Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 has been given a release date of May 1st on the GameStop website. This is the first “semi-official” release date announcement for the game so far, as publisher Platinum Games has yet to reveal an official release date.
This isn’t the first time that GameStop has “leaked” a game’s release date before the publisher has officially announced it. These early release date announcements have been known to be right before, although on other occasions they have been known to be wrong. Oftentimes when dates get listed like this they turn out to be placeholder dates, rather then accidental leaks.
Platinum Games has yet to comment on the date GameStop has listed; although they have recently mentioned that they’re tired of people begging for ports to other systems.
What do you make of this? Do you think the date it legitimate? Let us know in the comments!
