Well according to a report from NintendoInsider it might be making a comeback however as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. The RPG was in development as an Xbox One exclusive by Platinum Games and was abruptly canceled by Microsoft back in 2017 to a fanbase itching for the release of Scalebound.
Microsoft released a statement about why they clipped Scalebounds wings in 2017:
“After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound,” a representative wrote at the time. “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.”
Now that Crackdown 3, Halo Wars 2, State of Decay 2 and Sea of Thieves have been released you would think Microsoft and the Xbox team would revive this dragon and bring it to Xbox? Well apparently they have other ideas or maybe this is a way for Phil Spencer and co to announce cross-play with Nintendo for the RPG?
In the original concept for Scalebound, you were to play as Drew, who, while exploring the dangerous world of Draconis, is bonded to the fearsome and noble dragon, Thuban – the last of his kind. Thrown together by fate, they must defeat the enemies that threaten their world.
We are excited just to play it, no matter what console, so bring it on!
