Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Delayed To June
DICE has postponed its grand opening of the City of Glass, now that free-running sequel Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has been delayed for a second time. Originally slated to arrive towards the end of May, the developer has confirmed that Faith will now make a beeline for PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 7 in North America and June 9 in Europe.
Citing last-minute tweaks to Social Play features and an emphasis to address the potential player feedback that will no doubt surface via this weekend’s beta test, here’s the official statement from DICE:
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.
In light of today’s confirmation, look for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst to launch across PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 7 and June 9 in North America and Europe, respectively. Should you be looking to pick up DICE’s sequel on the latter platform, the studio recently published the minimum and required specs ahead of the closed beta.
