Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Delayed to Early June

Electronic Arts and DICE have delayed Mirror’s Edge Catalyst once again, this time from its previously planned May 24 release date to June 7 in North America and June 9 in Europe.

In a blog post, design director Erik Odeldahl explains that DICE wants more time to address player feedback from the closed beta that begins tomorrow.

Erik Odeldahl: “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.”
