UPDATE: Microsoft has told VideoGamer.com that Lords of the Fallen is "not part of the Ultimate Game Sale" - despite the game being reduced to £7.50 yesterday and developer Deck 13 stating that it was "supposed to be in there".

"'Lord of the Fallen' on Xbox One is not part of the Ultimate Game Sale Feb. 17 - 23," a Microsoft representative said in a statement provided to us this afternoon. "Please visit http://www.xbox.com/en-US/promotions/sales/ultimate-game-sale-xbox-one-deals for the full list of titles available through this week's promotion."

VideoGamer.com has asked the platform holder for further clarification.

ORIGINAL STORY: Lords of the Fallen "was supposed to be" featured in this week's Xbox Ultimate Games Sale, developer Deck 13 has confirmed after the title mysteriously disappeared from the sale last night.

The action-RPG was reduced to just £7.50 at the launch of yesterday's sale, but was pulled just hours after being discounted, returning to its usual £49.99 selling price.

"Regarding the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale. It was suposed [sic] to be in there," Deck 13 tweeted this morning. "It also seems it was for a few hours and then got pulled. No info yet!"

VideoGamer.com has contacted Microsoft to find out whether the game will return to its discounted price.

The Xbox Ultimate Games Sale launched on Xbox One and Xbox 360 yesterday, offering huge discounts on games like Kinect Sports Rivals, Sniper Elite 3, Watch Dogs and more.

The sale is due to run until next Monday, February 23.
