One of Xbox One’s biggest upcoming games may have been quietly canceled by Microsoft.
Scalebound comes from Platinum Games and acclaimed director Hideki Kamiya, famous for Bayonetta. Originally revealed at E3 2014, the game was shown off at multiple subsequent conferences and was expected to hit Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms later this year.
Multiple sources are reporting that the game’s troubled development has led to its cancellation. There has been no official word regarding the game on Microsoft’s part, but it was absent from a recent blog post detailing upcoming Xbox One games and features.
Scalebound was to feature four-player simultaneous co-op, and it centered around the relationship between players and dragons. You can revisit some recent gameplay footage below.
