Electronic Arts has confirmed that the latest title in the acclaimed Mirror’s Edge series has obtained an official delay until May of 2016.
“Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst,” States a post on the game’s official site. “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.”
The team attributes the schedule change to accommodating the first-person action game’s increased scope — Jansson mentions its “vast city to explore” and “more engaging story” than the first Mirror’s Edge.
This news was ascertained via the company’s quarterly earnings report, as the title was originally slated to release February 23rd 2016.
For those who have not been following the title, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will see gamers take to the dystopian plains of The City, in which players will be imbued with a range of free-running skills, in order to liberate their allies, and abolish The City’s corrupt businesses.
