There Drew is bonded to a fearsome and noble dragon, Thuban, the last of his kind. These two lone-wolf heroes thrown together by fate must learn to fight as one to defeat the powerful enemies that threaten Draconis, Earth and a vast universe of parallel worlds.
Announced in 2014, delayed until 2017, it seems Microsoft has parted ways with developer Platinum Games and has canceled further development on Scalebound.
Whether or not the IP belong to Microsoft or Platinum Games remains unknown, which could mean the game resurfaces at some point via another developer/publisher.
Here's the official statement:
"After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound.
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."
