Microsoft apparently has no plans to revive Scalebound, despite rumors

However, it seems that the game is not yet dead and Microsoft still intends to develop a Scalebound game and the company has renewed the rights to the IP.

Whatever is the case, Microsoft seems to have not given up on the IP completely. More like, they can revisit the IP.

Earlier today, we reported that Microsoft had renewed the trademark for Scalebound, the action RPG that had been under development by Platinum Games, exclusively for the PC and Xbox One, before its high profile cancellation earlier this year that created an enormous blowback and backlash.

The game was announced to be cancelled at the beginning of 2017 and the reasons were said to be that the developer had hit a number of roadblocks in building the game.

A trademark filing is of course far from proof that Microsoft is actively doing anything with the property.

While nothing has been confirmed by Microsoft, even more hype came from news on twitter. Despite the footage we had seen from the game looking very promising, ultimately things just weren't coming together the way they had hoped. Either way, Platinum Games is not involved and we must take the idea of a "reboot" with a grain of salt.

Platinum Games' RPG actioner had been scheduled to launch as a Play Anywhere title for Xbox One and Windows 10, but it was eventually decided that the game should be canned. Comment down below. And if any new reports do come our way, you can be sure we'll keep you updated.
