It sounds like SEGA has canned the sequel to Platinum Games' much loved character action title, Bayonetta. A report on Spong notes that the successor was culled as part of the publisher’s major restructuring plans.

The website reports that the sequel was set to include “a new character, in the form of a member of the US military”.

While Platinum Games never officially confirmed the follow up, it has been heavily rumoured since the original title's 2010 release.

Obviously, we feel your pain.
