Update: Scott Pilgrim online multiplayer DLC NOT canceled

Posted on December 20, 2012 - 1:01pm by ThatPunkAdam

Update: According to a Tweet from Scott Pilgrim creator Brian O'Malley this rumor is not true."There’s a rumor going around that the Scott Pilgrim video game DLC from Ubisoft has been cancelled. Status: FALSE". So it looks to be back on, though Ubisoft has yet to officially respond to the rumor. Anyone still pining for this?

After receiving Knives Chao in the last DLC update, fans couldn't wait for the retro beat em' up's next DLC pack, which was set to arrive this fall and include Scott's roommate Wallace Wells, as well as online multiplayer. However, it looks as though that might not be happening anytime soon.

According to Hardcore Gamer, publisher/developer Ubisoft sent one fan the following message after asking for when the DLC will be released...

"I am afraid that the DLC content has been canceled and is not going to be released. I am sorry for the inconvenience."
Unfortunately, more fans received similar messages from Ubisoft canceling the additional content. One of the more notable messages were...
"I can honestly say that the content has been canceled at this time due to the lack of interest in the product. I am sorry for the inconvenience."
For the time being, it looks like players will have to stick to the game's four main characters and visit each other's houses if they want to play multiplayer, as no further DLC looks to be planned. What do you think g1s? Were you looking forward to this DLC pack? Or do you agree there was a lack of interest? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
