Devil May Cry 5 Domain Shifted To Capcom Servers – E3 Announcement Inbound?
Many of you may remember the Devil May Cry 5 leak from earlier this week that revealed a retail listing for the highly-anticipated title. In addition to that, a domain was also registered, leading players to believe a game was coming. Now, that very domain has been moved to Capcom’s servers.
Twitter user Punished Mystic, a regular old gumshoe, made the discovery recently and posted their findings to the social media site. Upon the domain’s registration, going to the same web address would provide you with nothing. Well, it would just say that nothing exists. However, now that things have shifted over to Capcom’s servers, a 404 page pops up.
If you go to https://t.co/r9ogy4bS8L with the "www" included, you will now be redirected to a 404 page. The site has an IP and is hosted on an AWS server with IPV4 and IPv6 addresses. It's happening. It's beyond a done deal.

Needless to say, this is not just your average rumor. Now that the domain is traceable back to Capcom, it basically confirms the title’s existence, right? Either way, all of this is seemingly pointing to an upcoming announcement. Maybe they plan on doing this at the biggest event of the year. After all, E3 is merely a few days away, and this would be the perfect time to get fans pumped. Especially if previous leaks claiming an early 2019 launch are to be believed. Here’s more from that massive leak:
- The game is slated to release some time in the fiscal calendar year of 2019. That means sometime between April 2018 and March 2019. Original plan was to release it in November 2018 but the date MIGHT have been pushed back to early 2019.
- Originally DMCV was intended to be announced at PSX but after receiving feedback on their E3 press conference, Sony decided to scale back on PSX and instead scale up E3 2018. DMCV was an unfortunate casualty of this choice and thus it’s unlikely that DMCV gets officially revealed in 2017.
- There will be a demo for the game sometime before release.
- Game has been in development for 2 years as of today. When it will release it will have been in development for 3 years at least. That is actually the highest time a DMC game has been in full production for. Pre-production started as early as 2015 around the time that DMC4SE finished releasing. There have been no development hiccups and as stated, the development has in fact been progressing smoothly.
- There is some form of Playstation exclusivity involved. Sony is paying for some of the funding for the game but the extent of it is not known. Could be completely PS4 exclusive, console exclusive or timed exclusive. If the game is announced publicly then it will be at a Sony event, which is why many people thought that it was going to be at PSX.
We can’t say what is happening in the Capcom camp, but everything is pointing to a Devil May Cry 5 announcement. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as our eyes remain peeled for the latest DMC news, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
