Posted on January 9, 2017
Today, I have a difficult announcement to share that affects our fans, Microsoft Studios team and a valued partner. After careful deliberation, we have come to the decision to end production for Scalebound. This decision was not made lightly.

At Microsoft, we remain committed to making Xbox and Windows 10 the best places to play games, and look forward to bringing "Halo Wars 2", "Crackdown 3", "State of Decay 2", "Sea of Thieves" and other great experiences to our fans."

No comment has been made on Hideki Kamiya's twitter account, and it's unsure whether the cancellation ended on good terms or not. Were you excited for Scalebound?

    I was really looking forward to this game!!! I even had the animated background and everything on my Computer. Oh well, I guess I will just focus all my obsession on to Sea of Thieves. =/

    Scalebound looked like a lot of fun too, such a shame. 🙁
