For lidt over en uge siden kunne Scalebound-instruktør, Hideki Kamiya, slå fast overfor adskillige medier, at han virkelig ønsker at genoplive Scalebound, og at Platinum ville gå i gang med det samme hvis Microsoft ønskede at genstarte samarbejdet.
Branchen er ikke på den måde vant til så direkte tale, så nogle mente at han overdrev med vilje for komisk effekt, men det lader ikke til at være tilfældet. I en opfølgende besked til VGC slår Kamiya fast, at han virkelig er seriøs omkring sit forslag:
"I think it's really strange because, to be honest, I've been in a lot of interviews since the project ended and I feel like I've said many times that I'd love to be able to bring it back. Having gotten somewhere with it, as a creator I'd like to see it to the end. And I hear fans saying they really want to play that game, which is too bad, and I want to give that to them when I hear that."
"That's something that I thought I'd been saying, or I'd been trying to say for years now. I've said it in interviews before and gotten no reaction, but now finally I got a big reaction, and I was glad to see that. But no, it's not a joke: I'm totally serious about it, yeah."
Vi aner dog ikke om Microsoft er interesserede i at genoplive projektet, når nu deres antal af interne studier er vokset så gevaldigt.
