Mirror's Edge Catalyst has been delayed to May 24, 2016, to give DICE more time to make the game "as entertaining, impressive, and memorable as it can be".

The game had previously been due to release on February 25.

"Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror's Edge Catalyst. Achieving that vision and delivering the best possible experience is equally inspiring and challenging. And it takes time," said producer Sara Jansson, explaining the delay on EA's website. "We set out to create a vast city to explore, full of stunning vistas, majestic skyscrapers, and mysterious tunnels. We're building the most immersive action-adventure game with fluid movement and combat in first person. Mirror's Edge Catalyst will be an all-new playground with a deeper and more engaging story - and we want to accomplish all these goals to the highest quality possible.

"So we've made the decision to bring Mirror's Edge to the world starting May 24, 2016. 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."

Jansson later promised on Twitter that the game would be worth the wait.

But even with the delay, there are still plenty of other games to get excited for in February, with XCOM 2, Battleborn, Street Fighter V, Deus Ex Mankind Divided and Far Cry Primal all still due to arrive earlier in the month.

The original Mirror's Edge, meanwhile, is rumoured to be coming to Xbox One backwards compatibility once the service launches in full later this year.
