Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound Delayed to 2017

Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound Delayed to 2017

Nooooooooo!

I am devastated by this news as this game was pretty much the only Xbox exclusive I was excited for this year. Scalebound is an action-RPG set in the world of Draconis, where you play Drew, some dude who was pulled into the world, who bonds with a giant dragon, Thuban. They fight along side each other, ridding Draconis of evil creatures.

The developer PlatinumGames states in an update on their official website:

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.

They do mention however that development is going well and they're really happy with how it's coming together.

Despite being super excited for this game to come out this year, I would much rather wait a little longer than be disappointed by incomplete or buggy work. Check out the video below for 8 minutes of footage by IGN for their IGN First coverage of Scalebound.
