Mirror's Edge Catalyst delayed to May 2016

Mirror's Edge Catalyst has been delayed, according to its official website.

The game, originally slated for a Feb. 23, 2016, release, will now launch on May 24.

Producer Sara Jansson broke the news in an update, in which she explained developer DICE's decision to push back the release date.

"We set out an ambitious vision for Mirror's Edge Catalyst," she wrote. "Achieving that vision and delivering the best possible experience is equally inspiring and challenging. And it takes time."

The team attributes the schedule change to accommodating the first-person action game's increased scope — Jansson mentions its "vast city to explore" and "more engaging story" than the first Mirror's Edge.

Also of note: The initial release date of Feb. 23 was crowded, with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Far Cry Primal also set to arrive.

First revealed at E3 2014 during publisher Electronic Arts' press event, Mirror's Edge Catalyst will launch on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Its predecessor, Mirror's Edge, launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2008. A PC version followed in 2009.
