Devil May Cry 5 Development Finished, No Plans for Vergil or Ladies Night DLC

It's the end of the road for Devil May Cry 5.

Devil May Cry 5 has capped off an incredible beginning to 2019 for Capcom. Unfortunately for fans hoping for more Devil May Cry 5, development on the title is finished and anyone hoping to play as Vergil, Lady, or Trish will be disappointed.

In a series of written responses on Twitter, Devil May Cry 5 producer Matt Walker confirmed that development on Devil May Cry 5 has ended. That means any rumored DLC like a playable Vergil, or the purported "Ladies Night" DLC that would allow players to play as Lady and Trish, aren't in development.

That's a shame considering Devil May Cry 5 is one of the best games in the series, and it would have been nice to try out the game's combat system with other characters. Alas, this is not meant to be, at least for Devil May Cry 5.

There's no word as to why further DLC for Devil May Cry 5 isn't in development. The only content released for the game post-launch was the Bloody Palace challenge DLC. However, the news that development on Devil May Cry 5 has wrapped may not be a huge surprise considering its director, Hideaki Itsuno, and the rest of the game's dev team are working on a new project.

Devil May Cry 5 was critically acclaimed at launch and sold 2 million copies in just two weeks. It did face stiff competition in its March release date however, coming in behind The Division 2, Sekiro, and MLB 19: The Show.

Still, fans waited a long time for a new Devil May Cry game from Capcom, and the one they got proved to be a truly great one. Check out our Devil May Cry 5 guide for our tips and walkthrough.
