‘Mirror’s Edge Catalyst’ Pushed Into May 2016

Mirror’s Edge fans have to wait a few extra months for their next mission with Faith, as DICE is moving the release date of Catalyst back a few months.

To the thunderous delight of Mirror’s Edge fans, DICE teased a sequel to the cult-classic action-freerunning title during E3 2013. Officially titled “Mirror’s Edge Catalyst”, the sequel tells of Faith’s origins, and will use the power of DICE’s in-house Frostbite 3 Engine. While early reports left hardcore fans worried with rumors of a focus on gun-play over freerunning, DICE has since stated that the sequel will feature a more in-depth traversal system, with larger and more involved environments set within the free-roam City of Glass.

Catalyst was originally scheduled to release for next-gen and PC next February, however a new statement from DICE confirms that the release date has been pushed into the latter half of May 2016. Hosted on the official Mirror’s Edge Catalyst website, Senior Producer Sara Jansson’s message states that the delay comes from “delivering the best possible experience”. The sequel is proving to be one of DICE’s most ambitious games; the development team requires more time to achieve their full vision of the City of Glass and its “stunning vistas, majestic skyscrapers, and mysterious tunnels”.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will release on 5/24 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
