Source: Work On Bayonetta 2 Halted
Most assumed a sequel to Bayonetta was in the works, as the first met with high critical praise and enjoyed relatively high sales.
But according to SPOnG citing a source "familiar with the situation," Bayonetta 2 has been shelved due to Sega's "ongoing restructure." Boo.....
Apparently, at least some work had indeed begun at Platinum Games, but development was then halted. Last month, Sega announced a drastic restructuring of their Western consumer business, not long after posting a terrible fiscal performance. It was rumored that several projects had been canceled and now it appears that a Bayonetta follow-up was one of the casualties.
The character of Bayonetta will appear in the upcoming Anarchy Reigns, a flashy brawler with great multiplayer potential. And fans of the sexy bespectacled witch definitely wanted a true sequel to the first game, but they may be disappointed.
