Platinum Games’ online beat-’em-up Anarchy Reigns will be releasing in Europe and the US some time in the first quarter of 2013, Sega has announced.

The publisher shared this news via a tweet, in response to a number of queries made by fans.

“The release of Anarchy Reigns has been re-evaluated. We now expect to launch in Europe and America in Q1 of 2013.”

The game which is going to release in Japan next month had some clouds hanging over its head regarding a western release, after Sega decided to postpone its release in the West and skipped showing the game at E3 this year.

This, and the publisher’s restructuring of its Western business to focus only on core IPs after a disappointing  set of financials, had led many to speculate that Sega’s decided to shelve its plans of releasing the game in the West entirely.

The game is going to release on July 5 in Japan for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
