Microsoft And Platinum Games’ ‘Scalebound’ Has Been Cancelled

Monday 9th January 2017 by Derek Kraneveldt

Briefly: The first major AAA delay of 2016… has become the first AAA cancellation of 2017.

Rumours ran rampant this morning, with multiple sources quoting that Platinum Games’ and Microsoft had parted ways, with Scalebound left in major trouble, and potentially even cancelled.

Just moments ago, Microsoft confirmed to IGN that Scalebound will indeed never be released. Here’s the quote from Microsoft:

“After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound. We’re working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves and other great experiences.”

Josh Jackson noted some extreme excitement for the title after its gameplay footage debut, and I have to say that it’s damned disappointing that this promising-looking title will never see the light of day.

Were you looking forward to the title? Be sure to sound out in the comments below.
