Platinum Games says Bayonetta 3 is "going great," and Project G.G. has "started moving"

Could 2021 be the year?

Famitsu magazine spoke to a wide range of developers to hear their comments on upcoming projects and plans for 2021. When it got to Platinum Games, none other than Hideki Kamiya shared an update for not one, but two different Switch games. You can see what he had to say below, courtesy of a Gematsu translation.

“First off, many people are worried about Bayonetta 3 considering there hasn’t been any new information since its announcement, but verifications of new systems have been going great and development is going very well, so please wait with peace of mind. (This is a copy of my 2020 comment.) Also Project G.G. (title tentative) has finally started moving, so please look forward to it.”

Voice actress for Jeanne confirms her voice work on Bayonetta 3 hasn't yet begun

Everything is fine, right?

Platinum has continuously attempted to put fan's minds and hearts at ease again and again that development on Bayonetta 3 is going smoothy. The title was originally announced almost 3 years ago at The Game Awards 2017, and concerns continue to ramp up for the anticipated third installment.

Earlier this week, voice actress Grey DeLisle-Griffin replied to a tweet, insinuating that she has yet to begin voice work for Jeanne (a lead character in the Bayonetta franchise). While voice work is usually the last thing to be completed in the process of game development, this still definitely isn't the most exciting information. Hopefully some official news will be announced in the near future!
