Devil May Cry 5 Director Wants To See Ninja Theory Make DmC 2

Devil May Cry 5 Director Wants To See Ninja Theory Make DmC 2

Richard Walker

Not for the first time, Devil May Cry 5 Director Hideaki Itsuno has expressed his desire to see a DmC 2; a true sequel to Ninja Theory's 2013 effort DmC: Devil May Cry. Previously, Itsuno has stated that he would have liked to make DmC 2 himself, but circumstances meant that Capcom ended up making Devil May Cry 5 in-house.

Now Itsuno has said that he'd like to see Ninja Theory work on a DmC 2. "On the dev side we certainly wanted to and thought we would work with Ninja Theory again to create a sequel to DmC, but that unfortunately didn't get off the ground," Itsuno commented. "It wouldn't be DmC without Ninja Theory," Devil May Cry 5 Producer Matt Walker added (via USgamer).

Could it be possible for DmC and the mainline Devil May Cry games to co-exist? While DmC wasn't particularly well-received by some fans, it was lauded by critics (including us) for its fast-paced and frenetic combat. "We'd still love to see a sequel," said Walker, "but we think it absolutely has to be made by Ninja Theory - so much of the amazing style and substance in that game was only possible because they have such a knack for what's cool."

Ninja Theory is now wholly owned by Microsoft and forms part of the company's Xbox Game Studios, so the possibility of the UK developer making a new DmC certainly seems remote. For now, we have Devil May Cry 5, which proved to be a sensational series entry. Maybe a Devil May Cry 6 would be nice. DmC 2, though? We wouldn't be opposed to that idea either.

  • A devil may cry title exclusive to Xbox would be the only reason I would own a Microsoft console, so let's hope that, although I thought Ninja Theory's DmC was awesome, that they won't ever make it as no way would it be on PlayStation now that Microsoft owns them.
  • please dont. it sucked ass.
  • NOOOO!!! Burn it with FIRE!!!
  • No it didn't suck. It was actually good. People just couldn't get over the fact that Dante didn't look like the Dante they're used to. Anyway, making a DmC that's exclusive to Xbox could spell trouble seeing as DMC has always been on PlayStation. Hell it was on PS systems first. That's how the world got introduced to it. I have an Xbox, so I wouldn't miss anything. I would feel bad for those who stick with just one console.
  • The humour in that game was childish, as was the behaviour of the devs towards fans, so no thanks.
  • DmC would probably be considered good if they didnt use dmc characters. Gameplay was fun but I really didnt like what they did to dante and vergil.
  • DmC2? Only if you make it on playstation.. xBoxO has shooting games... Playstation got swords and super powers... i love swords and super powers...
  • I'm sure it would launch for both consoles. Just like Minecraft, We happy few and The Outer Worlds. I would be fine with another game because I love the action hack'n'slash genre.
  • @4 no, it actually sucked, and it had nothing to do with how Dante looked or how childish and egocentric the game director was, the gameplay was basic, the story was awful and the characters where atrocious, it had a brilliant level design and set pieces though. Bottom line is, the world needs to forget that abomination ever existed, either it's called DMC or not.

  • Just because MS own Ninja Theory I can't see them blocking it for multiple consoles yes it would be a great exclusive but on the other hand they would want there investment money to come back quickly. And releasing it Multi platform would be the best bet but again I would have to backtrack on my words because MS have really sucked this gen, I've never once not once wanted to get a XB1 since it's launch and I've still no reason to now.
  • This is literally the worst idea I've read in years. DmC was a disgrace and deserves to rot and be forgotten. Fuck Ninja Theory, their unprofessional behavior towards criticism, fuck Tameem, and fuck anyone even thinking this is good news. We waited 11 years for a sequel to DMC4, and now that we got it they wanna entertain a future for that shitty reboot? No. Fuck that.
  • And yeah, cringy edgy western sleaziness sure is "cool," Matt Walker...
  • I hope they will work on a Devil May Cry 6 with Dante, Nero and Vergil together. But NOT DmC2 please!!! That game is so horrible that I haven't even been able to watch the cutscenes! The graphics were horrible, the story terrible and those two ARE NOT Dante and Vergil!!! The real Dante and Vergil would say: "We are not so hideous! Can't you tell looking at us?" (DMC3 quote)
