Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has been delayed to May 2016

Electronic Arts has announced that Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will now launch in May 2016.

The long awaited sequel is now set to release on May 24, 2016, instead of February 23 as originally planned.

A blog post on the Mirror’s Edge website goes into more detail regarding the delay:

“Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst,” said producer Sara Jansson.. “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.”

This sudden delay will push Mirror’s Edge Catalyst out of publisher Electronic Art’s current financial year, which will last until the end of March 2016.

There is some good news to draw from this however, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was originally slated to launch in the same week as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Far Cry: Primal.

Being pushed back to May 2016 should allow the open-world sequel a better chance of commercial success, now it isn’t stuck between a bunch of new releases.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will launch on May 24, 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
