Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound Delayed into 2017

| January 4, 2016

Xbox One Exclusive Scalebound Delayed into 2017 News Xbox  Xbox One Scalebound Platinum Games

We’re only a few days into the new year, but it seems it’s already time for game delays. The first up is Platinum Games’ epic action RPG Scalebound, which has been pushed back from a 2016 release all the way to next year. The game still remains an Xbox One exclusive, but it will be release in 2017 now.

“As we enter into 2016, we want to provide you with an update on Scalebound, the upcoming Xbox One-exclusive action-RPG that lets you fight alongside a fearsome dragon named Thuban,” reads the announcement.

“Development on the game is going well and we’re really happy with how it’s coming together. Scalebound is one of the biggest games PlatinumGames has ever created: 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.”

The team then goes on to discuss the delay, and the reasons for it. “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. We know you’re excited to see more and thank you for your patience. Scalebound is a truly special project that’s been several years in the making, and we are very proud and inspired by all the work our team has done so far.”

It’s interesting to see a delay come this far in advance of the eventual release date. Scalebound was most likely going to hit in the 2016 holiday season, so this news comes months ahead of the planned release date. It seems that Platinum knows what type of game they want to make, and just how much time they need to accomplish the task. It is always tough to wait longer for great looking games, but it seems that the developer has the best interests of their audience at heart.

Dickholes like yourself give us a terrible name. Now go smoke another one and go slit your wrists and save us your next embarrassing comment loser.

          • DrumStickNinja

            Oh here we go again. PS4 is literally stomping on xbox’s head on the ground and you are coming up with all these conspiracies. lmao I love how dumb xbots are, you are so easy to tumble around.

          • HardWorkingFamilyMan

            Hey dipshit, I have both consoles so why are you still saying Xbot?? Oh my, I honestly can’t believe how fucking stupid you are. Go smoke another one.

          • DrumStickNinja

            No you don’t, you are just some idiot troll that can’t stand being beat so bad so you made a new disqus account and are being a dumb ass all around the net. Sorry your ass hurts dude

          • HardWorkingFamilyMan

            Good one loser.

          • FloridaSun72

            “I have both consoles” is the go to robo response by every butt hurt salty xbot who thinks Halo is still relevant.

          • HardWorkingFamilyMan

            Ok, now that was funny.

          • FloridaSun72

            Stomping? Its taking a shit on its face!!

        • Ocelot forgot his meds

          Sheeptears for your pathetic PSN down again on your hacked pos4 are delicious indeed. Robot golf soon !

          • FloridaSun72

            40 million PS4’s sold by Spring….Wii U selling better than X1 and catches it by summer after Nintendo drops the price. Last MS console ever.

          • MaddenMax420

            That would be the best thing ever.

          • Ocelot forgot his meds

            200 million windows 10 devices to a pathetic 30 million …Sony and its moronic herd of sheep lose. Say baaaah sheepboy !

          • FloridaSun72

            At least you realize the xbone is a dead system otherwise you wouldnt need other devices to fight your battles lol

          • Ocelot forgot his meds

            My math shows sony dead….but then again we all knew that…except you moronic pos4 humping sheep.

      • FloridaSun72

        The hate and sadness is strong in this one….

        • Ocelot forgot his meds

          200 million + windows 10 devices to the pathetic 30 million for the bankruptcy bound fan base robbing Sony. Say baaaaah sheepboy as you take it up the rump.

          Beahahahahah

          • 100ftRoboGolf

            I love PS4 doubling Xbox sales at minimum makes you so desperate. Windows is not Xbox fool

          • Ocelot forgot his meds

            Please post link for Xbox ones current sales sheepsperm…xbox one is windows 10 sheepcrack. 200 million+ to 30 million Fing hilarious. Cry to shinobi nagasaki maybe hell give you another day free on ps+.

          • FloridaSun72

            You have officially run out of damage control rhetoric for the xbrick 1 when you start comparing consoles and windows.

          • Ocelot forgot his meds

            Windows 10 device = Xbox one. Windows 10 install base = massively larger than pos4. Pos4 lose and pos4 humping sheep get mad and reply.

          • FloridaSun72

            Now its just getting sad. Seek professional help.

          • Ocelot forgot his meds

            Yes you should

          • Name

            HAHAHAHA. How pathetic are you dude? Sad really.

          • Ocelot forgot his meds

            30 million one trick pony Sony is whats pathetic

  • Name

    HaHa!

  • Name

    This and quantum break were the only reasons to own an Xbox in 2016. Looks like mine will be strictly a media machine this year.

    • Gold Myne

      That sucks man. Just think, if you would have gotten a PC instead of xbone you at least would be able to use it for gaming this year too. Hopefully 2017 will be a better year for xbox.

  • HardWorkingFamilyMan

    It’s funny how so many PS ppl are on another Xbox article bitching about a game. I don’t understand how you guys have so much time……..oh that’s right PSN is still down.

