For the past couple of years, rumors have been swirling about a possible Devil May Cry 5, but there has yet to be any official announcement on the part of Capcom. However, that hasn’t stopped people from speculating about what form the next game in the series will take, including Devil May Cry creator Hideki Kamiya, who took to Twitter to express his thoughts on Devil May Cry 5 earlier today.

Kamiya feels as though it’s time for Devil May Cry to undergo a “full model change” with Devil May Cry 5, like what we are seeing with the new God of War. Kamiya went as far as to say that instead of an “anime-style hack ‘n’ slash,” that Devil May Cry should be “realistic” and “cinematic.”

Kamiya is not shy about sharing his opinions on social media, no matter how controversial they may be. And considering the significant backlash that DmC: Devil May Cry suffered for the changes it made to the franchise, Kamiya’s thoughts on the direction the series should take is likely to upset some fans. After all, Kamiya is basically calling for Devil May Cry to become something completely different.

Before fans become too upset that Capcom may take Kamiya’s advice, there’s already evidence that suggests Devil May Cry 5 is well into development and will be very similar to the first four games in the series. In fact, leaked story details have suggested that Devil May Cry 5 may outright ignore the events of DmC: Devil May Cry and pick up where Devil May Cry 4 left off.

While the leaked info suggests that Kamiya’s vision for Devil May Cry 5 won’t come to pass, that doesn’t mean there won’t be big changes to the series. If the leaked information is to be believed, Devil May Cry 5 will feature larger environments and a bigger focus on boss battles than past games. Whether or not any of this is true remains to be seen, but if Devil May Cry 5 does exist and is Hideaki Itsuno’s next game as speculated, expect an official announcement sooner rather than later.

Devil May Cry 5 is rumored to be in development for unspecified consoles.
