There will be no Bayonetta 3 – Series to End With Bayonetta 2!

By   /   3 years ago

Platinum Games is famous for games like Vanquish, Anarchy Reigns & Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. In all of these there is one thing common; the developer doesn’t like to try its luck on a title twice.

Bayonetta 2 is going to be the first sequel that Platinum Games is going to develop for any game that they have originally built, but it goes no further than that. Hideki Kamiya says Bayonetta 2 is going to be the end of the series.

For what it’s worth, the game wasn’t actually a series as it has seen just one game previously – the second game in the franchise being announced as the last even before it hits the market.

Nevertheless, 4Games have interviewed Hideki Kamiya the game designer and was asked how he plans to deal with the varying demands from the Bayonetta fans. Kamiya’s reply though answered the question but also broke news that wasn’t asked for directly in the question.

Kamiya responded by discussing how launching a new franchise gives you a rally of ideas that you can work on and that some of those ideas get left behind in the first episode, only to be used in the sequels. He emphasized that after the first sequel; usually not many ideas are left in the bucket to create a good third game which then is usually developed out of fan demand only. That is why he said “I don’t really see a Bayonetta 3 happening in the future.”

Probably to emphasize on the fact that he will soon come up with another worthy idea, he added that “I am fortunate that I am able to create many games from scratch.”

The Hack and Slash Action game was initially developed for the mainstream platforms; Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and it is going to be a massive shift when Bayonetta 2 launches as a Wii U exclusive. I wonder how well can the sequel tread when all the people who have become fond of this game are Xbox or PS users – knowing that neither Xbox users nor the PlayStation users would want to substitute their consoles with anything.

Bayonetta was originally released in 2009 and the news of Bayonetta 2 has been afloat since September 2012 but the exact release date of the game has not been announced, all we know is that the game will come out in 2014.

We’ll hit back when a release date is confirmed.
