The one rumour that just refuses to go away: Devil May Cry 5 is real and it's coming to PlayStation 4. The game's existence has been brought up countless times over the last couple of years, but there's been no official word from Capcom. However, the whispers have really began to pick up the pace recently with PlayStation Experience 2017 looming on the horizon.
There was a leak earlier this month that suggested both Devil May Cry 5 and SoulCalibur VI will turn up at Sony's event. Admittedly, it seemed rather hard to believe, but like we say, the rumours just won't stop, and this latest one comes courtesy of ResetEra.
According to one forum user, Devil May Cry 5 -- stylised as Devil May Cry V -- has been in development for two years. However, it won't actually be revealed at PSX 2017. Supposedly, Sony took note of fan feedback after its E3 press conference this year, and thus has decided to scale back PSX 2017. This information coincides with what the Japanese giant itself has stated. As such, it's apparently unlikely that the game will be revealed this year.
Moving into finer details, it'll supposedly star Dante, it'll have some sort of PlayStation exclusivity, and it's taken inspiration from Dragon's Dogma, although it's stressed that the title won't be open world. The forum post itself goes into more depth, so give that a read if you really want to get your hype pumping,
As always, though, we have to point out that this is still just a post on an internet forum. It may turn out to be correct, or it may end up being complete nonsense. We don't know. It's worth keeping in mind, however, that the user in question will receive a permanent ban over on ResetEra if the information is found to be false. That factor perhaps adds some weight to the claims.
What do you make of all this? Are you ready for a new Devil May Cry? Do you believe the rumours? Pull off some mad combos in the comments section below.
Praise Mundus if this turns out to be true. DMC1 Mundus not the other DmC abomination.
I really couldn't care less about DMC but if a new Soul Calibur was really coming it would make me very, very happy.
I’ve only played DMC 4. I like what I played but I never played Dragon Dogma. Would DMC going the Dragon Dogma route be a good thing?
That's an awful lot of detail for a rumor.
"Sony took note of fan feedback after its E3 press conference this year, and thus has decided to scale back PSX 2017."
Who did they ask? No way would a hardcore PS fan ask Sony to scale back the psx presser. Theres just no way.
The number 5 leads me to believe it'll be OG Dante and not the reboot one. That's a good thing.
If it's true, PSX or not I'd just be happy to see a new DMC. It's been some time since we had anything new. Especially from the "real" DMC.
@YummyHappyPills Nah, probably not, Capcom releases for everything.
I still need to play more games of the series, so i'm not the best person to talk about Devil May Cry, but i really didn't like DmC (the last game), let's hope for a great game this time. I still need to play Devil May Cry 4 on PS4.
Cool story, a new DMC (not reboot) is always welcome!
"Supposedly, Sony took note of fan feedback after its E3 press conference this year, and thus has decided to scale back PSX 2017."
Feedback but definitely not from us fans.
I have one of the dmc games for PS4, i forget which one though as I've never really played it. Which one is the best on the PS4, i loved the first one and would like to play another good entry in the series.
Couldn't care less about 'some sort of exclusivity.' As long as it's on PS4 then who cares where else it goes? If there's a Switch version, I'll double dip.
DMC 4 Special Edition is the better one.
@Gamer83 thx, I'll have to check my library and see which one i have
@themcnoisy I think people complained mainly about the fact that they didn't have a lot of new games to show. Most of it was games we already knew about. Announcing a bunch of 2019/2020 games at PSX isn't going to solve that issue and we end up with the same problem at E3 2018. They've got enough games for 2018 if none of them are delayed, so there's no point in announcing a bunch of new stuff, except for the sake of announcing it. I can wait.
if it stars Dante and it's about escaping from Hell as that's where he was left at the end on DMC2 then that would be perfect
also Nero showing up to help would be nice AND confirming Nero is Vergils son in game would be cool too (even though the developers have already said he is, in game confirmation would be nice)
OH and Reuben Langdon HAS to be the one playing him, THAT is a must
I know most people feel differently but for me DmC > any other Devil may Cry game. The reboot was one of he best games I've ever played. Shame we most likely won't see a sequel.
@Octane If i get the games of the first quarter then i have enough to play for the rest of the year how can that not be enough?
@PS_Nation When you consider Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate all the way through to XX being Nintendo only, and Street Fighter V being a PlayStation exclusive, it’s baffling how you came up with that response.
@Flaming_Kaiser That's the problem, they already have enougb games for 2018, and that's without some possible 2019 titles like TLOU2 and Ghost of Tsushima. What's in it for them to reveal late 2019 or 2020 games right now? It's still 2017. You end up with three consecutive E3 shows showing the same games. I wouldn't mind if they revealed little to no games at PSX if that means new games get revealed closer to their release date.
@naruball the game played well and had a lot of interesting concepts but the main issue most people had with it was they way the characters were done (and i'm not talking about Dantes hair colour), there was nothing of the old characters in the new ones, New Dante was a whiny ass who thought flipping the bird and swearing was cool and New Vergil was a straight up d***head where as the original Dante was a wisecracking, pizza loving bad ass and Vergil at least had some honour and motivation for his actions
Bout time Capcom start making new games instead of remaster old ones.
@FullbringIchigo I wouldn't say nothing, but sure they were different. After all, he wasn't supposed to be the same person he became later on in life. His humour evolved so it was nice to see the difference. I know many people who look at old facebook posts and videos and cringe. I don't see why Dante would be any different. He started as a smartass and then matured a bit over the years.
As for him being whiny, I didn't see it at all.
@naruball He and Vergil compared **** sizes, thats enough for me never to want to touch that game again, no matter how good the gameplay bosses. Very forgettable bosses in the reboot i thought as well though
@SuperSilverback I don't see the big deal. Teenagers do tend to do that. Especially cocky one like Dante. I mean, we play video games where we actually kill people, comparing penis sizes doesn't seem that weird to me.
At any rate, everyone is entitled to their opinion and if you don't like it, it makes sense to not want to bother with a potential sequel.
@Starbuster00 SF V is also on PC, It's not a real exclusive. I was thinking about recent games like Resident Evil 7 and the new Monster Hunter. I wouldn't blame Capcom if they not release the new Devil May Cry on Xbox, It's a waste of time to release Japanese games on that platform.
@ellsworth004 Devil May Cry 4 on the PS4 is the one I recomend
@xXDibbs @ellsworth004 same here DMC4 is a brilliant game although they STILL didn't fix the issue with the voice volume. it's still far too low just like in the original release
@Octane I still need to play 30 plus games i just dont have the time and im a idiot i keep buying rpg's. 😉
@FullbringIchigo my home theater fixed that one
