Sega and action game developer Platinum Games have delayed Anarchy Reigns again, pushing the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game back six months from January to July 3 in North America (July 5 in Europe, July 6 in Australia). This marks the second time Anarchy Reigns has seen a delay; it was originally scheduled to ship in fall of this year. Sega vaguely attributes the new July release date to needing "a little more time" to make additions or adjustments that have "something to do with scale," suggesting a new gameplay feature. The postponed release comes just several days after Konami revealed that Platinum took over development of the newly retitled Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance from Kojima Productions, and appeared to significantly rework the original Metal Gear Solid: Rising concept shown in 2009. Platinum's previous titles since opening its doors in 2006 include critically-acclaimed action games like Bayonetta, Vanquish, and MadWorld. Anarchy Reigns will be an online multiplayer beat'em up -- the first project with a strong online component from the Osaka-based developer.
