Will Bayonetta 3 be on PC? The series has yet to appear on PC, but an Nvidia database leak has fans wondering if the third time around will be the charm.

Will Bayonetta 3 Be On PC? Nvidia Leak Stokes Rumors

The Bayonetta games are cult classic action games around which the cult only grows. The third game in the series has only ever been teased via a brief video that premiered at The Game Awards in December 2017, but that hasn't stopped fans from speculating and building anticipation.

When the game's name appeared on a list of upcoming titles that leaked from an Nvidia database, fans gained a reason to believe the game would be released on PC. Nvidia went on to confirm the list was legitimate but said that the list included speculative titles — that is, titles that were not confirmed for PC, or even to be in development. As a result, it's impossible to know if Bayonetta 3's appearance on the list means a PC version is coming.

Even outside of a PC release, little is known about Bayonetta 3. Series creator Hideki Kamiya appeared to tease a reveal for the game might come this year, but has refused to say anything definite. When VGC asked him about a potential reveal before Christmas, he said, "It was more of a not definitely 'something will come out this year,' but if there is a year, then something should happen, right?"

"If you remember last time, I said that even though everyone was asking about Bayonetta 3, maybe you should tell everyone to forget about it for a while. I kind of need to keep to that stance for now because ultimately, it's not our decision what to say and when to say it.

Kamiya stressed that the decision to show Bayonetta 3 publicly lies with Nintendo, and that it will come in due time.
