In a turn of events Mirror's Edge Catalyst
has now been pushed back from its planned May 24th release date.
In a post made on the game's official website, Design Director Erik Odeldahl explained why the Social Play features are the root cause.
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 Mirror's Edge Catalyst
closed beta will still run as planned from April 22nd - April 26th.
