Was to include new character, says source.

Bayonetta 2, which has never been officially announced by Sega, was reportedly in pre-production at Platinum Games, but cancelled, according to Spong sources “familiar with the situation.”

The game was said to include a new character – a member of the U.S. military. Spong cites Sega’s recent restructuring as possible reason for the cancellation.

    If true, my day has been ruined ;_;

  • zerolegacy0

    Well this sucks. Hopefully it’s not true.

  • Genesis

    I refuse to believe this :( I truly doubt that Kamiya-San would can Bayonetta 2 (If he’s working on it)

  • Zero

    No!!! Must not believe…

    I will proceed to summon my inner child…

        (Step 2 lol)

  • RoboShinKen

    I don’t believe it.

    A game with such reputation? That would be like the new GoW being cancelled.

    Crying SO HARD right now my feet are soaked:(

  • Skelter

    I see what you did there Platinum hehehe…………………..actually, no I didn’t…wtf is this?!

  • Genesis

    People shouldn’t get worked up because Kamiya-San didn’t even announce a sequel yet. He did say that if the fans wanted to see her again, they will. Besides, he’s working on a game now and it could be a new ip or Bayonetta. “A member of the U.S. military” like really?! Lol so everyone should relax :)

    • NCloud

      You are forgetting one major detail though. The IP doesn’t belong to Platinum Games, it belongs to SEGA. So if they cancel the sequel nothing Platinum games can do about it.

      • Genesis

        @NCloud: Well that’s pretty obvious…My point was that the game wasn’t even announced in the first place..The PG reps are trolling on twitter making fun of the rumor. So people are getting worked up for “nada”

    “The game was said to include a new character – a member of the U.S. military.”


    Well, I’m really sad about it, but it’s still a rumour, so I’ll choose to treat it as such and don’t give it too much credit :)

  • vertical09

    Damn. Guess i gotta replay bayonetta again to kill off some of this disappointment >_>

  • stealth20k

    This is a baseless rumor

    The game was not cancelled, hell we dont even know if it was real……..

  • DjangoRaijin

    Rumors a pain in your ass since elementary didn’t believe them then won’t believe it now.

  • RyoonZ

    I’m not going to believe this!!!

  • Kobracon

    I remember reading a long time ago that Kamiya had no interest in making a sequel. Thus, this does surprise me. I would LOVE a new Bayonetta but if Kamiya isn’t involved in the sequel or wants nothing to do with it, I’ll accept not getting a sequel lest we get another DMC2 (which DOESN’T EXIST! NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY!)

    And hey, at least we’ll see her again in Anarchy Reigns ^_^

    I’m going to pretend I didn’t read this.
