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.

No Caption Provided

.. “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.

GameSpot: Xbox One Console Exclusivity Doesn’t Change Plans for PC Version of Double Fine’s Massive Chalice

Man, when I first found out about this game, it sounded like this huge Elder-Scrolls type of game. Double-Fine strategy RPG thing, with an awesome art style and controller support sounds just amazing.

Here's to hoping 'Massive Chalice' isn't just a metaphor! :D

If I were to play this it would be PC anyway. Good get for Microsoft I'll say.

Was Massive Chalice originally only planned for PC? Or were console ports planned as well?

Much disappoint. I'm getting rather tired of non first party exclusives. Must have been a pretty hefty check.

@nightriff: The original Kickstarter was only for a PC game. If I had to guess they probably were looking for additional funding opportunities and managed to reach an accord with Microsoft.

@starvinggamer: Ok that's what I thought, I wasn't hoping for a situation where they were planning on multiple consoles (no specific names) at a certain point and now it is just PC and XBO.

Meh, no recent Double Fine games have been very taxing graphically, so if your PC can't play Massive Chalice when it comes out, what are you doing with your life. So everybody still has a way to play it, even if you don't have an Xbox One.

That's fine. I backed it expecting a Pc version, so any console inclusion at all was just a nice addition.

Feel bad for Double Fine for being in the wrong side with this one.

I could have possibly enjoyed this game.

@vahleticar: Yeah seems kinda silly, I can only assume they weren't too confident about potential sales and took the sure money. Who really knows though, this could turn out to be a smart financial move for Doublefine. It all depends on the reception this game gets and the sales it generates.

@jrm: Sure maybe thats how it was. Hmm smart financial moves, this game will then sadly be forgotten because tons of people wont get to experience it. Like with any exclusive, an indie exclusive c'mon how many can you name

They would have crunched the numbers prior to signing the deal, the financials probably worked out in their favour.

It would be interesting if they do the Games with Gold "free" version to drum up word-of-mouth buzz, and then go in for the sales numbers on PS4 with a discounted release after the timed-exclusivity expires with Xbox. This is just pure speculation on my part.

I feel imo they strayed too far from the purity of their original vision...

So....I joked with a friend how PC gamers really do get a short shrift with all this. First Broken Age is split up in two to fund the second part then PS4 owners get it released on day of Act 2. Massive Chalice from what I understand is still in Early Access on PC? They abandoned that Spacebase game.

@flameboy84: Massive Chalice 1.0 (full release) is happening tomorrow as well. Double Fine announced this a few weeks ago.

This looks like a pretty great game-with-gold get for MS.

It might be the first full free game that they've released to the Xbone that I'm actually buzzed about playing.

I'd say Guacamelee and Rayman were both good gets too.
