Xbox Head Phil Spencer has now dashed pretty much all hope of Scalebound being revived.

Xbox Head Shatters Hope of A Scalebound Revival

Scalebound the Action-RPG which was cancelled over three years ago, but still has many hoping for a revival. Today however, the head of Xbox Phil Spencer has put a damper on these hopes when he appeared on IGN’s Unlocked latest episode speaking about the project:

We’re not working on it. I’m not at Platinum today, but I’m almost positive they’re not working on it. It’s something we all moved past.

It’s not a moment that I see as a high point for me in my role, having to cancel a game that we had talked about for years. But yeah, for the people out there who are kind of thinking that maybe there’s something still in the works, there’s not.

While not working at Platinum now, he does seem to have some inside knowledge of what is going on with current projects, and Scalebound doesn’t seem to be one of them or on their future list of games.

Scalebound introduced an interesting bond between main character Drew and an AI dragon called Thuban. The two are linked not only in friendship, but would share a health bar. If one dies, so does the other.

In February PlatinumGames’ Atsushi Inaba also talked about Scalebound, saying it wasn’t up to them if they were to continue working on it, and the ball was in Microsoft’s court. For now Platinum are working on another combat action RPG called Babylon’s Fall, along with other projects Bayonetta 3 and The Wonderful 101.
