There is an inevitability that Vanquish is coming to the PC after such a blatant hint dropped by Platinum Games made its way into the latest Bayonetta update. However, fans aren’t stopping there! Other new content has convinced a smaller group of fans that Bayonetta 3 is also brewing within the company.
A blog post from Platinum Games itself had a harmless and fun little idea of turning the long legged witch into an English teacher. The uploaded videos from Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 have different characters repeating catchphrases and each line is said exactly three times.
What does it mean!? Bayonetta 3 confirmed?
As an English teacher myself, I can promise that repetition is the best way to get your foot in the door when picking up new phrases and vocabulary. Repetition then production then personalization. Seeing Bayonetta and friends repeat their lines three times is nothing out of the ordinary for a normal day of work to me.
That’s why I’m not as inclined to see this as a hint for Bayonetta 3, as a good deal many are doing.

As wrong as I hope I am, Half-Life 3 has about as much of a chance being confirmed from this speculation as Bayonetta 3 does. That being said, Shenmue III’s leaks seemed sketchy at first but ultimately proved to be true. You just never know!
