PlatinumGames, Hideki Kamiya Give Statements on Scalebound’s Cancellation

Developer PlatinumGames has given an official statement surrounding the surprise cancellation of Scalebound earlier this week. President and CEO Kenichi Sato gave his apologies to the fans, but specific reasons as to why the Microsoft-exclusive was canned are still unknown.

“We are very disappointed things ended up this way, especially since we know many of our fans were looking forward to this game as much as we were,” Sato wrote.

“Going forward, we will strive to continue delivering high-quality games to you, starting with NieR:Automata in March, and including products like GRANBLUE FANTASY Project Re:Link and LOST ORDER in the future.”

“We will keep working hard to meet your expectations and we look forward to your continued support,” he finished.

Game director Hideki Kamiya took to Twitter too, with this to say:

We’ll keep you updated as more details surrounding the game’s cancellation become available.

Still what the f**k happened? This was an MS flagship, and they let him burn down? Hmmm...

How do you know he didn't have something to do with it being cancelled? Everybody is saying it's all Microsoft's fault, but the fact is nobody knows for sure the reasons why it was cancelled except for them and Platinum. I'll reserve my hugs until the truth comes out.

MS Flagship? This was their once a generation "hey look we care about Japanese games!". Those games haven't had a fantastic track record.

Rats, I was hoping the statement would read: "We have cancelled Scalebound because we are just way too busy making another Vanquish". Alas

Microsoft and Japanese devs never work well together. Would love to have been a fly on the wall to see all the commotion between the two.

I never said Microsoft was to blame, or that Kamiya wasn't? I was purely just talking about how sad his tweets sound.
