Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Delayed to June, Design Director States Need for “More Time to Perfect the Game”
Design Director Erik Odeldahl announced some shocking and disappointing news in a new blog post today concerning the launch of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst: the game has been delayed again, this time to June 7th in North America and June 9th in Europe.
According to the post:
As you know, we’re about to open the gates to the city of Glass for participants of the Closed Beta. One of the key features of the Beta and the full game is Social Play, detailed in our latest developer diary.
Taking on Dashes designed by DICE, creating your own Time Trials, climbing the Leaderboards, and connecting with your Runner friends are some of the Social Play features we’re really excited about – and something we want to play flawlessly.
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.
Thank you all for your continued support and excitement for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. The return of Faith is imminent.
Hopefully this will be the last delay needed to polish the title, as I’m sure plenty of fans are anxious to play the highly anticipated sequel.
