Rumor: Xbox and Platinum Games Reportedly Working to Revive Scalebound

Revival of the highly anticipated game set to release in 2017

Recent rumors suggest that Platinum Games and Microsoft are working together to bring back the scrapped title in 2017, Scalebound, as stated by Shpeshal_Nick in the XboxEra podcast. No words about whether Scalebound's development will start entirely or pick up where it left off.

Shpeshal_Nick also said that the Scalebound is still in the early stages of development by Microsoft along with Platinum Games, a studio that delivered Bayonetta 3 for Switch users.

As the source didn't mention how Platinum Games is going to tackle the Scalebound project again, Hideki Kamiya (Platinum Games' Vice President) does reveal interest in developing the canceled title with Microsoft again in an interview with IGN Japan.

In conclusion, we suggest you take this rumor with a grain of salt, as the "revival" of the Scalebound project has not been confirmed by Microsoft and Platinum Games. With Xbox Era claiming the Scalebound project is still in its primitive stage, it is unlikely to hear anything official about it during the upcoming Developer Direct.
