Electronic Arts has announced that Mirror's Edge Catalyst has been delayed to May 2016. The game was due to release in February, but the developer decided to delay it in order to deliver the most entertaining and impressive experience as possible.
"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 Sara Jansson, Mirror's Edge Catalyst's Senior Producer. "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.
"Thank you again for your patience and support. Keep the Faith."
Despite the delay, players in general can still look forward to February, as there are many other great titles releasing that month, including Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Far Cry Primal.
