Bayonetta 2.

Quote:
Sega has cancelled development on Bayonetta 2, according to a new report.

A source told Spong that Sega halted development on the Platinum-created sequel following an internal restructure.

Apparently the game included a new character, someone who was a member of the US military.

Last month Sega announced a number of games had been cancelled, but didn't specify which ones. Was Bayonetta 2, which has never been announced, one of them? Sega declined to comment on the story.

Sega has published each of Platinum's games: MadWorld, Infinite Space, Bayonetta and Vanquish, and retains the IP for each. It will publish Platinum's Anarchy Reigns this year, a game in which Bayonetta makes a guest appearance.

In October 2010, ahead of the release of Vanquish, Platinum chief Atsushi Inaba told Eurogamer in an interview the Japanese developer "would love" to make Bayonetta 2 and would do so "when the time is right".

Speculation was first sparked by a tweet from designer Hideki Kamiya. "Will there be a Bayonetta 2?" a fan asked the Devil May Cry director on Twitter. "I believe so," he replied.

"She'll be back if you believe so," he said to another follower.

"There is no concrete plan or schedule that we can talk about," Inaba told Eurogamer. "It's not like Kamiya said, 'Okay, we're going to make this.

"But Bayonetta is definitely a special IP for us. We loved creating that game. We think it was a really good game. We would love to make a sequel to it when the time is right. That's all we can say."
A damn shame if it's true.

My arse is better than hers. I'll send you nudes and you can decide for yourself.

And Bayonetta was an awesome game, it was one of those new IPs I played and was blown away by how much fun it was. I'm surprised they're not continuing it, silly SEGA! Here's hoping we might get a Bayonetta game under a different name!

Without DMC2 there wouldn't have been a DMC3 the best in the series IMO a small price to pay.
