An enigmatic tweet from Bayonetta 3 director Hideki Kamiya earlier this week led to speculation that the game would be revealed next week, but Kamiya has shot down such hopes.
Several sources reported that Kamiya suggested that news on the title would become available “next week” in response to a fan query on Twitter. However, Kamiya more recently returned to the social media platform to clarify that the statement was part of a running joke.
Although the translation is imperfect, Kamiya wrote, “Whenever I see my ‘Next week ○ ○’ series is rumored every time, from the Earth, it will be a feeling of fraud.”

Bayonetta 3 was first revealed as a Switch exclusive at The Game Awards in 2017, though little news about the highly anticipated title have emerged in the years since. The last official word on the project is from a few months ago, with the update merely stating that the team continues to work on it.
