Anarchy Reigns delayed again

Sega delays Platinum Games' Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 action brawler in West to later date in July; Japanese launch on July 5 unchanged.

Anarchy Reigns has been delayed for a third time. An update on the Platinum Games website reveals the studio's action brawler will miss its previously announced July 3 release date and is now slated to arrive for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at a later date in the month. The Japanese release date of July 5 remains unchanged.

Anarchy Reigns won't hit the West on schedule.

Anarchy Reigns was originally announced as a fall 2011 title, before being pushed to January 2012, and then again to July 3. No specific reason for the latest delay was divulged, with Platinum Games saying only that publisher Sega was "looking for the best time" to publish the project in the West.

Anarchy Reigns is a third-person brawler set in a postapocalyptic war zone filled with tsunamis, black holes, and other hazards. The game will feature online multiplayer using existing characters from the studio's previous title MadWorld, as well as original characters.

Metal Gear Rising took priority.

I have no issues with this. I would have even fewer if it turned out that Lt Col Burns is a playable character. Oh, that would be sweet.

Good , i don't want them releasing a shoddy half baked game ripe with bugs. In the meantime Bayonneta will hold my attention as she always does.

I really hope this game comes out soon. According to the forums over at P* the game is completely finished. SEGA just said let's not release it right now.

 

This NEEDS to come out ASAP.

It's only because they're focusing on MGS Revengence.

Best time? I hope you don't put it out around this fall with all the other tittles. That would be a disaster. I really wanna play as Jack Cayman again. I miss Madworld.

 @Legrieme Are you a spambot? Because you keep trying to divert people to your own site, and posting comments that are only vaguely related to GameSpot's articles.

 @megakick After Ninja Gaiden 3, I personally wouldn't recommend anyone taking a cue from Team Ninja as they are now.

@Xplode_77 The fact the Japanese release is unchanged suggests otherwise.

@ExplicitMike The article says it'll be released "at a later date in the month", so rest easy.

What else needs to be polished when it's finished? They already pushed the date back 7 months for additional polish.

 

P* themselves said the game is finised 100% localized and everything. SEGA is just ****ing with P* fans at this point.

"Reorganizing" in the case of Sega lately? An accurate BS-to-English translation would be "finding new and creative ways to piss off as many people as humanly possible." Not that they haven't had a history of that or anything :awesome:
