Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon just released last week, to largely positive if unexceptional reviews. It wasn’t long ago that series creator Hideki Kamiya professed that he wants to series to continue past Origins into many many more entries, but in a new interview from Famitsu (translated courtesy of VGC), Kamiya says that talks for the series’ future are still internal at PlatinumGames, with no plans approved by publisher Nintendo yet. However, the Big N is reasonably confident the series will go on, at least according to Nintendo producer Makoto Ohzaki.
“We currently have nothing concrete to share with you about the future of the series yet, but I personally do not believe this is the end of Bayonetta,” said Ohzaki. “I would first like to hear the thoughts and opinions of the players who have played this game, and then consider the future of the series.”
While Sega still owns the Bayonetta IP, all games in the series past the first have been published by Nintendo as part of a licensing agreement. It’ll likely only be a matter of time until we see what the Umbran Witch has in store next.
