In an interview earlier, co-founder of developer Platinum Games and Bayonetta series creator Hideki Kamiya revealed that Bayonetta 3 has not been cancelled and dev team is eager to show it but that decision is up to publisher Nintendo.

Meanwhile, longtime Bayonetta voice actor Hellena Taylor recently made an appreciation post on Twitter citing her greatest gift to be lauded by fans and seemingly hinted her absence from third Bayonetta game while responding to a fan.

British actor Hellena Taylor has been voicing English version of every Bayonetta game and other cameos since 2010. However, fans are now worried about whether she is in Bayonetta 3 or not from a number of clues in her response Tweets.

When one of her fan noted on social media that it's hard to imagine Bayonetta without her and she replied with "Well you might have to". Further conversation reveals that she is not at liberty of saying anything and bound by confidentiality.

Bayonetta voice actor Hellena Taylor has taken Twitter to suggest that she may not return for Bayonetta 3.

Bayonetta series fans have already waited four years since its reveal at The Game Awards 2017 event and now possibility of having original voice actress getting replaced and someone else to play titular Umbra Witch is really heartbreaking.

Bayonetta 3 has gone through a troubled development history and due to lack of update, fans thought it was cancelled. Nintendo reassured at E3 2021 that they are making great progress, which is also seconded by Platinum Games' head.
