Mere weeks after the release of Bayonetta 3, series creator Hideki Kamiya has casually announced that a fourth game is in the works. Confirming the announcement via Twitter, he also acknowledged that it is an unexpected development following how the third game ended, and that Bayonetta 3’s somewhat controversial ending may not have been conveyed “correctly” to fans.
“I didn’t think it was unexpected at all, but it seems that the ending of Bayo 3 wasn’t conveyed correctly to everyone, so I think Bayo 4 will be an unexpected development for everyone,” Kamiya said in a Twitter post translated by Eurogamer. “After all, when Bayo 4 comes out, I’m sure there will be people who say, ‘You added that as an afterthought’, so I’ll say it now.”
