Searching Xbox.com for Scalebound still brought up results at time of writing, however the hyperlinks themselves go nowhere. Expect the search to attract clean as soon as Bing refreshes its index.
The sudden disappearance follows on from Microsoft’s affirmation that Scalebound has been cancelled. You can nonetheless view Scalebound supplies on Platinum Games web sites in addition to any variety of third-party hosts, do you have to want to mourn.

Of these, three have since been cancelled (Phantom Dust, Fable Legends and Scalebound) and one was closed (Project Spark).
To be honest, Forza Horizon 2, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Halo 5: Guardians, Dance Central: Spotlight and Ori and the Blind Forest made it to launch, and so did Project Spark albeit quickly, so the ratio of printed to cancelled is 2:1.
