Microsoft has issued a statement regarding the canned Scalebound from Platinum Games which was to be an Xbox/PC exclusive title for this year. Last year Fable Legends was also canned. It seems there’s a possible drop in demand for multiplayer fantasy games although Sea of Thieves is still on the cards for this year. Don’t worry though as Microsoft still have some other titles up their sleeves alongside the release of the Xbox One Scorpio console such as Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2.
“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.
