It's been nine years since the last installment of the Devil May Cry series, and though Capcom has acknowledged the fan-base from time to time with 2012's DmC: Devil May Cry as well as a special edition for the fourth game back in 2015, there are still those waiting for Devil May Cry 5. Though no solid confirmation has been made at this point, a new rumor has surfaced online stating that the new Devil May Cry game is almost ready, and that it will be revealed to the world at this year's PlayStation Experience (PSX).
The California-based event, which will run from December 9-10, is set to host a range of announcements and features for PlayStation fans across the globe to enjoy, with Devil May Cry 5 possibly being among them. User DasVergeben on Reddit leaked the reveal early as part of a huge leak post spanning many upcoming titles and DLC plans. After announcing that Devil May Cry 5's reveal will be coming to PSX, the user continued on to say that Dante, Vergil, and Nero will all be playable characters in the game, though this might not be a part of PlayStation's presentation on the title.
Although there is no evidence shown to back up the user's claims, this new information comes from the same leaker that correctly predicted yesterday's Injustice DLC pack reveal which is set to bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to DC's signature fighting game. Another game that DasVergeben claims will be coming to PSX is the long-awaited announcement of Soul Caliber VI, which the user reveals should be appearing on the game's 21st anniversary.
The Devil May Cry prediction doesn't seem entirely off-base at least, especially considering that the game has been rumored for years at this point. In 2016, we saw voice actor Nils Hognestad list the unannounced title as part of their past experience work, referencing himself as the lead role in the game.
In addition, earlier this year Devil May Cry director Hideaki Itsuno apologized for not revealing anything at E3 2017, updating fans that their next game was 'progressing smoothly'. Itsuno, who was responsible for Devil May Cry 2 through 4, is likely a top choice to head up the series' fifth installment and fans are all but certain that the director is referring the sequel with his message.
