Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, a game a great many people are excited about, was originally intended to launch on February 23rd. Back in October, it’s developer DICE knew that it needed more time to bake. Thus, they pushed Catalyst back to May 24th. Now, with May 24th about a month away, Erik Odeldahl, Design Director of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, revealed another delay is hindering the game’s release. Fortunately, it’s a relatively minor one.
Odeldahl announced today that the Mirror’s Edge reboot will be parkouring onto consoles on June 7th. That’s a two week delay from the intended release, which really isn’t a big deal. The reasoning behind the delay is to apparently perfect the Social Play features being implemented in the game. Here is Erik’s statement:
“To support the Social Play features, we are using a brand new online technology. We also want to make sure we have the opportunity and time to address player feedback from the Closed Beta. That is why we will give ourselves a bit more time to perfect the game, with a new release date for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst of June 7th (NA) and June 9th (EU). We’re confident that these extra two weeks will make sure the game is as amazing as possible for you the players.”
Two more weeks and everyone will have the perfect Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. Hang in there, all. Faith will be free running once again on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 7th.
