Leaks are iffy at best. You have to take them with a grain of salt as they may or may not turn out to be true or things might change. This particular leak is fairly convincing though. Whether it’s true or not remains to be seen but if it is, it’s very exciting news for fans of the original Devil May Cry series.
Over at the forum RestEra, user Son of Sparda made a post that contains a huge list of leaks for what is supposedly the next Devil May Cry game. There is a lot of information in the post which is one reason this rumor is fairly convincing. There is quite a lot of information so I’ll refrain from pasting it all here.
The general gist of the post is that Devil May Cry 5 (titled Devil May Cry V apparently) is a direct sequel to the original series following shortly after Devil May Cry 4. So it’s not related to the reboot that came out in 2013. It’s supposed to release sometime in 2019 and is going to have some sort exclusivity to the Playstation console. There is also info on the gameplay, development progress, and some of the story (including other playable characters).
Altogether this has a ton of info and if it’s true it’s a huge leak. The amount of info is one of the reasons I’m leaning towards this being true. Another reason it seems true is that the user worked with the moderators to make this post with the caveat of a getting permanent ban if it’s all a hoax. They seem pretty legit in the post as well in the way they talk.
Whether this is all true or not remains to be seen. If they do an announcement it’s likely to be at the Playstation Experience that is coming on the 9th and 10th of December. Personally, I’m hoping this turns out to be true. Devil May Cry was one of my favorite series up until Devil May Cry 4 (still a good game, I just didn’t get into it). The reboot, DMC, was a fun game but I wasn’t entirely happy with the changes.
Here’s hoping this is a true and that we’ll find out next month. It would be interesting to see a Devil May Cry game with updated gameplay.
What do you think of this leak? Do you think it’s true? If so, are you excited?
