Is Sega teasing a Vanquish port for PC?

Sega and PlatinumGames may be finally on the verge of giving fans something they’ve been begging for: a PC port of Shinji Mikami’s third-person shooter Vanquish. Or at least that’s how fans are interpreting an update that rolled out for the Windows PC version of Bayonetta on Steam today.

That update was a measly 22 kilobytes and included a single new Steam avatar tucked away in the “extras” system folder of Bayonetta. That avatar features Vanquish protagonist Sam Gideon wearing his Augmented Reaction Suit, and is the only non-Bayonetta avatar of the bunch.

Sega similarly teased the recently launched PC port of Bayonetta in the form of a playable 8-bit-style game released on Steam. That game pointed to a website that counted down to the PC release of Bayonetta earlier this month.

While Sega hasn’t made an official announcement about a PC version of Vanquish, the company has teased that it plans to release more of its console-only games via Steam.

John Clark, senior vice president of commercial publishing for Sega Europe, recently said the publisher is “dedicated to bringing high-quality, best practice PC conversions of our back catalogue games to our fans” and hinted “there’s more to come” after the PC ports of Valkyria Chronicles and Bayonetta.

Vanquish was originally released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010. The game offered a high-speed, PlatinumGames-style take on the cover-based, third-person shooter genre and was beloved by action game fans.

We’ve reached out to Sega for comment on the possibility of Vanquish for PC and will update with any response from the company.
