While Devil May Cry 5 hasn't been officially announced by either Capcom or any of its developers, there have been 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, although this information is entirely unconfirmed as of right now.
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.
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.
But do we have any official word on the game from Capcom themselves? As far as concrete statements go, the answer is unfortunetely no, but we do have the tweet just below from none other than Hideaki Itsuno himself, stating that his game is nearing the end of the development road:
Happy new year!- Hideaki Itsuno (@tomqe) December 31, 2017
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.
As for the supposed voice actors behind the characters of Devil May Cry 5, Rueben Langdon is slated to be reprising his role of Dante, Johnny Young Bosch is returning as Nero, and Dan Southworth is supposedly playing Vergil. What there isn't any word on is whether Trish or Lady will be returning for Devil May Cry 5, but we'll make sure to keep an ear out for any additional information.
Devil May Cry 5 Gameplay Details
We mentioned that Dante, Nero, and Vergil are all slated 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.
Devil May Cry 5 is said to pick up right after the story of Devil May Cry 4, and the "Prince of Darkness" is apparently the primary antagonist of the game, although whether this is Mundus or another character who now bears the title is unknown right now. The upcoming game is also said to end the "sons of Sparda" storyline, but we know precious little else about this.
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, and at the current time, it doesn't seem as though the game will be coming to the Xbox One.
As of right now, these are all the supposed details we have on Devil May Cry 5, thanks to the large, but unconfirmed, ResetEra leak. We'll make sure to keep this guide updated however, so that whenever Capcom announces anything official on the game, you'll be able to read about it here straight away.
