Platinum Games recently announced that Scalebound is set to be delayed until next year 2017.
Scalebound, headed by Bayonetta‘s director Hideki Kamiya, promises a lot re: scale and undoubtedly the grand scope of the dragon-riding fantasy game teased at E3 2014 is the reason chalked up to the delay. Platinum Games in their statement however tried to assure fans that they haven’t hit any roadblocks in the development of Scalebound:
Development on the game is going well and we’re really happy with how it’s coming together… [Scalebound is] 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’s the game our team has always dreamed of making
Hopefully Platinum will be able to tame the wild scaly beasts in the new time scale.
Scalebound is slated for release in 2017
