It seems like it’s been a while since Platinum and Microsoft announced their Xbox One exclusive, Scalebound. It debuted at E3 in 2014, so next summer will mark a decade since then.

Consequently, this doesn’t guarantee a return for the troubled RPG, so take the news lightly until an official announcement. Going off the premise, the talks are positive, and the project resumes development.
