A post on the official Mirror’s Edge website from game producer Sara Jansson confirms that Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has been delayed from its original February 26th release date to May 24th, 2016. Jansson explained the reason for the delay was in order to make sure the “ambitious vision” of the game they envisioned can be achieved.
“Weâ€™re building the most immersive action-adventure game with fluid movement and combat in first person. Mirrorâ€™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 weâ€™ve made the decision to bring Mirrorâ€™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, itâ€™s as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be.”
It’s also worth noting that other games that were scheduled to be released on that day are Deus Ex: Mankind Divided from Square-Enix/Eidos and Ubisoft’s Far Cry: Primal. Moving the game away from that date can only help the game get more exposure and potentially more sales. Given the few extra months of polish as well and the game is sure to meet fan’s eager expectations.
