Anarchy Reigns delayed until 2013
Western release of Platinum Games action title "re-evaluated" by Sega with no reason given; Japanese launch still set for July 5.
The forces of law and order can sleep soundly this summer, as Sega confirmed that the Western release of Anarchy Reigns has been delayed yet again, this time to the first quarter of 2013. Sega posted on its official Twitter feed that "the release of Anarchy Reigns has been re-evaluated," marking the fourth delay for the Platinum Games-developed title.
Anarchy Reigns was originally announced as a fall 2011 title, before being pushed to January 2012, and then again to July 3, and once more to later in the month. No specific reason for the latest delay was divulged.
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.
