Platinum Games says Bayonetta 3 isn't cancelled, tells fans to take those concerns and "throw them out the window"

Really, everything is fine!

For some reason, people are absolutely convinced that Bayonetta 3 is going through some sort of development issues, or is on the brink of cancellation. Platinum has said countless times that the game is motoring along just fine, but fans refuse to believe it. Today, we once again get confirmation that things are moving along without issue.

In an interview with VideogamesChronicle, none other than Platinum's Hideki Kamiya addresses the concern head-on. If this doesn't convince fans that everything is fine, nothing will!

I’m on Twitter so I see a lot of comments every day. I’m happy that there’s still anticipation for the title, but one thing I would like to address is the trend I’m seeing which is people who are starting to ask if the game has been cancelled. I want you guys to take any concerns you have like that and throw them out the window immediately because we’re still hard at work on it and it hasn’t been cancelled by any means. Please look forward to it!

They revealed this game's existence way, WAY too early...

IN ONE HAND: How many times does he have to repeat that for people to believe?
IN THE OTHER HAND: How many times we heard similar statements about previous games that ended up being canned?

Those canned responses don’t hold a lot of weight do to shallow relationship that the PR or producers have with the fans. I trust Platinum to be genuine.

Kamiya is famously candid so yeah if he says "development is going fine, stop worrying" then I believe him.

Let it cook, people, no one likes to get an undercooked main dish.

Yup sure was. People talk about other companies announcing shit too early but praise Nintendo for announcing stuff close to release. But games like Bayo 3, Prime 4, Twilight Princess, Pikmin 3 & 4, and BOTW beg to differ...

Granted these are rare exceptions but it DOES happen and it sucks...

Yeah there are very few exceptions. But Nintendo usually announce their games 6 months or even less before their launch. Meanwhile third parties usually announce their games 2 years before launch. Is insane that people believe Bayo 3 is cancelled because of Prime 4, Prime 4 was a extremely weird case, since project Hammer Nintendo didnt have cancelled games.

Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4 are the only upcoming first party Nintendo games we know nothing about that were announced on Switch, and we know MP4 was because they had to restart development with Retro.
These answers are worrying as more time passes it could sign trouble, even if the game turns out fine at the end its weird that Platinum takes this long to make a game

Or maybe the game was announced shortly after it was greenlit and its really only had 2 years of development

It's not that weird. Both Astral Chain and Bayonetta 2 had five year development cycles.

Platinum just has too many things going on at one time. And this virus isn't helping things either.
