Just as the rumors indicated a few hours ago Scalebound , the draft Platinum Games for Xbox One and Windows 10 was canceled.
This was confirmed by Microsoft in a statement sent to several places: “After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios made the decision to stop production of Scalebound . We are working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games for our fans, among which are Halo Wars 2 , Crackdown 3 , State of Decay 2 , Sea of Thieves and other great experiences. ”
When questioned by IGN about who will retain the IP, a spokesman for Microsoft said that they do not give details on the agreements they have with their partners. On the other hand, he declined to comment whether Microsoft will again collaborate with Platinum Games on another project.
Thus, it is unknown whether this is the end of Scalebound or have the possibility to revive the support of another distributor.
