"Years ago, we set out an ambitious vision for Mirror's Edge Catalyst," reads a post on the game's official website from producer Sara Jansson. "Achieving that vision and delivering the best possible experience is equally inspiring and challenging. And it takes time.

"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."

The extra development time will be used 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."

The news comes out alongside the release of publisher Electronic Arts' quarterly earnings report. Catalyst had been previously scheduled for launch on February 23, 2016. This delay pushes it out of EA's current financial year, which runs through the end of March.

Catalyst is due out for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. You can read our impressions of the game from Gamescom here.
