Bayonetta 3 Ideas Progressing, But Nothing Confirmed Yet

"It's actually something I've been thinking a lot about."


What might Platinum Games make after the Xbox One/PC exclusive Scalebound? In an interview with Polygon, designer Hideki Kamiya said he has a plan for Bayonetta 3, though it's not confirmed at this stage if that will indeed be the project the developer works on next.

Asked if he might think about making a third Bayonetta game after Scalebound comes out in 2017, Kamiya responded, "To answer your question straightly, yes.

"It's actually something I've been thinking a lot about. We've talked a lot about it internally at the company and I've written some outlines for what the game would be. And I feel really confident it would be cool if we got the chance to make it."

Kamiya stressed that, although he has some ideas for the next game in the Bayonetta series, right now Platinum is only "looking at opportunities."

"If that opportunity ever came up to make Bayonetta 3, that would be really, really cool," he said.

The latest Bayonetta game, 2014's Wii U-exclusive Bayonetta 2, was well received; GameSpot gave it a 10/10. The 2009 original was directed by Kamiya, though the sequel was not, Polygon said. Whether or not he would direct a third game remains to be seen.
