Scalebound Cancellation Is "Better for Xbox Gamers," Says Phil Spencer
 

 
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has commented on the cancellation of Scalebound, the Xbox One and PC-exclusive action title developed by Platinum Games.

Posting on Twitter, Spencer said the decision was "difficult" but added he believes it's better for Xbox fans in the long run. Continuing, he expressed confidence in the games Microsoft has lined up for 2017.




"After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound," a spokesperson said. "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."

In the time since the announcement, videos of Scalebound have been removed or become inaccessible from the official Xbox YouTube channel. Prior to this the Scalebound page on Xbox.com had been removed from the website; it now redirects to the site's homepage.

Development on Scalebound, an action-RPG featuring dragons and online co-op, was led by Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya. Platinum has not discussed whether development of the game could continue separate from its partnership with Microsoft.

Platinum Games' next release is Nier: Automata, which launches for PS4 on March 7 and then on PC later in 2017. A demo for the game is available now.

This sh*t pissed me off but honestly i had no interest in it

What pisses me off is MS cant get any original IPs off the ground,even the good/great ones end up failing IE Sunset Overdrive.

The thing is they said high ranking members of the development team all took off for a month near the end of 2016 and Kamiya has been getting treatment apparently for mental health issues that's why he hasn't been on twitter for the past 2 weeks so this one isn't all on MS.

How does canceling an exclusive "better" for the gamer? He would have been better off not saying anything at all.

I have a theory on that, I could be totally wrong so don't beat me up too bad... But the average Xbox gamer, especially the younger ones, are overly worried about multi-player. I'm glad to see the single player experience seeing a resurgence.

Online MP is just a plus to me, it's not necessary to be connected to the web like that 24/7. Give me a real storyline along with some dope game play and I'm good.

Online multiplayer is what keeps the game going,I'm fine with a good single player but they'll never get full price from me with that.

Well unless Sony is buying it from MS I doubt it.

Not to me, that sh*t is boring after a while. I don't like most people, so I play games to escape the same way you can in a book.

Cool but I never said anything about co-op or mp when it came to this game in particular.

Phil speaking nothing but facts.. why burn money on a dev that can't meet their commitments.. I can't think of a AAA game in the last 5 years that has come out of a japanese developer that wasn't either delayed or cancelled (MGS5, ff15 etc).. they need to get their sh*t together over there..
