Set for a release in February, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst launch was postponed until May. Now a new release date has been officially announced by the Erik Odeldahl, Design Director of the game. So when is the game actually releasing? Will it finally launch on the said date? Read on to know what the Design Director has to say about the game and its launch.
Via an official blog post, Erik Odeldahl said that Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will launch on PS4, PC and Xbox One on the following dates:
- 07th June 2016 in North America, and
- 09th June 2016 in Europe
The game’s closed beta version will roll out on April 22nd and will be live until April 26th. But why has the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst launch date been postponed once again?
Erik Odeldahl explains why has the game been delayed. Here is what he wrote in the blog post,
“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).”
He further added that the team is confident that these two extra weeks will make the game “as amazing as possible for you the players.” That is we to hope for. Fingers crossed. Hopefully, once the Mirror’s Edge Catalyst launches, we will forget totally forget about the delays. Let it be that amazing, dear makers.
