Ever since the announcement of Bayonetta 3 at The Game Awards 2017, fans have been clamoring for an update on the game's development. No news has been shared since then, and some are concerned that the release may still be a long ways away.
In an interview with VGC, PlatinumGames director Hideki Kamiya gave some advice on where our minds should be at while we wait for official news to come out. Although an update for Bayonetta 3 is expected by the end of 2021, he suggests that since "it's driving fans crazy," they should "reset and forget about Bayonetta 3." Check out his exact comments from the TGC interview below, and click over to their article for more interesting PlatinumGames related tidbits and info.
VGC: Kamiya, here’s the inevitable Bayonetta 3 question: You were recently quoted as saying you’d like to provide a public update on the game this year. Is that right?
Kamiya: "It’s not really our position to say, but… it’s January. We’ve got to have something come out, right? I guess it’s safe to expect that something will come out. There’s still a lot of the year left is what I’m saying."
VGC: By “update”, do you mean something more substantial than another CGI logo?
Kamiya: "(Laughs) I understand it’s driving the fans crazy! In light of that, my suggestion would be that maybe we should all reset and forget about Bayonetta 3. Then when something finally does happen, it will be a nice surprise, won’t it?"
