We bring you the the great news that Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has been delayed from 23 February 2016 to 24 May 2016. Why do we consider this great news? Have a look at the games bunched up in the first quarter and it’s apparent why DICE and EA delayed the game, other than their official statement.
Senior Producer, Sara Jansson, provided a reason for the delay:
[quote]Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror’s Edge™ Catalyst. Achieving that vision and delivering the best possible experience is equally inspiring and challenging. And it takes time. We set out to create a vast city to explore, full of stunning vistas, majestic skyscrapers, and mysterious tunnels. We’re building the most immersive action-adventure game with fluid movement and combat in first person. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will be an all-new playground with a deeper and more engaging story – and we want to accomplish all these goals to the highest quality possible.
So we’ve made the decision to bring Mirror’s Edge to the world starting May 24, 2016. We will use these few extra months to make sure that when you step into the massive City of Glass and experience the rise of Faith, it’s as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be.
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst has received an incredible response from fans around the world over the past months. You’ve been eager to see the return of Faith and the unique style and gameplay that only Mirror’s Edge can create. Witnessing your positive reactions has been amazing motivation for me and the rest of our passionate team at DICE.
Thank you again for your patience and support. Keep the Faith.

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to spend some good time with the game and walked away wanting much, much more. This is definitely one to keep an eye on in 2016. If you enjoyed the first one I can tell you that this, somehow, even tops that masterpiece. With some extra time at hand I’m drooling at the prospects.
