Sega has announced that Anarchy Reigns, the next game from new Metal Gear Rising developer Platinum Games, has been delayed again. The brawler, which was originally tagged with a Fall 2011 release date, will now be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in July 2012.
But it sounds like the cause of the delay is to make the game bigger and anarchy-er:
“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…,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Sega West.
