The Nintendo-published third entry in the Bayonetta action series was first announced via a brief teaser at The Game Awards in December 2017, but nothing has been seen of it since. Asked in 2019 if the lengthy silence surrounding Bayonetta 3 was indicative of Platinum’s grand ambitions for it, studio head Atsushi Inaba told VGC: “Yes, it’s going to be a high quality title and we’re putting our all into it,” Inaba said. “That is what you’re seeing .”
“We like to show things whenever we’re ready to show them, and certainly we like to show things when the developer’s ready to show them. So we didn’t have it at E3, but stay tuned.” “I will even go one further,” Trinen added, “and say not only does it exist, but it’s progressing well.
Nothing has been seen of Bayonetta 3 since a teaser trailer three and a half years ago Inaba previously revealed that Platinum was trying to move away from “an orthodox development process” with Bayonetta 3.
In addition to Bayonetta 3, Platinum is working on Project G.G., the action game featuring a giant hero described as the “climax” to Kamiya’s superhero trilogy, following Viewtiful Joe and The Wonderful 101. “For Bayonetta 3, we can say that we learned enough from making the past two games to change our process in a way that’s different to what I just described.” “With Bayonetta 1 and 2 we had basically an orthodox development process, at least for us,” he told VGC. “We did stage one, then stage two, then stage three and built up the drama and the pacing chronologically.
