Sega keen on Bayonetta sequel

And Total War is 'set to head in a new direction', reveals publisher

Sega has told CVG that it is very keen on creating sequels for Bayonetta, Aliens Vs Predator and Alpha Protocol.

Speaking in the second part of our exclusive interview, Sega West president Mike Hayes said that the firm was also ready to take the Total War series 'in a new direction'.

"We want to get the core games right before anything else," said Hayes. "We've got our shooter with AvP and our RPG with Alpha Protocol - we really want to make those into franchises.

"If you think about it, we can sequel-ise Bayonetta, AVP, Alpha Protocol and we can make a hit of something like Vanquish. Add that to Football Manager and Virtua Tennis - we actually have a broad portfolio."

We reported yesterday Sega uis aiming to bulk up its share of sales on Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2010.
