In July, Yacht Club Games confirmed
that its platformer Shovel Knight
would be released on retail disc for the Xbox One this coming week. The title has been available as a digital download since its release. This will now continue to be the case as Yacht Club Games has announced that, due to "publishing policies" on the Xbox One, they will not be releasing a physical version at this time and it is now in "indefinite limbo".
Despite this disappointing news, the developer has stressed that work is continuing in the hope that a physical version of the game can be released in the future. Furthermore, the current digital version will continue to be supported with new content.
