Ever since Bayonetta 3 was announced for the Nintendo Switch at The Game Awards 2017, it has been nothing but silence from Platinum Games. Occasionally, you will hear reassurance that the development is going well. For example, Gematsu did an interview with Platinum Games executive vice president and studio head Atsushi Inaba, as well as senior vice president and game designer Hideki Kamiya, at PAX East 2020. Once again, they were asked about the development of Bayonetta 3. Inaba replied, saying that "there's nothing to worry about at all. There's nothing to worry about. Things are going very well. Really, there's nothing to worry about".
