Platinum says Bayonetta 2 will come 'when the time is right'

Platinum Games co-founder Atsushi Inaba has revealed that the Japanese studio is keen to develop a sequel to Bayonetta, indicating a follow-up to the sultry action romp will happen “when the time is right.”

Bayonetta hit store shelves earlier this year for PS3 and Xbox 360, with publisher SEGA expressing interest in a sequel not long after release. Creator Hideki Kamiya has also hinted on numerous occasions that this isn’t the last we’ve seen of the gun-wielding witch.

And, while nothing has been set in stone, Inaba-san was keen to point out that the IP holds a special place in the hearts of the chaps at Platinum.

“There is no concrete plan or schedule that we can talk about,” Inaba told Eurogamer. “It’s not like [creator Hideki] Kamiya said, ‘OK, we’re going to make this.”

“But Bayonetta is definitely a special IP for us. We loved creating that game. We think it was a really good game.”

“We would love to make a sequel to it when the time is right. That’s all we can say.”
