/// Tennis World Tour Announced , Developed by Breakpoint Studio!
Bigben and Breakpoint are pleased to announce Tennis World Tour, the new standard for tennis games, due for release in 2018 on consoles and PC.
In order to make the best possible game and match players’ expectations, the studio has brought in an experienced team which has worked on the “Top Spin” license.
Pierre André, Game Designer on Tennis World Tour and former Producer on “Top Spin 4”: “For years we’ve wanted to create a new tennis game, a spiritual successor to “Top Spin 4″. Technical evolutions now mean we can create the ultra-realistic simulation that we’ve been dreaming of.”
Benoît Clerc, Director of Video Games at Bigben: “We are proud to give to all tennis fans a game worthy of their enthusiasm. The level of quality, wealth of content and game mechanics will ensure Tennis World Tour is one of the best sport simulations on the market.”
This desire to provide a faithful tennis simulation translates into demanding gameplay during rally, a wide range of playing styles and a strategic preparation that influences the course of each match.
In addition to that, Tennis World Tour lets you experience the career of a professional: more than 30 playable tennis stars including Roger Federer, Gaël Monfils, Angelique Kerber, Garbiñe Muguruza and many more.

/// Scalebound Trademark Renewed by Microsoft, Sparks Rumors of a Remake!
After four years in development, the cancellation was met with criticism from fans leading Xbox’s Phil Spencer to say, “I know we have to take risks, I realize right now probably sounds hollow but I agree.”
SomosXbox reported that the Scalebound rights have been renewed.
The Justia Trademarks site logs movements on trademarks and this month Microsoft filed to extend the trademark for a second time.
Admittedly it’s not something to get too worked up about, but we can always dream that they’ve had a change of heart in the wake of the cancellation announcement.
Rumours are already flying around on Twitter, with one user claiming to have the inside scoop, saying, “Development is resumed, led by and entrusted to an important ‘close’ MS team,” but they haven’t cited any source so don’t put too much stock in the notion of a remake from the ground up just yet.
