Hey Capcom, Where's My New Devil May Cry Title?
I think all action fans everywhere have been wondering the same thing: "where the hell is Devil May Cry 5?"
Devil May Cry 4 came out well over two years ago and since, we haven't heard hide nor hair from the cocky hero. DMC remains my second-favorite action series next to God of War and although I believe Bayonetta boasts the most impressive combat mechanic of the generation, DMC4 was just more accessible to me. I believe the game sold relatively well and like most entries in the illustrious series, it was quite popular with the fans. Therefore, I'm wondering why we haven't heard a peep about another DMC installment; if it existed at all, one would think we'd have heard about it through whispers and rumors. And yet...nothing. I know they've previously had their hands full with stuff like Resident Evil 5, and I know they're still working to push Lost Planet 2 out the door, but no DMC? Really? Okay, so Monster Hunter is a crazy lucrative series, which is why another one is hitting the PSP in Japan soon (Monster Hunter Freedom 3), but are you really going to ignore all those die-hard Dante followers?
In looking at the upcoming lineup of games and perusing the news, I only just realized that a major title seems to be missing. DMC5 would really be huge and we can always hold out hope for an E3 announcement but really, we've heard absolutely nothing. Who stops at 4, anyway?
