This one will hurt some folks; a Bayonetta sequel was apparently in the works prior to Sega’s internal restructuring.
Following the reshuffle to fight off financial hardships, a number of projects were canned, Bayonetta 2 apparently among them, rumors originating from Spong say.
The sequel, which reportedly reached the pre-production phases, was to have a new lead, a member of the US military.
The first game’s playable character will live on in Platinum’s upcoming Anarchy Reigns, where she’ll be a playable character.
Update: Hope remains; a translated tweet from creator Hideki Kamiya apparently says to keep an eye on next week’s gaming magazines. Could it really be?
