Scalebound Officially Cancelled by Microsoft

The Xbox One/PC exclusive is no more.

Scalebound

Platinum Games’ Scalebound, in development for Xbox One and PC, has officially been cancelled by Microsoft. This is following observations that the game had been removed from Xbox.com which now simply redirects to the home page.

The publisher announced that, “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.”

Scalebound was slated to release sometime in 2016 but was subsequently delayed to 2017 to allow for more polish. It hasn’t had a new release date since then. Considering delays for other titles like Crackdown 3 and Halo Wars 2, this didn’t appear all that odd though rumours indicate that trouble has been brewing for a while.

What are your thoughts on Scalebound being cancelled? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned.

      They thought people wanted to watch TV and boy band Kinect stuff.

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. Boy band Kinect stuff. Hilariousness!

  • crazy_black_man-

    So where is that list of Xbox One exclusives that everyone is always pulling out of their dooty hole again?
    Cross another “almost was a complete failure of a Xbox One game” off that list. What’s next on the list of lies? Could it be Crackdown and it’s overly hyped cloud technology? Could it be that one silly 1950s cartoon looking game that all the X-kids have already been waiting way too damn long for?

    The hilariousness of Xbox One ownership continues.

    Outbound

  • Luke Skywalker

    well that’s not good. I was looking forward to that game. hopefully they have something in suffice at E3

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      More live TV features and Kinect stuff, who needs games right.

    • Michael

      Still better than sony’s. Cancelled games won’t stop the curb stomping scorpio will give ps4 pro this e3.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      Lets see who wins the generation in sales

    • bewareofZ

      A console will only be successful with software to back it up.
      Scorpio has none. Just upscaled versions of yawn Halo 6 and Forza 7.

    • Luke Skywalker

      I’m actually sick of your nonsense. If you can’t reply with or comment something constructive then i will regard you as a troll and 1) block you or 2) block you. Choose your poison wisely.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      Block sounds good.

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Well, they better have something sooner since all of its exclusives (save for forza) underperformed last year and the ones announced for this year are not so many and are far from being aaa monster hits.

    • Luke Skywalker

      E3 is the best place to announce new games because it offers the biggest exposure so announcing before that at this point would just be total waste

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Except that it really needs games now! A game announced on E3 almost never gets released the same year.

      Without scalebound and Crackdown 3 in trouble The 2017 x1 lineup is almost empty.

    • Luke Skywalker

      True, most games announced at E3 almost never gets released in the same year but they’ve done it before. However, I don’t think any game they announce this year will be in release condition for this year so why waste the publicity in announcing early. I mean what would they plan to gain announcing now than when all eyes are pointed on them at E3?

    • QUIMICOMORTAL

      Well, you may be right! But the thing is, that they need to communicate that they have more games! Even if they don’t release them this year, announce them and don’t give a release date.

      What will they do this 1st 6 months? Pretend like sea of thieves can be the holiday game? Or that Gigantic will be Scorpio’s killer app?

  • Troy Marcel

    wonder what went wrong?

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      The embarrassment over another downgrade , even with DX12, a salty 720p sub 30fps in 2017 is just too pathetic to damage control again like Quantum Break.

    • Troy Marcel

      You are the pathetic one constantly whiney about Xbox LOL.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      Kinect supporter?

    • crazy_black_man-

      He wonders what went wrong. Crikey! The whole damn Xbox One console went wrong.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      LOL cool

    • Michael

      It’s was too much like no man’s sky…lol

    • Tomaterrrx

      Apparently it was due to the game engines problems and several deadlines for the development of the game not being met. In all honesty if you look at Platinum Games past few games last year they haven’t been doing well at all.

  • Riggybro

    My XB1/ ♏️ friends are seriously upset over this cancellation.. my PC friends.. didn’t even flinch.

    • crazy_black_man-

      They’re all threatening to boycott Scorpio over on Xbox One redditt.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      Scorpio is in trouble with its cost already,

      fun times

  • Mr Xrat

    Can’t wait to play this at 4K 60 on the beast fire Shitpio!

    Just as I predicted, a weak 2017 lineup becomes even weaker. Xgimps will have to make do with Phil Spencer firing another rancid load down their throats. Don’t forget to say thank you!

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL!!!

  • Eliezer Barreto

    Ps4 has more exclusives in 3 months than the entire year of xfail one lolllllll

  • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

    Thank you , as your very sensitive about your Kinect and TV features

    • crazy_black_man-

      LOL. “I’m actually sick of your nonsense”. I almost fell down laughing after reading that. Too funny.

    • Tactical Lag-fighting tips

      yep, he’s Sick of been reminded of the x-failure.

      PS, sorry 2 offend Luke “very sensitive” Skywalker

  • Dougdec92

    Xbox and exclusives, I was hoping that they could’ve built a fresher fantasy action IP from scale bound, something 3rd person with its premise to even complement the Scorpio , it is unfortunate though things like these happen and I hope MS has something brewing to replace such a loss cos their rival ain’t stopping, Sony’s exclusives may pop out late but they surely come
