Bayonetta 2 no longer a possibility

The restructuring upheaval at Sega's western branches has led to the cancelation of the unannounced Bayonetta 2. Due to the changes, the publisher is devoting its efforts solely to established IPs and digital sales.

The source at SPOnG was unable to confirm whether Bayonetta 2 had entered pre-production or full-on development, but the game was said to introduce a character who was a member of the US military.

Despite the cancelation, Bayonetta herself will appear in Platinum Games' upcoming brawler Anarchy Reigns.
