Anarchy Reigns Delay Confirmed by Platinum, Release Date “To Be Confirmed”

May 25, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

According to developer Platinum Games, Anarchy Reigns has been delayed by Sega even though localization is complete and the title is ready for release.

The publisher has given the game a “TBC” release date, which Platinum has clarified as meaning “‘to be confirmed,’ not ‘to be cancelled.’” The developer voiced their disappointment in the delay, making it clear that a punctual release was important to the studio.

We worked really hard to make sure everybody could get the game on time. The game is fully localized. If you buy the Japanese version or any version, it’s going to have all the languages in it. We really wanted everybody online around the world to play together at the same time, but unfortunately that’s not going to happen.

Platinum Games went on to emphasize that the Western release of Anarchy Reigns is now in the hands of Sega, saying:

In the West, Sega is looking for the best time to put it out. It will still be out in July. There will still be ways for you to get it if you know where to go. We’re still 100 per cent behind the game and we still want to connect with you and play with you and have a good time. So let’s make sure that happens no matter what bad news we get.

Stay tuned to PlayStation LifeStyle for future updates on Anarchy Reigns. In the meantime, get pumped for Platinum’s other highly anticipated title Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
