Forums - Nintendo Discussion - [Rumor] Bayonetta 3 releasing in 2018

The problem is no gameplay has been shown at all. Until I've seen gameplay I'm not convinced. We have no idea how long they've been working on Bayonetta 3 because they haven't announced a release date and had just shown a really short cinematic trailer and nothing else.



Around the Network

Not a chance.



Time between Bayonetta 2 initial reveal ---> Release: 2 years and 7 days.

If we apply this to Bayonetta 3's reveal, it would comparably come out Dec 14, 2019.

A lot of people said the same about Xenoblade Chronicles 2 releasing in 2017.

Except Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was announced for 2017. Like, the very first trailer, it said 2017. It had gameplay too.

This is absolutely not the same thing.

Edit: I mean, if they believed they could get it done by 2018, why wouldn't they say so? The hype would be crazy if they announced it at TGA and said it comes out within a year. They'd have no reason not to.

If we apply this to Xenoblade 2's reveal, it would comparably come out May 2nd, 2019.

Very few people believed Monolith Soft would actually pull off a 2017 release date.
They did a gameplay trailer and reveal for Xenoblade Chronicles X as well when they showed that game off for the first time in their January 2013 Direct, that game ended up coming out in April 2015 in Japan, December 2015 in everywhere else.

So everyone was right to doubt that they could suddenly pull off a simultaneous worldwide release for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 within the same year it was announced. 

But, they proved a lot of people wrong, myself included. And it turned out to be a really great game. A better game that 'X', in my opinion. 

And Nintendo, as a whole, had been astronomically better with announcements and release dates for the Switch's first year than they ever were throughout the 3DS and Wii U's life cycles. So, it's not too far fetched now to think that Bayonetta 3 in 2018 can happen.

It's possible. Because Bayonetta 3 isn't on a significantly different generational hardware from Wii U, they can re-use the engine and a lot of assets. That would speed up development.

They're probably working on it for more than a year, so I could certainly see that.



YES



Maybe if it's not developed by Platinum. I heard they have enough other projects.
