Microsoft Studios & Platinum Games' Scalebound has been cancelled

Microsoft Studios & Platinum Games' Scalebound has been cancelled

Following the in-development action-RPG's surprise cancellation, it appears Microsoft is now scrubbing it from any of its official web outlets.

In a statement, Microsoft said: "After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound".

ANYONE excited about Scalebound, the upcoming dragon brawler from Platinum Games and Microsoft Studios, is about to take a big blow.

"Scalebound is one of the biggest games PlatinumGames has ever created: an epic adventure filled with exploration and fantasy gameplay, inventive multiplayer, and action-packed battles on an unbelievable scale - all set in a lovely and evolving world". The game's official page had also been removed from the Xbox website. Sources for both outlets stated Microsoft and the developer chose to part ways at the end of 2016 and that development on Scalebound had stopped. This dashed any hopes that the Platinum Games-developed title could be revived and that Microsoft would change its mind.

Quincy Expected to Get 12-18 Inches of Snow
At the dairy coolers of Food City on Volunteer Parkway, Thomas Mitchell was surrounded by reminders of the winter storm. Charlotte last saw a 3-inch or greater snow event about a year ago when a total of 3.3 inches fell January 22-23, 2016.

Thanks, IGN and Windows Central. With continuing issues surrounding the game's engine and overdue deadlines, the decision was made that the project could no longer continue. According to sources at Eurogamer, the relationship between Microsoft and Platinum soured after Gamescom previous year. Drew and the dragon share the same life, so players would need to manage and command the dragon while fighting alongside Drew. However, Scalebound retained its place behind schedule, to Microsoft's detriment.

And apparently Crackdown 3, an Xbox One/PC title that's seen delays and lack of information, is also floundering. Microsoft first announced the game almost three years ago, during the Xbox press conference at E3 2014. Microsoft is expected to announce more over the coming months as it must ensure an exciting library of games to support the launch of the Xbox Scorpio later this year.

"We will be sharing more about our vision for Scalebound later this year and can't wait to give you a closer look at the world of Draconis and the incredible creatures and experiences we're building".
