DICE’s first person parkour title is delayed by three months.
DICE’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has been delayed but only by a few months. Originally set to release on February 23rd 2016, it will now be out on May 24th 2016.
Senior producer Sara Jansson explained this decision in an official statement: “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 is slated to release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Better a delay than an unpolished game, right? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
