Devil May Cry Returns with First Official Sequel in a Decade

It's been ten long years since Devil May Cry 4, the final entry in Capcom's over-the-top gothic action franchise. Although some fans were sated by the 2013 reboot, developed by Ninja Theory, many brushed it aside, awaiting a proper return for Dante, Nero, and the rest of the gang.


Finally, Devil May Cry 5 has been announced. Hideaki Itsuno, director of DMC3 and 4 (as well as the cult favorite, Dragon's Dogma), has returned to helm a brand new entry in the original Devil May Cry continuity. An eye-popping new trailer showcased all the crazy action, demonic insanity, and charismatic swagger fans have come to expect from the series, all with an extra coat of next-gen paint, courtesy of the current suite of gaming consoles.


The game will feature three lead characters: Nero, returning from DMC4, who has lost his arm and is seeking revenge, series stalwart Dante, who rides in on a cool motorcycle and brandishing a grizzly beard, and a third character, who has yet to be properly revealed. Devil May Cry is a series which prides itself on unbridled cinematic action and an unmatched sense of style. This upcoming fifth chapter has been a long time coming, but Dante and Nero are playing it cool, as though they had never left.



Devil May Cry 5 is currently on track for a Spring 2019 release.
