EA has announced that the much anticipated Mirror's Edge: Catalyst has been delayed until May 2016.
As you might expect no concrete reason was given for the delay. Looks like the team needs a little more time for "polish".
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.
We've waited years for a new Mirror's Edge game. What's the harm in waiting a few months more.
The game was originally set for release in February 23, 2016. That's now been shifted back to May 24, 2016.
