Scalebound is one of the most highly awaited titles for Xbox One and PC, but perfunctory got canceled soon after an official statement in January 2017. Dropping off a well-liked game production might set off a displeasing environment in the gaming realm.

Howbeit, in an interview with IGN Japan, Platinum’s studio president and vice president Hideki Kamiya was asked if they would like to return to the sets of Scalebound for yet another time. To answer this million-dollar question. Both of them didn’t diverge it. Instead, they eventually expressed their interest in making Scalebound open conversation with Microsoft.  

Kamiya says he wants to do “Scalebound” all the time. Kamiya and I want to do it, not a beautiful feeling like “If I have a chance someday.” So I want to talk with Microsoft properly.” Platinum’s president Inaba said 

Kamiya, director of Scalebound, said, “There are quite a few deliverables, and Microsoft has no choice but to do something about it (laughs), Phil! Let’s do it together!” 

But in some sense, it appears to be a new myth with unparalleled treasure locked up underneath a grotto with doubled security guards to safeguard it. In other words, it won’t happen. It is just an idea to bring a game that could be a sensation of the industry.

Someone like Hideki Kamiya has a knack for developing a game like Devil May Cry; Resident Evil 2 should create another eternity game. What went wrong with Scalebound? Lest Kamiya Hype anyone, he decided to take sole blame for the Scalebound nullification. 

In 2019 Inaba told VGC in an interview that “Both sides failed,” and ultimately, the game “didn’t do all of the things that we needed to do as a developer.” After many rumors and speculation about the Scalebound development, Xbox CEO Phil Spencer killed the rumor by saying,” the Project was died,” no need to expect anything from Platinum Games.

Hopelessly, a fantasy gamer has been waiting for a while to see a playable character ride a dragon with a fine sword fitted on his back and some magical ability to kill enemies.
