Although Ninja Theory was panned by Capcom’s biggest fans back in 2013, the publisher has said they still want a DmC: Devil May Cry sequel.
Capcom released Devil May Cry 5 this year to a raucous ovation, but the publisher/developer has reiterated that they would “still love to see a sequel” to the divisive DmC: Devil May Cry reboot.
DmC: Devil May Cry was released back in 2013 and a lot of Capcom’s fans loathed it because of how Ninja Theory turned Dante into an emo straight out of Black Veil Brides.
So – for me at least – it’s nice to hear that Capcom are still open to doing a sequel with Ninja Theory.
Capcom would “still love to see a sequel” to DmC: Devil May Cry
Speaking to Feed4Gamers, Devil May Cry 5 producer Matt Walkers mentioned how Capcom is still open to a DmC sequel provided Ninja Theory remains the developers.
“We’d still love to see a sequel, but we think it absolutely has to be made by Ninja Theory,” Walkers said. “So much of the amazing style and substance in that game was only possible because they have such a knack for what’s cool. It wouldn’t be DmC without Ninja Theory.”
If you’re wondering what Devil May Cry 5 director Hideaki Itsuno thinks about this notion, then you should know that he echoed a similar statement just last year.
While a sequel would be fantastic as the reboot was underrated and overly criticised by blinded fans, it’s highly unlikely to ever happen as Microsoft purchased Ninja Theory in 2018. This means that any DmC Devil May Cry sequel would most definitely have to be an Xbox One exclusive.
