I'm glad you asked!
Your question is not very specific ("scales") but let's try.
D scales in terms of codebase size since the stdlib is rich
already, build times are good and chances are will get better
D scales in terms of mental load because it has dependency
management and SemVer (you can maintain a large amount of code
with little breakage). Without DUB I couldn't hope to maintain so
much code, SemVer lets you update things when you need them
D scales to teams because it has builtin unittests, invariant,
builtin heredoc (though, like C++, you will probably need to
restrain some features).
D scales to newer platforms thanks to multiple backends, with
very many platforms announced for GDC and iPhone and Webasm
coming to LDC.
