Stop everything, as the boss and co-founder of PlatinumGamesHideki Kamiya, has confirmed that Bayonetta 4 it’s a game that the studio will be working on in the future, in fact, just last month the long-awaited Bayonetta 3 finally released on Nintendo Switch and based on the ending of the game, many fans assumed that it might be the end of the game. Serie.
But now, after some theories, these theories have come to light, now Hideki Kamiya took to social media and apparently revealed that Bayonetta 4 is a title that is already in development, this new message was shared via Twitter, where he informed fans that it is not planned to be released. Bayonetta 3 be the end of the franchise.
And while not much has been revealed about the next game in the series so far, Kamiya cheekily referred to a future installment as “Bayo 4” and indicated that this title was already being conceptualized with the end of the third installment. In mind, he also mentioned that he wanted to make it clear that Bayonetta 4 was always on the cards and was not something that was created as an “afterthought”.
“I didn’t think it was unexpected at all, but it seems that the end of [Bayonetta 3] it was not correctly transmitted to everyone, so I think that [Bayonetta 4] it will be an unexpected development for everyone,” Kamiya stated on Twitter. “After all, when Bayo 4 comes out, I’m sure there will be people saying, ‘You added it as an afterthought,’ so I’ll say it now.”
So now, the bigger question, would be when it will be released, but given the gap between Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta 3 ended up being over eight years, which suggests that the fourth entry could be quite some way off, though, on the other hand. For one, the fact that Kamiya is already referring to the next game in the series might tell us that it’s actually closer than we think.
