Xbox One exclusive Scalebound won't hatch until 2017

One of Microsoft's highly-anticipated Xbox One titles will need to spend a bit more time in its nest.

Platinum Games and Microsoft have announced Scalebound has been hit with a delay and is now scheduled to release in 2017.

In an update published on Platinum Games’ official website, the studio says Scalebound is the biggest game it’s ever created. “In order to deliver on our ambitious vision and ensure that Scalebound lives up to expectations,” the post says, “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.”

Scalebound was originally planned to be released in fall 2016, although the studio didn’t disclose when exactly in 2017 we can expect the game to be released. Fortunately, Platinum Games plans on sharing more details regarding Scalebound later this year. That means we should expect it to make a big splash at E3 this year and additional game-related shows.

          I forgot about Skyrim, although I was thinking more of a game where one of the main characters is a dragon or uses a dragon to get around.

        Divinity 2? Was a bit wonky at times, but over all was an interesting RPG with a dragon focus.

          Divinity 2 was fantastic after they released the directors edition or whatever.

        Panzer Dragoon Saga. The rail shooter PD games were okay, but this was a full RPG that was fucking outstanding but nobody played it because it came out at the end of the Saturn's short life.

        The positioning-based combat system was so interesting. Like you had four quadrants in any mid-air combat each with weak/strong points and lots of different interesting spells to go with that.
