Earlier this year Microsoft announced that Scalebound, the game that had been in development in partnership with PlatinumGames, had been canceled. After the announcement was made public, the Producer behind Scalebound at PlatinumGames decided to leave the development studio.
While there has been relative silence on the game since that announcement, Microsoft has made an interesting move – they renewed the Scalebound trademark (via NeoGaf). Now, since they own the IP they could simply be protecting it – but there's a chance they decided to revive it… right?
The game and artbook still exist on Amazon, surely that means something (grasping at straws here)?
Let the emotional roller coaster begin.
Shortly after the cancellation of Scalebound, Xbox Head Phil Spencer, spoke out on the game, calling the cancellation a "difficult decision," but that it was the better choice for Xbox gamers. Spencer even went on to say that Xbox had to "take risks" after Scalebound's cancellation… Maybe that risk was bringing it back with another studio?
