We are approaching the final months of 2021 and the highly anticipated action game from PlatinumGames, Bayonet 3, has still not been seen or heard. The third installment of the series was first revealed by Platinum and Nintendo during the Game Awards in 2017, but since then it has not been featured in any capacity. However, thanks to a new update from the game’s developers, it appears that this lack of information about the project is not the fault of PlatinumGames itself.
In a new conversation with VGC, PlatinumGames director Hideki Kamiya commented on the lingering silence surrounding Bayonet 3. Earlier in the year, Kamiya had mentioned that 2021 could be a year in which the studio could provide fans with a new update on the game. Now, with no news as of yet, Kamiya has continued to point out that fans should just try to forget about the project for now. “If you remember the last time I said that although everyone was asking about Bayonet 3, maybe you should tell everyone to forget about it for a while, “Kamiya said.” I kind of have to keep that position for now because at the end of the day it’s not it’s up to us to decide what to say and when to say it. ”
Kamiya continued on this last point and said that those working on the title at PlatinumGames are very keen to show more of it. However, since Nintendo is the publisher of Bayonet 3, the decision to show more of the title is in their hands. “As much as everyone is clamoring to see it, we’re really, really waiting to release it too. Everyone working on the project is of course very proud of what we’re doing and wants everyone to see what we’re doing.” , he said of the studio’s current work on the title. “As much as the fans expect, we are waiting for the day when we can show it. We want everyone to cheer us on as we run to the home stretch. We want to show it too!”
At this point there is still a chance that we can still see Bayonet 3 before the end of the year. Nintendo usually chooses to host some direct presentation of some sort in the Fall Window, which means that the next time such a live broadcast happens, maybe Bayonet 3 could finally reappear. Until then, however, it might be best to listen to Kamiya and try to forget about the game for now.
So what do you think? Will we end up seeing more of Bayonet 3 before 2021? Let me know what you think in the comments or on Twitter at @ Mooreman12.
