Bayonetta 2 cancelled?
It's not even been officially announced yet, but word on the grapevine is that Bayonetta 2 may have been cancelled as part of SEGA's effort to restructure and get its financial performance in order. Apparently that plan could involve putting the brakes on one of the publisher's best IPs.
A source close to our good friends at SPOnG dropped the bombshell, claiming that development on a Bayonetta sequel has ground to a halt, following rendunancies and a major reshuffling at SEGA following a poor fiscal year. According to the source, Bayonetta 2 was past its pre-production stage.
Platinum Games' projects have had a history of being critically lauded, then falling short at retail, so its rumoured that Bayonetta 2 could be a casualty of SEGA's new focus on more lucrative projects going forward. The original Bayonetta launched in January 2010 and garnered a well-earned high score on X360A. We're hoping that the rumours of Bayonetta 2's demise are just that. Rumours. SEGA's official line? "No comment." Pah!

What the fuck, Sega?!

Isn't Bayonetta pretty lucrative though? Or is it a forgone conclusion the series can't perform any better than it's first game did?The nerd is a tirelessly predictable creature whom the promise of boobies is like a bacon sandwich to a starving wolf. - Yahtzee
