Mirror's Edge Catalyst, the first-person running game from EA and DICE, has seen its release delayed. Originally set for a May 24 release in North America and May 26 in Europe, the game will now debut on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on June 7 in North America, and June 9 in Europe.
In a blog post, design director Erik Odeldahl said that the two-week delay would help DICE refine the new Social Play features.
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 is still going forward as planned, and is set to begin on Friday, April 22.
