Rumours circulated the internet today that, Scalebound, the upcoming action-RPG title developed by Platinum Games, for Xbox One and PC due to launch sometime later this year was apparently cancelled…

Well, unfortunately, those rumours were confirmed a few short moments ago when Microsoft released this statement:

“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.”

Maybe Nintendo or PlayStation will jump in and pick up the pieces.
