We do not know if Hideki Kamiya w as serious or if he simply came up during a streaming in which he is seen holding a drink, but the Japanese creative was encouraged to say live that would you like to retake Scalebound
Everything seemed too pretty and the game looked spectacular every time it showed, but his innumerable delays and the silence that reigned for quite some time pointed to his cancellation. The fateful news came true in 2017. 3 years later there are many fans who continue to ask Platinum to resume the project, a project that almost has a hard time disappearing due to the mood in which the team was after the cancellation.
You will never know exactly what happened between Platinum and Xbox, if the views of each party were contradicted and the project eventually collapsed. What is true is that the IP of Scalebound belongs to Microsoft

In any case, Platinum Games still has projects to announce and who knows if this "request" is a small teaser that Scalebound could come back to life, with Platinum at the controls and a better understanding between the two parties.
