Scott Pilgrim vs. The World will still get its long-awaited downloadable expansion, as despite some statements from Ubisoft customer support representatives that the add-on has been canceled, the creator of the Scott Pilgrim franchise has dismissed any rumors concerning the DLC's termination.Scott Pilgrim vs. The World isn't just a successful comic book series or movie, as Ubisoft released a special adaptation back in 2010 in the form of a retro-themed beat-em up game with pixelated graphics and a distinct old-school feel.
Since then, the French company promised that it was going to support it and release a special downloadable expansion this summer, which added a brand new character to the game, in the form of Wallace Wells.
The DLC was supposed to appear earlier this summer, but Ubisoft quickly pushed it back to fall. After entering winter, some fans of the game started asking Ubisoft customer support representatives if the DLC was still coming.
According to their replies, the DLC has apparently been canceled due to lack of interest from fans.
"I am afraid that the DLC content has been canceled and is not going to be released. I am sorry for the inconvenience," one email read, via Hardcore Gamer.
Another customer support agent offered more details, saying that the lack in interest led to the termination of the DLC.
"I can honestly say that the content has been canceled at this time, due to a lack of interest in the product. I am sorry for the inconvenience."
However, Scott Pilgrim creator Brian Lee O'Malley took to Twitter and denied these statements, saying that the DLC for the game is still coming at a certain point in time.
"There’s a rumor going around that the Scott Pilgrim video game DLC from Ubisoft has been canceled. Status: FALSE," he said.
As of yet, Ubisoft itself hasn't released an official statement about the fate of the new DLC for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
