Rumor: Bayonetta 2 not releasing until 2014
Platinum Games has a new video that they’re using to hype up their newest games. In the video you they are showing off their games for “2013 and Beyond”.
They show off some Metal Gear Rising footage, Wonderful 101 and Max Anarchy. In addition to that they recycle the same teaser of Bayonetta 2 as well.
But one thing should be noted from this is that all of the titles they show off have (mostly) concrete release dates in 2013. Metal Gear Rising is releasing in February, Wonderful 101 has repeatedly been called a Wii U “launch window” game implying it will arrive before the end of March.
Max Anarchy is finally hitting US stores this week. That just leaves Bayonetta 2 and that pesky little “and beyond”.
This seems to me like a strong hint from Platinum Games that Bayonetta 2 will not release in 2013. If Max Anarchy, Metal Gear and Wonderful 101 all have release dates ironed out right now, and Bayonetta 2 is the only other title shown then it literally has to be the only title that fits the “beyond” description.
I hate to say it but it does look like Bayonetta 2 won’t make it out this year. There would be no point in Platinum saying “2013 and beyond” if one of those titles wasn’t coming in 2013. Hopefully Platinum will shoot this suspicion down soon.
