PlatinumGames ‘could revive’ Scalebound
PlatinumGames' Xbox-exclusive Scalebound was cancelled in 2017, but it seems like the game could still have a future.
Atsushi Inaba and Hideki Kamiya told IGN Japan that they still believe in the game, and that they would like to talk to Microsoft about reviving the project.
- Single and multiplayer action RPG
- Directed by Hideki Kamiya, published by Microsoft Studios
- Less focused on all-out action than the studio's previous games
Drew & drake: Scalebound was a third-person action RPG in development between 2013 and 2017, starring a hero named Drew and his dragon companion Thuban. The IP belongs to Microsoft, but presumably, the code, art, and other work sits somewhere on PlatinumGames' company network.
Lacked skills: In another interview with Cutscenes, Hideki Kamiya apologised for the project being cancelled, saying the team didn't have the necessary experience to deliver an online game of that scale.
