The lights are on
Capcom publishes and develops some of the best video game series in the industry; Resident Evil, Mega Man, Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Bionic Commando, Marvel vs. Capcom… the list goes on. According to a recent podcast, Capcom is going to be dropping a huge sequel bombshell at E3.Capcom’s trust with Western developers has been sketchy in the past, but they’ve publicly stated that no new IPs will be handled by Western devs. The company will be trusting Western developers with established RPs, however. Speaking about the next big Western-developed Capcom sequel on the Weekend Confirmed podcast, Garnett Lee said "Boy, their E3 bombshell puts that to test. I'm not going to spill it because I don't want to make anyone mad, but boy their E3 bombshell puts that to test."We've got a sneaking suspicion that the news involves a new Devil May Cry game developed by Heavenly Sword developer, Ninja Theory. In Game Informer issue #205, we reported chatter that the Cambridge, England-based studio is being tapped by Capcom to craft Dante's next adventure. Is Ninja Theory the the Western dev that Capcom is "putting to the test?"

Devil May Cry 5, I better play through the first 4 quick. But I have a greater suspicion that it will be Mega Man 37 or whatever the last one was, I believe it's this because that would be a cooler bombshell than DMC. I've been wrong before however.
capcom doesnt trust western devs? thats not cool...
I hope it isn't Devil May Cry... I am kinda tired of Dante. He's not as cool as he was.
Hopefully, it is by NT and it is a reboot of sorts.
wow, really, another dmc, virgil is dead, nero (or what ever his name is) is lame, what can they really do with this, other than a sequel to that awful dmc2
Another DMC for me to get a few hours into then... never seem to get around to finishing - the series never struck a cord with me, I guess.
Looking forward to it
Hope its better than Heavenly Sword was !!!
that would sure be exciting! if it IS a DMC gaem, please make it more like the old-school games, with Dante as the protagonist! more outrageous stunts and terrible lingo full of snappy one-liners is what we need lol. Capcom sure has been busy lately
hell yeah, a new DMC would be awesome. 4 had such a climactic, epic ending
capcom has really gone down hill in the past few monthes.
YES! but a word of advice, no more side characters. when i play a DMC game, i want to control Dante and only Dante! and Ninja Theory? i don't think so, or better put, i don't want them to! Heavenly Sword was okay at best and their other title, Enslaved, looks to be heading down that same road. hows about Capcom make a deal with Platinum Games to make the next DMC game! they did an awesome job with Bayonetta plus some of the guys there helped create the original DMC.
If NT develops it, and its anything like Ninja Gaiden I'll play it.
That would be dope, but why is Capcom outsourcing so much? They don't seem to be developing a whole hell of a lot stuff internally....
