Xbox exclusive Scalebound delayed into 2017

ScaleboundIt’s only the fourth day of 2016, and already we have our first delayed game announcement. Platinum Games’ Xbox One exclusive Scalebound will now release in 2017 instead of the 2016 .

An update on the studio’s blog says the following:

“As we enter into 2016, we want to provide you with an update on Scalebound, the upcoming Xbox One-exclusive action-RPG that lets you fight alongside a fearsome dragon named Thuban.

Development on the game is going well and we’re really happy with how it’s coming together. Scalebound is one of the biggest games PlatinumGames has ever created: an epic adventure filled with exploration and fantasy gameplay, inventive multiplayer, and action-packed battles on an unbelievable scale – all set in a beautiful and evolving world. It’s the game our team has always dreamed of making.

In order to deliver on our ambitious vision and ensure that Scalebound lives up to expectations, we will be launching the game in 2017. This will give us the time needed to bring to life all the innovative features and thrilling gameplay experiences that we have planned.

We know you’re excited to see more and thank you for your patience. Scalebound is a truly special project that’s been several years in the making, and we are very proud and inspired by all the work our team has done so far.”

Fans can at least look forward to more updates throughout the year, but if this was high on your must-buy list, then shimmy it down a little bit.
