Capcom registers Devil May Cry 5 domain


Capcom has registered a domain name for Devil May Cry 5, suggesting the fifth instalment of the much-loved action-adventure franchise could well be unveiled at this year’s E3 Show.

The domain name was registered on May 17, via the Onamae domain registrar that Capcom has previously used for its Monster Hunter World and Resident Evil 7 websites. The most recent iteration of the game – the rebooted DmC, developed by British studio Ninja Theory – came out in 2013, so it would appear to be high time for the franchise to make a return.

Fans of the series’ main protagonist Dante, and its appealing mix of action and demon-fighting originally inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, have had to make do with HD remasters of the series in recent years, culminating in this March’s Devil May Cry HD Collection. But above all, they crave a full fifth instalment of the series.

Hopefully, that will make its first public appearance at the imminent E3 Show in Los Angeles. As ever, we’ll keep you updated with developments.
