Platinum Games today announced that its Xbox One exclusive action-RPG, Scalebound, will be delayed until 2017.
The development team revealed that its happy with how the game is coming together and that development is going well. But it also noted that it’s going to be the biggest game that Platinum Games has ever created.
“In order to deliver on our ambitious vision and ensure that Scalebound lives up to expectations,” Platinum Games wrote on its site, “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.”
The developer described the game as “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 summed Scalebound up as being the game the game has always dreamed of making.
Platinum certainly isn’t short of work at the moment. Between the ongoing development of Scalebound and its work on Star Fox Zero, Nier Automata, and a rumoured Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, this year looks quite busy.
