Platinum Games has announced that their upcoming Xbox One title has been delayed. Scalebound was originally intended to release later this year. However, the game has been pushed to a 2017 release date. Platinum Games explained that the game was delayed in order to meet their standards. The last we saw of Scalebound was at Gamescom 2015.
Scalebound joins the slew of games that have received substantial delays. Uncharted 4 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided are two of the recent big titles that have received lengthy delays. This delay is indicative of a problem in the industry. Many games merit and could benefit from the delays that they face. However, in the recent years, the delays that games have experienced are nothing short of egregious.
