Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst Delayed to May 2016

DICE have today offered up an update to their upcoming first-person free-runner, Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst — the follow-up to the 2008 original. Catalyst has been delayed until May of next year to ensure, as Senior Producer Sara Jansson explains, ‘it’s as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be’ with it originally scheduled to be released in February.

‘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,’ Jansson explained regarding the delay. ‘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.’
