Platinum Games’ game director, Hideki Kamiya, has reached out to assure Bayonetta 3 fans that no, the highly-anticipated third instalment of the fan-favourite franchise “hasn’t been cancelled by any means”.

In a wide-ranging interview, Kamiya confirmed that he’s seen worried fans’ comments on social media but wanted to encourage them that despite a lack of updates and information recently, “[Platinum Games is] still hard at work on it” on the hack-n-slash sequel.
