Solid DMC4 Sales Should Clear Path For Devil May Cry 5

Devil May Cry 4 was both a critical and financial success when it released earlier this year, which means we can probably expect to see a fifth entry at some point.

Capcom has just revealed that their fiscal 2008 sales increased to over 83 billion yen (about $806 million), and DMC4 was a major part of that boost: it has now sold over 2 million copies worldwide since its February launch. At last year's E3, series producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi said that they need Capcom's go-ahead before his team could start working on any new DMC installments, and with these recent positive numbers, there's really no good reason for the publisher to put a stop to this profitable franchise. Last year, Kobayashi had this to say-

"...personally I would like to continue with Devil May Cry and create more and more games for this franchise. Devil May Cry 4 has turned out to be a very cool-looking stylish game for those that have a PS3 or a [Xbox] 360. If you donít buy Devil May Cry 4 you would think ĎWhy didnít I buy it?í Thereís no worth of having a PS3 or [Xbox] 360 without Devil May Cry 4. Thatís the kind of game itís going to turn out to be." (source- VideoGamesBlogger)

Well, DMC4 is certainly one of our favorite games of the generation so far, so if Capcom made Devil May Cry 5, we wouldn't complain. Hell, we'd consider confirmation of a fifth DMC as very, very happy news.
