    Well you could still maybe present some evidence during your investigation. :ninja:

    If the xbox are having problem with third party stuff that isn't any good. Their E3 2016 failed to impress me (Sorry if i offend) but i mean just hope platinum is okay since they do hold like some awesome games.... even though i only played 2. :rolleyes:

    Those line up's are nothing new or original. My xbone has not been used at all in a year, so back to PC and PS4 it seems.

    Nintendo will buy platinum games & they will work on Nintendo ips. star fox zero was amazing but Nintendo themselves held that game back. no one really cared about scalebound btw....

    Not really surprised. I heard this was a "microsoft business decision" and we all know how well that worked out for Recore. Oh well, another nail in the Xbox brand name.

    I give up. This actually looked promising. What, did Microsoft not have enough to fund this game and it's devs?

    I'm genuinely interested to know the reason for the cancellation. I don't even own any Xbox systems but this was one game that would of made me jealous.

    guess i'm never getting an xbone.
    i was seriously considering getting one for this game and a few others too, but without scalebound the whole thing falls apart.

    I had this game in mind when I bought my X1, thankfully there is still a solid lineup for 2017 along with state of decay 2.

    They won't buy them because there is some weird curse with plastinum games. They make good games and they get high reviews but they are always commercial flops.

    Never thought the game looked any good personally and the protagonist looks like the most try-hard, focus group generated character going.

    Funny, because they use another PC and the one I use is the one I bought, so, c'est la vie *Shrug*

    I don't remember a moment when a company starts taking down videos of a cancelled game. If true, they are really going after this thing.

    I don't think there's away for Platinum to even take the IP with them. They could have at least finish it for the PC.

    Amazon doesn't charge for pre-orders until the game ships, so the order will just be cancelled.
