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.
