EA Dice has announced that its upcoming parkour-platformer, Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, has been delayed by two weeks. The game will now launch in North America on June 7th and in Europe on June 9th.
Design Director Erik Odeldahl states that the reason for the delay is due to the team using new online technology for the title’s Social Play features and so that they have enough time to address community feedback from the Closed Beta:
“We are using a brand new online technology [for Social Play] and we want to make sure we have the opportunity and time to address player feedback from the Closed Beta.”
“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.”
The closed beta for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst starts this week on April 22 and ends the following week on April 26.
