Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya has possibly hinted that the firm could be dropping word on a Bayonetta sequel in a Japanese gaming magazine this week. Note the words possibly and could and how they are used in that sentence.

It all started when a fan asked Kamiya when a sequel to the game may be announced. According to a reply from the Bayonetta director: “This week… in a game magazine…”

Kamiya failed to indicate whether he was joking or serious with a follow-up reply or the prerequisite wink or other keyboard created smiley.

Last October, Platinum co-founder Atsushi Inaba said a sequel would happen “when the time is right”, and when we asked SEGA about the tweet this afternoon, a representative told us that the firm “does not comment on rumors or speculation. ”

So, either the game will get an announcement this week or it won’t. Maybe it will be saved for TGS next month.

Maybe, none of the above.

Thanks, Andriasang.
