. Although, if a delay of a few months will help the team at DICE deliver a more refined and complete product, with as less issues as possible at launch, then they should definitely use the time. Hopefully, Mirror's Edge Catalyst gets a smooth release. Judging by Star Wars Battlefront's recent Beta, it seems that the studio is indeed dedicated to delivering highly optimized experiences on both consoles and a various selection of PC setups, so lets hope that the same holds true for Mirror's Edge Catalyst.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst is planned to release im May 24, 2016, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available.
