    RUMOR: Bayonetta 2 Killed

    ]

    Uh Oh.

    It’s no secret Sega is a troubled studio, having never recovered as a hardware maker after the failure of the Dreamcast console more than a decade ago. Since then, though they’ve retained a strong presence in Japan as a maker of third party games, they have never managed to really establish themselves that successfully in the west. While they’re unlikely to goa way any time soon, bad financials in 2011 led them to enact restructuring in their Western business (Europe and the Americas). This made it inevitable that some planned releases would be put up on the chopping block, and we now have our first potential victim: Bayonetta 2.

    Spong is claiming
    that a well-placed source has informed them the sequel to the 2009 beat-em-up/shooter hybrid has been cancelled. This would appear to affect the entirety of Platinum Games’ (the Sega subsidiary who created Bayonetta) upcoming slate, and comes after recent hints were dropped about the production of the game. Bayonetta wasn’t a flop, but it only sold 1.5 million copies, probably a smaller number than Sega had hoped. That would make it a likely candidate for axing. So far, Sega hasn’t confirmed anything: Asked by Spong for comment, they said ‘no comment’.

    We’ll let you know as the story develops. In the meantime, if you were looking forward to Bayonetta 2, feel free to complain in comments.
    One of the best action/shooter games i've ever played on the PS3 ( right next to DMC). Its such a dam shame thiers rumors it might kick the can but i have heart it might not be the end of this awesome game.


    UPDATE: Hideki Kamiya, Director of Bayonetta 2, has confirmed news release in Japanese Gaming Magazine next week. Cross your Fingers for good news. :-)

    This makes me very sad.

    I'd read the other day that Heavenly Sword 2 was killed early in production as well.

    This is disappointing news indeed I hope they don't cancel Bayonetta 2. Looks like I may have to go pick up the 1st one again, and hold onto it.

    Sadly something has to give and it looks like Bayonetta will take the rap,shame really as the original game is stupidly brilliant fun.

    I've liked more of SEGA's recent games and i can't believe such hard times have befallen the company that got me into gaming big time.

    Oh well, the first was a shit game anyway. You know if the protagonist was a beefy geezer it wouldn't have been nearly as popular

    Not true. i like the gameplay, and the little story behind it, the controls and everything. Though the character was a plus.
    K? Thanks

    Another Call of Duty is right on cue to come out and an awesome original IP is facing doom. The games industry makes me so sad

    Hopefully it will still come if it's been confirmed for Japan.

    The gameplay alone made Bayonetta a good game. It's a shame that a sequel may never see the light of day.

    Well this is some sad news indeed but maybe some one else might grab hold of the franchise if sega sells it like konami sold true crime to square enix..at least it would live that way right.

    If the sequel had the same gameplay (plus a few good tweaks here and there that improved it even a little) and an good plot, then I'd totally boycott SEGA. But if it had a plot as moronic as the original, then I wouldn't be so worried. Either way, here's hoping that the announcement you added at the end is for Bayonetta 2 and not something else (like a new Sonic game ).

    It is just a rumor, so that is a relief. Hopefully it doesn't get axed because Bayonetta is one of the finest games in its genre.
