Sega and Platinum Games have been great for each other, so it's no surprise that the developer wishes to extend its deal with the publisher.
According to CVG and SegaBits citing the most recent issue of GameInformer, Sega West VP of marketing and sales, Alan Pritchard, has confirmed that they will soon announce the newest Platinum offering. This comes on the heels of the completion of the duo's four-game deal, which started with MadWorld and ended with October's Vanquish . As Platinum has hinted at a Bayonetta sequel and it's the most popular of the group (although Vanquish did relatively well on the sales charts), our money's on Bayonetta 2 . Although the PlayStation 3 version suffered due to a slipshod port on Sega's part, it's clear Platinum learned their lesson; Vanquish was excellent on both the PS3 and 360. Therefore, we're willing to bet PS3 owners won't get shafted again with a Bayonetta follow-up, and we know action aficionados are just aching for more intricate, hardcore witch action.
Oh, and by the way, Pritchard also confirmed that Aliens: Colonial Marines is still a go, and there will be three major Sonic announcements early next year. …um, yay?
