Electronics Arts (EA) has delayed the launch of the anticipated Mirror's Edge Catalyst and pushed its original release date from February to May 2016. The action-adventure game will be available on PC via Origin in addition to its debut on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Producer Sara Jansson in a brief update confirmed the delay and said Mirror's Edge Catalyst will now be available starting 24 May, 2016. The UK release is set for 26 May. Although Jansson has not revealed the reason behind the delay, she mentions that the additional months will help the developer team to deliver the "most immersive action-adventure game with fluid movement and combat in first person".

"We will use these few extra months to make sure that when you step into the massive City of Glass and experience the rise of Faith, it's as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be," said.

Apart from the delay, Jannson claimed that Mirror's Edge Catalyst has "received an incredible response" from fans across the globe following its announcement at the company's press briefing at E3 earlier this year. The game is a reboot of Mirror's Edge that was launched in 2008.