    • Name

      Yeah we’ve never seen your clown ass hating in PS posts…full blown asshat you are dude.

      • HardWorkingFamilyMan

        You said that like Yoda

        • FloridaSun72

          Backward assed MS is yes?

      • HardWorkingFamilyMan

        Is it considered hating when I have both consoles but I’m sick of everything Sony has promised and has not delivered? PS4 sucks right now so if you consider it hating then so be it. I’m just being honest bro.

        • Name

          I have both systems as well. My Xbox is a media machine currently.

          • FloridaSun72

            Because thats what the xbrick done was intially sold as: a multimedia machine thats to be the center of your living room and oh yea it also plays games too.

            Not focusing on giving gamers what they wanted…a better video gaming experience than last gens is the reason their not releasing sales numbers and PS4 is well on its way to hit 40 million before Spring.

        • FloridaSun72

          No way this guy owns a PS4. He plays Halo and Forza and thats it im betting.

    • Mr Xrat

      PSN is back up. Scalebound still isn’t coming out this year. :)

      • HardWorkingFamilyMan

        Good one squirt

  • Darth Vader™

    Seems a lot of people here don’t own an Xbox but just come to hate as usual.

    • Allen

      Yeah have you seen the PSN article? You go look at the last Xbox live downtime and compare to the trolls there. It’s obvious who is the cancer, both have bad apples but Xbox trolls are out in far greater numbers and none say anything decent like PS fans. I’m posting on Xbox down time, “sucks, I’m sure it will be up soon”, despite this being only down for PSN in forever you get all these ass hurt xbots “OMG Sony is a joke and PSN is shit” lol whatever, I know u are just another blind troll, just wanted to point that out

      • Darth Vader™

        Both have cancerous fanboys, no better nor worse than others. I would say the same in an Xbox article. Calling me a blind troll doesn’t really prove a thing lol.

        • Allen

          Again I see XBL articles about XBL being down I’m nice as are most PS fans commenting.

          There are a couple of PS trolls on them but not many and not as rude as the ass hole xbots that plagued that PSN article.

          I called you a blind troll because you are one. You are constantly blindly supporting xbox and overlooking any and all bad coming from them. I see good too but you can’t just turn a blind eye to the bad and expect to be treated respectfully and honest.

          • Darth Vader™

            How am I a blind troll for preferring something over another? Where have I “blindly” supported them? I usually see the same amount of fanboys from both sides, so I’m not sure what I’m missing here.

            Look, I’m not a fanboy. I just prefer Xbox. Both sides have their fans, fanboys, ups and downs. Not looking for a fight.

          • Allen

            Okay, you might not be a troll, scrolling through your comments you don’t seem to be outright attacking out of no where so I’ll apologize for saying that.

            But you do have to be blind not to see what I’m talking about. There are over 400 comments now but you can easily spot the very very very many ignorant xbox fans totally slamming PSN being down here (fix blank space)

            attackofthefanboy .com/news/psn-worldwide-across-ps4-ps3-ps-vita/

            compare that to the nice comments the PS fans commented here. You cannot call replies to a troll being a troll, lick the tip, tech junkie and more are just idiot trolls that always start flame wars. Look at the order in which comments were made and such. Xbox fanboys are the worst, they don’t admit that xbox live is not superior to PSN (and neither is PSN to XBL) and despite this being the only PSN downtime all year from my memory they blasted sony for it like childish little fools. Oh and my first search found XBL downtime 5-1-15, 6-26-15, 12-10-15 & 12-17-15 and I was only looking for the most recent article. Again not saying anything about XBL but proving my point that XBL has had far more unscheduled downtime than PSN. As you can see in the article the only thing I said other than replying to the trolls was that no service was perfect and that I was sure it would be back up soon.

            attackofthefanboy. com/news/xbox-live-status-down-on-xbox-360-and-xbox-one/

          • Darth Vader™

            I’m not saying that Xbox fanboys aren’t bad. That Robot Golf guy is insane. But that doesn’t mean PS fanboys aren’t bad either. They’re both bad in their own ways. In that link though, I do see that Madden guy and DrimStickNinja trying to cause a ruckus, but then there is Lick The Tip so its pretty much balanced there. In the end, we should just agree both fanboys are cancerous lol.

          • Allen

            I agree and that’s why I said both have their bad apples. But in the PSN you see completely off the wall bull shit from way more xbox fans.

            DrumStickNinja is actually my brother lol but yeah I saw him flicking some shit back to those fools. He doesn’t mean any harm to respectful xbox gamers.

            Madden is an obvious troll, keep an eye out for guest accounts (non disqus) that are greyed out. It means they post under several user names as guests.

          • Darth Vader™

            I’m aware of that. But it is pretty funny seeing the fanboys attack each other. Makes good entertainment lol.

