Xbox One Console Exclusivity Doesn’t Change Plans for PC Version of Double Fine’s Massive Chalice
Massive Chalice backers will still get the game on PC first.
Microsoft’s E3 press conference was packed with games, so you might have missed the news that Double Fine’s Massive Chalice was announced as a console exclusive for Xbox One.
The strategy game was successfully Kickstarted last year, raising a total of $1,229,014, well over the $750,000 funding goal Double Fine was looking for. At the time, backers thought they were funding a PC game, and according to project lead Brad Muir and the Massive Chalice team, the Xbox One news shouldn't worry them at all.
“Nothing has changed with our plans to bring Massive Chalice to the PC and to make it available for our backers first,” they said in a recent update to backers. “YEAH! During this time we'll be porting the game to the Xbox One.
As soon as we're done porting the game, we'll launch it as a console exclusive on Xbox One. We're super stoked to have this additional support in giving Massive Chalice the next-gen console treatment!“
Massive Chalice was billed as a tactical strategy game that will be a hybrid of X-COM and Final Fantasy Tactics, coupled with a bloodlines and breeding mechanic.
