PlatinumGames, renowned developers of Astral Chain, Nier: Automata, and Bayonetta 3, has confirmed it's interested in making live-service games. During an interview with Famitsu (translated by VGC), CEO Atsushi Inaba discussed plans for the company's future, hinting at what to expect.
During this interview, Inaba mentioned how PlatinumGames want to make titles that can be “enjoyed and loved for a longer period of time.” Perhaps worryingly for some fans, Inaba mentioned moving away from niche titles like Bayonetta and the upcoming Sol Cresta.

PlatinumGames Want To Create "Larger, Riskier" Games With Live-Service Focus
Here’s the full quote from Inaba:
Project G.G. is still in the stage of testing various things, so I can’t tell you much about it, but when it comes to future game production, we want to focus on creating games that are different from the past. I would like to focus on creating games that can be enjoyed and loved for a longer period of time.
Judging by this quote, Project G.G. could kickstart this new live-service initiative from PlatinumGames, though not much is currently known about it. Elsewhere, the company is expected to release Bayonetta 3 for the Nintendo Switch later this year, while players can pick up Nier: Replicant ver.1.22474487139… on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
