Why wasn't Bayonetta 2 Xbox One exclusive?

Random, but while MS was racking up the X1 exclusives, why was Bayonetta 2 left to a dead platform with virtually zero audience for it? Seems like MS could have easily money-hatted this if it wanted to?

Gotta ask Microsoft that question

Vanquish Xbox One better be in development at Platinum.

Vanquish was far too eastern for me. The combat was...meh, at best. My opinion, of course.

As I was going up the stairs I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away.

Vanquish gameplay was BAD ASS! Completing challenges 4& 6 were a real achievement.

Not every TPS game can be a Gears clone, unless your working for a Sony first party dev.

Word on the street is that Platinum is in talks to becoming a Nintendo 2nd Party dev, so if you want those games you might have to get a WiiU.

Nintendo pulled it out of the trash.

Because no one wants and Xbone and the Wii U is an actual good platform.

Bayonetta destroys GoW's gameplay.
