EA have pushed the release of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst back a couple of weeks, bumping it from late May to early June. The game will now come out on 7 June (US) or 9 June (EU).
The usual sort of reasons are given in the blog update about this change, namely that: “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.”
That closed beta period for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst begins today (those who have access may already have been notified, but the bulk of the invites go out 22 April), and EA add that the ‘social’ features are “something we want to play flawlessly”.
