Rumor: Bayonetta 2 not releasing until 2014

Platinum Games is hinting at Bayonetta 2 not releasing in 2013. Platinum recently described Max Anarchy, Wonderful 101, Metal Gear Rising and Bayonetta 2 as their upcoming games for "2013 and beyond" yet all of those games except Bayonetta have a relatively firm 2013 release date already. So logically, Bayonetta 2 must be the game coming out "beyond" 2013. (Bayonetta 2, PlatinumGames, Wii U)

I kinda got the Vibe that B2 wasn't coming out this year, because their wasn't much said about it after the confirmation that it was going to be a Wii U exclusive.

The Wii U still has Wonderful 101 from Platinum Games in 2013 and all the other games that Nintendo has yet to announce. And I'm sure they have their hands full with Anarchy Reigns, Metal Gear Rising and Wonderful 101 to have B2 come out in the same year.

EDIT: In the end, it could always release in the fall, after those games are released, they will have some talent from the other games move over to B2 and help move the development along. I don't expect them to rush to have it out.

The fact nothing is said...is simply a Nintendo thing. I know PG is developing it. But since Nintendo is publishing it they probably told them to keep it quite.

Nintendo pulls the trigger.

If that happens I'll live. It's not like there won't be other good games this year.

yes please . the longer it takes to finish a game, the funner and godly it becomes .

they also said "and more" when showcases there games didn't they? i jsut thought it was announced games by them, that we will be seeing in 2014
Theyellowflash30  +   632d ago
This is cool with me if true. Bayonetta 2 is ready when its ready. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Aliens Colonial Marines is enough for me for the early part of 2013 and at E3 there will be plenty of new game announcements, so im good

Well nothing is confirmed yet... Could be late 2013 , maybe not though ahh well . There will be a few suprise announcements of games releasing this year anyway for wiiu...

LOL
Platinum shoot themselves in the feet with the exclusivity.
No way Bayo2 will sell 2 millions copies on WiiU like Bayo did on PS3+XBOX360
Also 2014 will surely see the true next gen consoles and Bayo2 in 2014 will be obsolete.
I'm very sad about this story because it's messed big time.
Surely Nintendo fans will start saying without Nintendo there wouldn't have been a Bayo2...probably it's true, but is releasing a game at all costs always the right way to go?
Because if Bayo2 fails in sales it's the end of the franchise, especially if, as rumored, it will be filled with Nintendo references and can't be ported.
Remember the IP is still Sega's property, so the game can go multiplat exactly like Mass Effect 1 and I don't expect Nintendo paying Sega the insane amount of money Microsoft pays to Epic to keep Gears exclusive)
I really hope it's a limited time exclusive, because the WiiU isn't doing well, and won't be doing well, and Bayo2 won't help to boost sales like any 3rd party game on a Nintendo console.
Theyellowflash30  +   632d ago
If Bayonetta 1 did so well in sales why didn't Sega, Microsoft, or Sony want to publish it?

Bayonetta might benefit from being a Nintendo exclusive because every Nintendo fan I know is already categorizing it with Mario, Metroid, and Zelda. In other words... a true 'Nintendo exclusive'.

And Please get over yourself. Xbox 720 and PS4 are just going to another console you can play the plethora of shooters on.

And the Wii U is doing fine. Its sold more than the PS3 and 360 on their respective launches, and is nearing 3 million units in about two months on the market. Stop drinking that Pachter fanboy koolaid.

Because Sega is stupid (look at Anarchy Reigns and other stupid cuts), Sony felt butthurt with the awful port and Microsoft...bah, does Microsoft have a strategy?

It's not Pachter fanboy koolaid...you're the one in denial...it's true, WiiU sold well, and all those that planned to buy it...already did, so how much will it sell from now on since even big third party publishers are already leaving the sinking WiiU ship
Theyellowflash30  +   631d ago
There are still a number of people waiting for Smash Bros, Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart, and Pokemon. Don't fool yourself, you know nothing and are basing your statements off of nothing. How do you know everybody who wanted a Wii U bought one already? Where did you get this data?

You know what I know? Nintendo exclusives move units. Mario Kart, Smash Bros, and Mario Galaxy have sold more than all of Sony's PS3 exclusives put together. And there are millions of gamers waiting to play the first HD versions of each of those games.

