Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst has been delayed


Recently AAA developers have been much more willing to  delay games, with the most recent addition to the delayed list being Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, which has been delayed until May 24th 2016.

This delay is said to help make the game “as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be”, which is undoubtedly a good thing if it does indeed result in a better and more stable game on release, after all we do not want to see another Batman Arkham Knight or Assassin’s Creed: Unity here.


        Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror’s Edgeâ„¢ 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.

When we have already waited so long for a sequel to Mirror’s Edge, 3 extra months is not exactly too much to ask, especially if it results in a better game for all.
