Microsoft recently filed for an extended Trademark on Scalebound. I’m guessing more than likely they see something from the game. This was only found out after a rumor that Platinum games is no longer working on the game but Scalebound has been put back into development by some secret dev team close to Microsoft.
Insider Report: Do you remember Scalebound? Development is resumed, led by and entrusted to an important “close” MS team. Info soon!

Hopefully, we all can see a day when Scalebound comes out. Who knows we might even see some news of it at E3 next month.
