Anarchy Reigns has been delayed, and will now be released in Europe on July 6, publisher Sega has confirmed.
Platinum Games' brawler, the studio's first foray into online gaming, was originally to be released this Autumn, but in May the studio pushed it back to "early 2012."
Sega's Gary Knight said: "We've decided to take a little more time to deliver the full knockout punch. I can't reveal much now, but it's 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."
At the Spike VGA last weekend, Platinum was announced as the new developer of Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance.
