Anarchy Reigns finished says Platinum Games, but release date unknown

fter the unbelievable enjoyment we got out of both Vanquish and Bayonetta, there may not be another game in all of the industry that we're looking forward to more than Platinum Games' Anarchy Reigns. The developer has some serious talent, and according to them, their next game is finished. But Sega isn't ready to release it yet. According to them, the release is "TBC."

“That means ‘to be confirmed’, not ‘to be cancelled’,” a Platinum representative said in a video announcement. “We worked really hard to make sure everybody could get the game on time. The game is fully localised. 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.”

“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.”

While there's part of us that wants to beat up Sega like a kid who wont share his Halloween candy, we actually kind of appreciate this strategy. On one hand it's bad that we wont get the game right away, but on the other hand, we'd rather have Sega release this game with surgical precision than have it have trouble selling like Vanquish did. 

You may also remember Platinum Games as the studio that took over Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

    Looking forward to this one! I suspect it will only be played by a few extreme fans, though :(

    Love their games, but can't seem to get excited for this. Not like metal gear revengeance anyway. Not sure it's going to be up my street, though top respect to them for trying something different.

    What is coming out in July here? nothing real big I'm sure their probably holding this until Q4 so they can have a notable game out. Which would be in competition with CoD or whatever. I don't believe this surgical precision is really going to be beneficial for anyone.

    > "It will still be out in July" I don't know whether you actually read the article properly or not, But I doubt they'd hold it for that long anyway. If you haven't noticed, Platinum (hopefully) already have the VERY notable Metal Gear Rising slated for release this Q4, so that theory's not particularly likely.

    Makes perfect sense, they want to release it at the best time possible. Platinum(Clover) doesn't want another Okami, after all.

    Platinum isn't really in control of when the game releases, the publisher is. Capcom released Okami on a the dying Playstation and didn't promote it well and then there was little interest. I believe Platinum makes the best games Sega has published in this generation, they make their biggest titles, and all the biggest titles get released at the end of the year.