Once again.... stop drinking that Pachter fanboy koolaid as I whoop you with stats. And developers are not leaving the Wii U Ship. Bioware, Team Ninja, Ubisoft, and Gearbox all have projects for Wii U. Once again you know nothing.

lol baseless logic man, the game would only get push back if nintendo decided to make space for even bigger games in 2013
millzy102  +   632d ago
@ omegaslayer you couldnt be more wrong of you tried, first off bayonnetta is owned by platinum games, Sega stoped funding for the game after the first one didn't sell epectations, Sega only had the publishing rights, no one else offered the funding apart from Nintendo, now nintedo is publishing the game (as in founding the project and distribution advertisement etc) so because its funded by Nintendo thus makes it a nintendo game, even if it only sells 1 unit it won't go multi plat as niether Sega or platinum games have the publication rights (publication rights are different to interlectual property)

your point about mass effect is also wrong. ea published and developed mass effect 1 then Microsoft paid a fee for exclusivity but it was still an ea game all rights ip and publishing where owned by ea so after the exclusivity contract ran out with microsft it is there's to do with as they wish.

and thirdly the Wii u has sold more units in a month than anyother console in history except ps
2 and Wii so if that's not doing too well no console will. people need to learn what they talk about and BAYONETTA 2 IS NOT A TIMED EXCLUSIVE IT IS A FULL EXCLUSOVE NINTENDO IS PAYING THE BILLS.

why is it bayonetta is good enough to play unless its a Nintendo exclusive a good game is good regardless of platform.

Man, you're the biggest failure I've seen on N4G in years.
First of all, Bayonetta is owned by Sega.
IF you watched the show reel THIS thread is referring too until the end you would SEE it CLEARLY.
VERY CLEARLY.
so...this alone would be enough to silence you for eternity, because you proved yourself to be all talk and not even wise enough to do researches before talking.
I attached an image to this post to show you how much you fail.
Shame on you for hitting people while being presumptuos and misinformed.

Second...you're hitting the wrong guy about Mass Effect1...
http://masseffect1onps3.blo...
http://masseffect1onps3.blo...
HOW much do you know about Copyrights, Intellectual Properties, (with 2 l, not rl) Deals and so on?

If WiiU is selling so well, why devs are already leaving it behind?
Castlevania LOS2, Metro Last Light, Crysis 3 say hello!

You're in denial, now get back to your WiiU, take your pad, go in the bath and cry while playing.

In denial as your friend @Theyellowflash30
You speak about stats?
where are your stats?
links?
your words are worth mines (and Pachter's and other analysts) if they're only words.
But I can serve you these as a gentle reminder

@omegaslayer firstly that link you put up proves my point it says mass effect is owned by ea international/ bioware which is what i said, secondly here's a link on platinum games looking for a publishing partner for bayonetta 2.

http://www.ps3trophies.com/...

if they didnt own all or some the rights this is not in there power and i highly doubt nintendo would pay 2 companies for 1 game.

thirdly all of the games you pointed out have been in dev for a while and to port the wii u will either mean delay the game or realese wii u version later, none of which makes a great deal of sense in a buisness point of view.

and finaly im not a nintendo fanboy im a gaming fanboy and i can get them on my ps3 if i so wish, most of which i do not so that part of your argument is void, and im glad bayonetta is staying a nintendo exclusive just to piss of "hardcore gamers" like your self that dont play games but consoles, like i said why is bayonetta good enough to play until its exclusive on nintendo.

p.s. most wii u users (according to miiverse) are MULTIPLATFORM OWNERS who don't care for ports of games already anounced we want new games which were getting or got,

rayman legends

bayonetta 2 (ha ha ha)

wonderful 101

lego city uncovered

zombi u

and wait till e3 then we will see what games come out but until then i will be able to play the best console version of aliens.

wii u still sold more than ps3 and 360 together in the same time frame, 2.2 million in the first month and a half is not bad, that is 88% wii sales which for a more expensive console isnt bad at all.

http://wiiudaily.com/2012/1...

so the xbox and ps3 didnt sell well too according to your logic.

1 dissagree already lol (i hate that frase but its the only one to explain your stupudity), do research trolls everything I said is true. I actually look shit up on multipal sites not Wikipedia or first google search that shows.
millzy102  +   632d ago
Microsoft don't meke gears of war they pay for it to be made for Xbox so its an Xbox game like Nintendo paying for bayonetta is now a nintendo game.

YoungPlex  +   631d ago
It's funny when people let their imagination get the best of them! It could get delayed but I truly highly doubt it will be till 2014, especially when it has a release date of sometime in April! Either way it's a rumor that some silly fan made up off of his silly observation of "beyond" lol...

I can believe that. It'll be months before we see gameplay footage.
