Bayonetta creator Hideki Kamiya previously worked at Capcom. Most of the senior Platinum Games staff is from Clover Studios that was a subsidiary of Capcom. A recent picture of Kamiya hints that they might be back to working together.
Kamiya has been vocal in the past about Capcom although he still respected them. There has been no collaboration between Platinum Games or Capcom, even though they both could benefit greatly from it. Kamiya was last seen working on Scalebound which was canceled by Microsft. Since then, his new project remains a mystery.
In a photo that he shared on Instagram, he said: “Capcom and PG we are one.” The photo that he took was with Ryozo Tsujimoto who is the Head of Division 2 in Capcom.
Viewtiful Joe, Devil May Cry and Okami are all the projects that Kamiya has worked on with Capcom in the past. He was also the lead director of Resident Evil 2. Capcom has recently released a remaster of Okami, so are they finally open to bringing the series back with Kamiya back in the director’s chair? Perhaps, they want to make another Viewtiful Joe? It is too early to say anything, so this is all mere speculation.
