It looks as if publisher Sega and developer Platinum Games have successfully agreed terms on a deal to extend the partnership between the two.
In October the release of manic Xbox 360 and PS3 shooter Vanquish marked the official end of the four game deal both companies had previously signed. The other releases to come from the union are Wii brawler MadWorld, DS RPG Infinite Space and colourful console action outing Bayonetta.
Platinum's executive producer Atsushi Inaba said at the time: 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.”
Now, speaking with Game Informer (via Segabits) Sega's Western vice president Alan Pritchard has apparently confirmed that talks were successful.
We have a further title to announce from Platinum Games,” he stated, and while not being drawn on what the new game may be, he did add that it won't be a sequel to MadWorld.
It was a he risk that we really believed in at the time, but the title did not sell well,” he confessed.
