Ahead of E3 2018, it was speculated that Capcom could announce Devil May Cry 5 at the event. This was due to a domain that was registered. For those who have enjoyed the Devil May Cry franchise, the good news is that it looks like the latest title in the franchise has since been officially announced.
According to the announcement, Devil May Cry 5 will be a “true follow-up” to Devil May Cry 4 which was released way back in 2008, so it’s not surprising that fans have been waiting a very, very long time for the game. This means that unlike the spin-offs, this will pretty much pick up where the previous game left off and will see the return of the original characters and storylines.
“Years have passed since the events of Devil May Cry 4, and a lot has happened. Young demon hunter Nero has lost his Devil Bringer demon arm… but hey! He’s now heading his own branch of the demon-hunting business Devil May Cry. To make up for that lost arm, and keep his style rankings up, he’s enlisted the help of expert craftswoman Nico, a brand new character in the series, to lend a hand and build different types of prosthetic arms that unlock new badass combat abilities and devastating powers.”
Devil May Cry 5 is currently set for a release in the spring of 2019 where it will be available for the Xbox One, PS4, and the PC. We expect that specific release dates will most likely come at a later date.
