Well yeah, I know something has to be officially announced first to get cancelled but I guess this applies as well. Sega is not in a good position right now financially, so this rumour has a lot of weight.
A website called Spong says that Bayonetta 2 has been cancelled due to the current restructuring process Sega is going through. Attempts to contact and ask Hideki Kamiya – who worked on the first game – on Twitter results in a standard reply, “I am not Sega Man”, uh, okay.
The game was supposed to contain a new character from the US military, and the game was supposed to be in the pre-production stage.
The original game was a critical hit and the sales failed to break 1 million, so this could be the main reason why Sega does not want to make Bayonetta 2. But this is still a rumour at this stage.
We will contact Sega and let you know if they say anything. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
