The Xbox One exclusive, which was originally slated for sometime in 2016, will require more development time.
“In order to deliver on our ambitious vision and ensure that Scalebound lives up to expectations, we will be launching the game in 2017,” PlatinumGames explained. “This will give us the time needed to bring to life all the innovative features and thrilling gameplay experiences that we have planned.”
The developer also notes that they’ll be sharing more details about their vision for Scalebound later this year.
Scalebound was one of our most anticipated upcoming games of 2016, so it’s a bit of a bummer that it has been delayed into 2017. We are a little surprised that the delay was announced so quickly in 2016 to get the announcement out of the way, but we have faith that PlatinumGames knows what they’re doing.
