Devil May Cry 5 has now been officially announced by Capcom after there were rumors swirling throughout the industry for some time. In the guide just below, we'll be rounding up all the Devil May Cry 5 rumors that we know of so far, as well as pointing out which information could be false, and which could be factual.
Devil May Cry 5 Release Date
A supposed leak for Devil May Cry 5, first posted on ResetEra back in late November 2017, claimed that the game has already entered full production, and is currently due to be released at any point in the 2019 fiscal year. This actually means that according to the leak, the Devil May Cry 5 release date could theoretically be any point between April 2018 and March 2019.
Additionally, the ResetEra leak claimed that Devil May Cry 5 was originally intended to be revealed by Sony at PSX in December 2017, but has been pushed back to E3 2018. The leak also claimed that the game was initially targeting a release window of November 2018, but has been pushed back into the early months of 2019, which would still fit into the fiscal year of 2019.
This was confirmed during Microsoft's Xbox E3 2018 press conference, with a Spring 2019 release date given.
Devil May Cry 5 Development Team
But what does the massive ResetEra leak have to say about the development team behind Devil May Cry 5. The leak claims that Hideaki Itsuno's team, who previously worked on the Devil May Cry series as well as Dragon's Dogma, are behind the development of Devil May Cry 5, and that Yuji Shimomura, who previously worked on cutscenes for Devil May Cry and Bayonetta, is returning for the upcoming game. Capcom confirmed this during E3 2018, at the Xbox Press Conference.

I am sorry that I can not present a new project last year. The development of the project is now under climax. I am making a great game so please expect it.
Devil May Cry 5 Gameplay Details
Dante, Nero, and Vergil are all confirmed to be returning for Devil May Cry 5, and the ResetEra leak also claims that all three characters will be playable in some form. Whether this means switching back and forth between characters, or having sections of the game dedicated to specific characters, we're still unsure of. We'll likely be getting more gameplay details very soon.
Devil May Cry 5 has now been confirmed to pick up right after the story of Devil May Cry 4, and the "Prince of Darkness" is the primary antagonist of the game. Nero has been confirmed as a playable character.
What Platforms is Devil May Cry 5 Coming to?
In addition to all this, Devil May Cry 5 is launching for PlayStation 4, and apparently coming to PC at a later date. The game is targeting 60 frames per second for consoles, it will also be making its way to Xbox One, after debuting on the Microsoft E3 2018 Press Conference.
As of right now, these are all the details we have on Devil May Cry 5, thanks to the large, but unconfirmed, ResetEra leak, as well as the official details revealed during Xbox's E3 2018 conference. We'll make sure to keep this guide updated as we learn more
