I have a very strong feeling scalebounds cancelation is fake. It'll pop up as a scorpio title cause the game didn't seem like it would work well with the og xbox or one s. If anything it'd make the xbox look bad cause maybe the game required more hardware than what the og xbox one currently has in it.
Then MS will throw money at Japanese publishers to get jrpgs on the XBOX that were on the ps4 first and actually try and get western publishers like EA to develop games for the Scorpio first like how everything was developed for the 360 first then ps3. That way it'll really show off the graphics an capability of scorpio compared to the ps4 pro and make a shift in which console games will be developed on first.
Yikes - not even sure where to start with this.
On Scalebound, the answer is just plain, "no." The cancellation of Scalebound, along with games like Fable Legends, have been unfortunately symptomatic for Xbox this generation. Those games aren't coming back, at least not as exclusives, and not with MS as publisher. A company like Nordic or Gearbox might try to pick up the pieces, but cancelled games are a hard resale since the prior would-be publisher may in fact own certain code or parts of the game. In short, cancelled games are -- well, cancelled. For obvious reasons, the canceling publisher doesn't want another company to fly in and reap the awards of money it spent, so bottomline - unless it's MS publishing it, forget it.
And that gets to the second half of this comment. I'm eager to see what MS intends to do with Scorpio. Based on what we've heard, I suspect Scorpio is going to be priced from $500 to $700. That's pushing it (remember PS3?). Also, given MS' latest actions and statements, I'm less than convinced the company is much interested in writing checks for exclusives or even timed exclusives. Frankly, after Tomb Raider (rumor has it Square Enix privately regretted selling MS a timed exclusive), I'm not even sure developers/publishers are much interested in signing on, unless MS pays a boatload of cash.
It's a big question-mark for MS. At this point, we don't have much confidence coming from the company that it is really all-in on this Xbox thing. If Xbox is less about a console, and more about a platform (like Windows or PC), I don't see MS too eager to drop more money on it for exclusives.
We'll see what MS prices the console at. If Scorpio is priced low, it will be a sign MS is all-in, and is trying to compete with PS4 outright. On the other hand, if it is priced high ($600 or higher), that probably won't help raise Xbox user numbers, and that may be a sign the company isn't too interested in making the Xbox division a short-term loss leader to gain marketshare.
That may also mean Xbox could be up for sale soon ...