          • Allen

            Yeah, I’m as guilty as anyone else in that lol. I guess it’s being board at work more than anything. Pretty sad when you feel like you’ve gone through all the reddit, gaming, news and facebook you can. have a good one dude.

          • Darth Vader™

            I feel the exact same way. Have a good one my man.

  • Truthhurts24

    Great cant wait to play this quality Xbox exclusive.

    • Mr Xrat

      Just Wait. :^)

      • Truthhurts24

        For a better psn network

        • Mr Xrat

          Meanwhile you wait for a decent console. :)

          • Truthhurts24

            Meanwhile you keep waiting for greatness

          • Mr Xrat

            Got it ages ago. Meanwhile you wait for games. :)

  • Mad God Morgoth

    The game certainly sounds interesting. Too bad its an exclusive.

    • Allen

      Console exclusive only

      • Mad God Morgoth

        Thanks Captain Obvious.

        • Allen

          Just keeping the community from being dumbed down by disinformation.

          • Mad God Morgoth

            Is that supposed to be sarcasm?

          • Allen

            Absolutely not. You stated it was an exclusive and I wanted to make sure everyone knows that it’s not a true exclusive and only a console exclusive. There are millions of PC/PS4 gamers out there that may want to give this game a chance when it releases in 2017.

            Just like how PC gamers get to enjoy a large set of PS4 console exclusives, it’s no different than games like Street Fighter V, No Mans Sky, until recently Rocket League, Amplitude, Blacklight Retribution, DC Universe, Grow Home, Grim Fandango, Hotline Miami 2, Planetside 2, Tekken, The Witness, Counter Spy & Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture that are all also PS4 console exclusives.

          • Mad God Morgoth

            I find it sad you had to up-vote yourself.

            Then make your own general comment about that. It’s not that hard to understand that it’s an X1 exclusive, we all just read the article, so it’s not like anyone is going to miss that obvious detail.

            Why did you waste space making random games off? Unless its going to be ported to PC or PS4 your comment is unnecessary.

          • Allen

            lol I did? I don’t know how I did that but licking these massive cohonas is what I do best lol.

            It’s not an xbox one exclusive. It’s available on PC with free online play. No xbox is required what so ever.

            It’s like me listing all those games I just listed and then trying to claim it’s an exclusive. Those are not exclusive, they are console exclusives. Meaning they are also on PC. I would never be low enough to try and claim them as true exclusives.

            I don’t know if it’s out of desperation or stupidity but xbox fans are always trying to blur the lines or try to get away with something to try and make their platform look more viable. I’ll inform you of what exclusive means:

            True exclusive – Not available on any other platform and never will be. For Xbox 360 & Xbox one these are pretty much limited to Halo, Gears of War & Forza. There are a couple of others but those are very possible to be lost to PC.

            Console Exclusive – This means that the only console to play it on is 1 particular console. Just like what I had just listed and just like Scalebound and Recore. Other Xbox console exclusives include Titanfall, Project Spark, Dead Rising 3, Ryse & Tomb Raider.

            Timed Exclusive – This is a game that has timed exclusivity. Currently about the only one I can think of is Tomb Raider, 2 short months of timed exclusivity before it’s lost to PC and a few more months after that it will be lost to full multi platform.

            PlayStation simply has far more true exclusives, more console exclusives and more timed exclusives.

            In addition to that PS4 has free exclusive content in the best AAA multiplatform games. Just like PS3 did. Batman Arkham Knight, Watchdogs, Mad Max, Far Cry 4, Teeken & Destiny to name a few.

            Not sure what you are saying about random games. I named off quite a few of PS4’s console exclusives (which means they are also on PC).

            It seems that xbox fans are always trying to hide something.

          • Mad God Morgoth

            I honestly do not care about exclusives. It’s not that big of a deal.

            I’m already aware of what counts as an exclusive, that explanation was really unnecessary.

            You named off several random games to tie into the conversation, what’s not to understand?

            Xbox fans always seem to be whinier, but you are really overthinking things.

          • Allen

            We were talking about console exclusives, I named off a ton of PS4 console exclusives explaining what it was.

            It’s all good dude, just the way you originally said it made it sound like you were trying to say this was a true exclusive. Let’s just let this be, you are alright Doffy. Have a good one.

            Oh and I totally agree, xbox fans (some of them) especially this gen seem to be whinier.

          • Mad God Morgoth

            Oh I know what your intentions were, in my initial comment I was practically saying it’s too bad it’s not coming for PS4. I’m not misinformed, I should have been more specific. So no need to over think it friend, but your efforts were kind.

            Well they’ve gotten slightly better over the years….slightly.

  • Mr Xrat

    So much for that greatest lineup then. I guess MS don’t consider Scalebound that great.

  • The Master

    Good thing, I really wasn’t in the mood to see Dante train a dragon.
