One of the most highly anticipated games of 2017 is undoubtedly the RPG game entitled Scalebound. Earlier this month rumors started pointing out that its launch date might be postponed and sadly, Microsoft just confirmed that. A Microsoft official stated that the company’s game developing department is focusing on creating other major games right now such as Halo Wars 2 and Sea of Thieves thus meaning that Scalebound has to wait.
This came as a complete surprise since the game was surrounded with so much excitement and fans thought that this was enough to ensure its production. Well, it looks like Microsoft has other goals right now. The game was first unveiled at E3 2014 and it was supposed to drop during 2016, but that got postponed until 2017. In fact, this isn’t the first time Scalebound is getting pushed back because initially it was announced back in 2006, but the developers opted to create Bayonetta instead.
While Microsoft fans are certainly upset, they should know that they are going to receive other greater games during 2017. Especially since Microsoft announced that the sole reason Scalebound is getting cancelled is to give the company time to develop games like State of Decay 2, Crackdown 3 and many more. It will probably be a while until we can get to see another game created by Hideki Kamiya and PlatinumGames together, the original directive departments of Scalebound.
Nonetheless, even though one game is getting cancelled we can only be excited about what’s to come. For example Halo Wars 2, another installment in the renowned Halo franchise. Players should be happy to know that the multiplayer mode of Halo will keep them entertained.
