I hope that it's happening at all. Makes no sense for a franchise like that to be exclusive.

It was as popular as Bayo 1 back in the day?.

I don't see how it can't be made exclusive, seeing as how no one else has chosen to fund for a sequel, yet Nintendo funded for Bayo 2-3. I feel like it'd make sense for MS to fund an action paced shooter like Vanquish.

I didn't say that it couldn't be secured as an exclusive. Obviously, just about any multiplatform series can. If it needs the funding to exist (which we have no idea of, right now), then great, make it happen—exclusive or otherwise.

Well considering on the game itself being just as niche as Bayo originally was, I'd say it'll gain funding via another party. Sega seems happy at this point to let others fund their IP's in turn for some form of exclusivity, but at the same time they are happy to fund games for others (like Games Workshop IP's for example).

Whether it's as niche as Bayonetta is neither here nor there, for me. Even the exclusivity, itself, isn't the issue. Rather, the actions just prior to, and surrounding, it. Vanquish was just released on another platform. I'm sure fans of said platform would then expect the next game in the series to come to theirs as well. If it's in a dire financial situation, as Street Fighter V was said to have been in (and Bayonetta 2 was rumored to have been in), then that's one thing. On the other hand, for the next game to suddenly be available on only one system, just to keep it off of other platforms, will always be a problem for me—if that's the case. No matter who does it.

We had this happening with Bayo 1 recently, in regards to seeing it re-released on PS4, X1, Switch and even PC. I feel it would be the same in thought for expecting more to come from recent events of having the first game ported over to another platform.

 

Nintendo didn't fund for Bayo 1 to go everywhere else, Sega did that job. But I'm thinking that since Vanquish has now been ported to current gen and PC, the same sort of deal could happen with MS and Sega, for a future sequel being funded by them and then being made an exclusive.



                                       

To give them a cake shaped like Sonic the HedgeHog to be friends



am hoping it could be a new Virtual On or Virtua Fighter game.....*prays*
