Anarchy Reigns delayed to Summer 2012

by

SEGA has announced the second delay for PlatinumGames multiplayer online-focused ‘Beat em up’ on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Originally slated for release in December 2011 and then March 2012, it has again been delayed; This time to July 3rd. Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA West gave vague details in the following statement:

“ANARCHY REIGNS brings a new take to the brawler genre and we have decided to take a little more time to deliver the full knockout punch. I can’t reveal much now, but it has 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,”

Typically SEGA releases the majority of their titles within the first quarter of the year as that is when their financial season ends. For comparison to the rest of the industry Summer is typically very light on high-profile video game releases, meaning the title may have a better chance at succeeding in sales.

It is also worth nothing that Anarchy Reigns‘ fairly small development studio is working on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for Konami along with other projects not yet revealed, which could be slowing their productivity down.
