In what should come as no surprise given the game's title, Anarchy Reigns is having a hard time conforming to a schedule. Sega today announced another delay for Anarchy Reigns, saying the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 action game is now set for a July release.
Originally announced as a fall 2011 title and then pushed to January 2012, Anarchy Reigns is now set to arrive July 3 in North America, July 5 in Australia, and July 6 in Europe. In a statement accompanying news of the delay, Sega West senior vice president of marketing Gary Knight suggested the postponement is due to new features being added.
"Anarchy Reigns brings a new take to the brawler genre, and we've decided to take a little more time to deliver the full knockout punch," Knight teased. "I can't reveal much now, but it's something to do with scale. Let's just say traditional one-on-one or two-versus-two fighters will be a thing of the past."
Developed by Platinum Games, Anarchy Reigns is a third-person brawler set in a postapocalyptic war zone filled with tsunamis, black holes, and all sorts of hazards. The game will feature online multiplayer using existing characters from the studio's previous title MadWorld, as well as original characters.
