Platinum Games Apologizes For Scalebound’s Cancellation

So sad, this week we heard rumors that Scalebound seemed to be in trouble due to the alignment and direction Hideki Kamiya and Microsoft had. Well the rumors are true. Microsoft has confirmed it is pulling the plug. Now Platinum Games and Scalebound director Hideki Kamiya have issued comments regarding the cancellation.

Here is the statement from Platinum Games President and CEO Kenichi Sato:

Regarding the Cancellation of Scalebound

We’re sorry to say that on January 9, 2017, Microsoft Studios announced the cancellation of Scalebound. We are very disappointed things ended up this way, especially since we know many of our fans were looking forward to this game as much as we were.

Going forward, we will strive to continue delivering high-quality games to you, starting with NieR:Automata in March, and including products like GRANBLUE FANTASY Project Re:Link and LOST ORDER in the future.

We will keep working hard to meet your expectations and we look forward to your continued support!

President and CEO

Kenichi Sato

 

Who knows if Hideki Kamiya will resurface Scalebound in the future or if this is it, but I’ll guess we’ll have to just wait and see.
