A lot of folks were expecting Sega and Platinum Games’ upcoming beat ‘em up Anarchy Reigns to land on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this year. It looks like that may not be happening after all, though, unless you live in Japan.
According to developer Platinum Games, Anarchy Reigns is “finished, localized, and ready to go.” Unfortunately, as publisher, Sega is the one that says when the game can launch, and apparently, the company has decided to give the brawler a TBC (to be confirmed) estimated release date.
Anarchy Reigns is still scheduled to launch in Japan on July 5, but North America and Europe will have to wait for further details from Sega. This could very well be a calculated move on the publisher’s part, as it could be trying to avoid releasing Anarchy Reigns alongside other AAA titles that may possibly launch around the same time and spell nothing but bad sales for the game.
