Since the Bayonetta 3 announcement at last year's Game Awards, rumors have been swirling as to when we get this highly anticipated title. With a January Nintendo Direct in the cards, the rumor mill is in full swing, the latest giving us an alleged Summer release window.
The report in question comes from one Redditor users whose sources have been "confirmed" by the moderators of the NintendoSwitch thread. According to his alleged insider information:
"I cannot personally reveal my source, but I have it on good authority from a reliable source that Bayonetta 3 will be released this year, maybe this summer. It will not be released later than 2018 barring a disaster.
<...> I’m sorry but I can’t say much more other than watch out for the Nintendo Direct because Bayonetta 3 will be one of those placeholder games that Nintendo is preparing to release. This direct may be Nintendo’s E3 if what we’ve heard is true."
