Scalebound delayed until 2017
An official blog post from the Scalebound team at PlatinumGames has confirmed that the upcoming Xbox One exclusive's release date will be postponed until 2017.
Although the team are pleased with the way the game is coming together, it is being delayed to ensure the high-quality that is expected of this product is met and to avoid any disappointment. The blog post states:
"This will give us the time needed to bring to life all the innovative features and thrilling gameplay experiences that we have planned."
Scalebound is an action-RPG in which you form a partnership with a proud and formidable dragon named Thuban. Together you must combat the evil that threatens to engulf and destroy Draconis and Earth as well as a host of other parallel worlds. Use your weapons to defeat your enemies conventionally or order your dragon to destroy them in a fiery inferno, and team up with other players to take down the strongest foes.
The decision to postpone release will, of course, be disappointing for fans eagerly awaiting the game's launch and the developer's acknowledge this, saying: "We know you’re excited to see more and thank you for your patience."
Evidently more details will be released as the development process continues throughout the year and E3 2016 will no doubt give us a better update on the game's progress.
