Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition is coming after a long wait by dedicated fans, but there's some interesting news regarding the creator of Scott Pilgrim, as he apparently has made no money from the game.

Originally, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game was released in 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. It was a critical hit with fans and critics alike, but the sales certainly didn't reflect that fact, leading to it eventually being delisted in 2014. 

Bryan Lee O'Malley, the creator of Scott Pilgrim, has been supporting a re-release for years, stating that if it were ever to be re-released, he would be supporting it as a fan and nothing more. Last month, he tweeted that it would be "Messed Up" for Ubisoft to re-release the game without having the original team involved, so what did Ubisoft do? 

Re-release without him and the rest of the team, of course.

 
 

According to Kotaku, apparently he was supposed to be kept in the loop. However, a "communications breakdown" from Universal meant that he was as in the dark as everyone else, even though the game had been in development for some time. Very strange, almost as strange as his admission that he makes no money from the game, despite being its creator. Still, O'Malley was thankful, thanking the fans "who never shut up about the Scott Pilgrim game". He also says they can now let him get some sleep.

If you're curious about Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game Complete Edition, be sure to check it out on Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One in the near future.
