It has been nothing but magic since SEGA and Platinum Games joined forces. All of their games have received varying degrees of critical praise and commercial success. The four game contract ended with the release of Vanquish earlier this week, MadWorld, Infinite Space and Bayonetta making up the other three.
When asked about how many titles the contract enclosed, executive producer Atsushi Inaba replied:
“Yes you’re correct, we have made the four titles in our contract, The partnership has been great, and we are in talks with Sega now, but there’s nothing concrete we can say about it at the moment. When we created Platinum Games, we of course talked to a lot of publishers, and Sega offered us the most freedom to develop games. I think the partnership has been great, and I’m really grateful for their support, For the future of our partnership, of course, it’s not something that we alone can decide. Sega has its stance, and we have ours, but if Sega asks us to make something we might take the offer.”
One can only guess that after showcasing their abilities in games like Bayonetta that Platinum Games’ publishing options are vast, but why fix something that isn’t broken?
