Another game many have been excited about playing that was expected to be released sometime in 2016 will require a bit more patience. Scalebound, a fantasy action-RPG that will see you adventuring with a dragon at your side, has been pushed back to a 2017 release.
When exactly the game will be released in 2017 is not yet clear. It was expected in late 2016 originally, so if it gets released in the first few months of next year it won’t be too bad. If it gets bumped all the way back to a fall 2017 release, well, hopefully the final product will be worth the patience.

We hope you had a great New Year’s!
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.
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.
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.
We will be sharing more about our vision for Scalebound later this year and can’t wait to give you a closer look at the world of Draconis and the incredible creatures and experiences we’re building.
