Mirror’s Edge Catalyst was supposed to be released on 26th May on PS4, Xbox One and PC, although the game has sadly been delayed. In better news, it’s only a two week delay, with the game launching on June 9th instead.

Erik Odeldahl, the Design Director of the game, had the following to say in a blog post in regard to the delay:

“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.”

The Closed Beta of the open-world first person Parkour game is currently in progress, so hopefully DICE will be able to take everything into consideration based on any feedback that they receive before the game launches that little bit later than it was originally scheduled.
