It’s always a sad day to see a game that you were looking forward to get canceled. Sadly, Platinum Games’ Scalebound, previously announced exclusively for Xbox One and PC has been the latest to fall victim to this fate. Microsoft today confirmed:

“After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound,” a Microsoft spokesperson said in a statement to Polygon. “We’re working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves and other great experiences.”

Scalebound genuinely looked interesting, and we had seen gameplay as recently as E3 2016. It’s strange and somewhat disheartening for Xbox One owners, and I hope we see hints of Scalebound’s mechanics in the future.
