Devil May Cry 5 Will Learn A Lot From DmC, Says Capcom

Devil May Cry 5 Will Learn A Lot From DmC, Says Creator

DmC: Devil May Cry represented a divisive departure from the tried and tested DMC formula, one that drew ire as it was not a direct sequel to Devil May Cry 4. Now that Devil May Cry 5 is officially on its way, though, fans of the franchise are beginning to wonder how much – or how little – inspiration Capcom is taking from Ninja Theory’s take on the game.

While many would assume that the one-off would be quickly forgotten by Capcom, the publisher is reportedly proud of DmC, and according to Capcom Producer Matt Walker, the upcoming arrival of Devil May Cry 5 “isn’t a slight at Ninja Theory or DmC at all,” he revealed to VG247. “We all love DmC.” So too does Game Director Hideaki Itsuno, who worked with the rest of the DMC team and Ninja Theory to develop the game. “Itsuno-san himself has explicitly stated that in his mind, DmC is just as important as any of the other titles in the series, and he’s just as proud of it,” Walker said.

That game [DmC] had an amazing world all its own, that could only have been produced by the amazing artists and imaginations at Ninja Theory.”

“We learned a lot from working with Ninja Theory on that title, and we hope that they benefited in some way as well,” Walker revealed. “Itsuno-san has stressed several times in conversations with me that he’s taken what he’s learned from working on DmC and applied what he’s learned specifically to what we’ve done on DMC5.”

It will be interesting to see the fruits of their labor when more details surface for Devil may Cry 5. The title is expected to arrive in early 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
