Scalebound Director “Took Time Off For Mental Health” – Insider

Reputed insider notes that Hideki Kamiya isn't doing well.

Posted By | On 10th, Jan. 2017

Platinum Games’ Scalebound being cancelled is the biggest news of the day and why not? The action RPG was showcased at E3 2016 and was pegged to release last year before being delayed to 2017. When reports began to surface about its trouble development, Microsoft finally confirmed that it had indeed been cancelled.

None of this is good news, especially for members of Platinum Games who have had a taxing time. Director Hideki Kamiya is especially having trouble – as industry insider shinobi602 on NeoGAF, Kamiya “took time off for his mental health.” Again, take things with a grain of salt but it wouldn’t be surprising considering the sudden announcement of this cancellation.

Scalebound was in development for Xbox One and PC. It was to take place in an open world with a controllable dragon, co-op play, Devil May Cry-like hack and slash combat and much more. Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently said that despite the cancellation being a difficult decision, it would be better for gamers in the long run.
