A Reddit user named _darth_solo is claiming that a source has revealed that Bayonetta 3 may be coming out as early as summer 2018. If it doesn’t make the summer cut, the source has said the Switch-only game will be out before the end of 2018.
He claims that this is “on good authority from a reliable source” and that this person’s information will be corroborated at a Nintendo Direct in the near future.
The suspicion is that B3 will be showcased at E3, though some in the thread are saying that it’s equally possible a new Pokemon or Animal Crossing game is more likely.
Here’s the word from the official Platinum Games blog:
