Platinum taking on too many projects perhaps? Or Kamiya needed to free himself up to make Bayonetta 3 for Nintendo Switch.......

Eurogamer are claiming it's been canned.

That was pretty much the only game I'm interested in on the bone.

Aw, working in the games industry can be horrible, I heard he had a spat with some 'gamers' on Twitter.

Hope he picks himself up.

Oh man. Gotta feel for all involved :( Hope Kamiya takes as long as he needs.

A project looking for a backer type thing, would be my guess. Good on MS for taking a punt on it. I hope Platinum get to make it one day. Y'know, if it's the game they really want to make above all others.

Microsoft confirms it:
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. For more information on our 2017 plans, please visit: https://news.xbox.com/2017/01/05/xbox-c ... r-in-2016/.

Microsoft said that they have great respect for Platinum Games and that Scalebound's cancellation came down to "business decisions."

I kinda hoped Platinum would get a break soon, truly a company with some terrible fortunes.

Jaysus, slight glint on horizon is mention of crackdown 3, I thought that was on course to be vapour ware, maybe both were looking in trouble and they jettisoned the unknown entity.

Be interesting to see if anything happens with this going forward.

Wonder if it might be something another big publisher could step in to and fund to completion. Have to wonder who actually owns the work done on it to date though.

Alledgedly Crackdown is having some Dev troubles too :(

Honestly gutted about this. Was one of the few things making me keep my Xbone around. I'll probably sell and see how they handle the scorpio

Microsoft owns the IP but who knows maybe someone else would like to buy the IP and work out from under them.

100 quid at CEX. Which I can use to buy Resi 7 and Yakuza 7.
