Although not directly Nintendo related PG is no longer making Granblue Fantasy meaning their only known console projects right now are Bayonetta 3 and Babylon Fall.

Dang, Platinum has been fired a lot/had their games cancelled a lot recently.

I just want to see some Bayonetta 3 soon.

I wonder even more if they're trying too much to strech themselves just to take so many contracts. I mean, they have yet to show more of Bayonetta 3 (I think this one is going along pretty smooth though with Nintendo's watch), Babylon's Fall and a yet to be announced project ...

Yeah same. I know they want to make a lot of money and be multi-platform but I think they might be focusing too much on too many projects. They only have 206 staff and while they probably do get extra help from their contractors, the fact that some of their biggest projects as of late have been cancelled or that they were taken of the dev team is pretty troubling. I think it really is most likely just being spread too thin. I don't see this as a reason to worry about Bayonetta 3 though, mind you.

Hope Nintendo secures that open development slot.

So I was looking at Diablo 3's sales ...



Fun fact: Third parties do not sell on Nintendo platforms

Also, Diablo III has quietly become the next Skyrim. It didn't perform as well first week but it's sales numbers have been more consistent. It's sold 670k physical already. I knew that the game would be a lot bigger than people were making it out to be (I mean, Diablo III was a massive game when it launched and it seems like the perfect game for portable play) but hot damn. Selling that much in 9 weeks is crazy.

It's great. I do think the previous holiday might have push it heavily which helped a lot too.

I've been interested in diablo 3 switch but I bought the 360 versions years ago and thought it sucked and honestly haven't been keeping up with how the game has evolved

I dont think they were fired.If Im not mistaken, their contract just reached its end.I mean, Cygames could have extended it, but I guess Platinum just finished their part and Cygames is just giving the finishing touches.As far as I know, this game has been in development for quite a while.I dont think its going to take more than a year for it to release.

Yeah that may be true. I just find it weird ... I've never heard of an announcement that someone is no longer developing the game before we even have a release date. Especially the specific announcement that the "contract has ended" (which doesn't necessarily verify one theory or another). You're probably right though, it's just kinda weird. I'm sure it's been done in the gaming industry before but usually it seems like we don't hear it months or possible even a year before launch.
