Through some trademark technical sleuthing it’s been surmised that the trademark for the game is now active again as of May after being dormant since it was canceled last October. According to further reports the speculation is that development would begin again from scratch by an important close Microsoft team and not by Platinum Games.
Scalebound was one of our Top 20 RPGs of 2017 back when we thought it had life, as its unique dragon bonding and multiplayer gameplay seemed like it would be a great time with friends. It will be interesting to see if this has any lasting legs and whether the game is really getting a reprieve from development hell. If it is getting rebooted from scratch, this is probably not a title to expect anytime soon. We’ll be sure to update once there is official word.
