News - Devil May Cry 5 Director Would Like DmC 2, But Only From Ninja Theory

Devil May Cry 5 Director Would Like DmC 2, But Only From Ninja Theory

While it was controversial with series fans from the moment it was announced, DmC: Devil May Cry was largely well-received by critics. Positive review scores aren't the only beacon of good fortune for the divisive entry in the hack 'n' slash franchise, however, as Hideaki Itsuno, the director of multiple Devil May Cry titles, would love a sequel.

According to a report from USGamer, Itsuno--who's worked also worked on multiple other Capcom games including Power Stone, Capcom Vs. SNK 2, and Dragon's Dogma--would have no problem with a DmC 2. But there's a catch: for Itsuno, British developer Ninja Theory has to be on the project again. Otherwise, as Capcom producer Matt Walker added, "It wouldn't be DmC without Ninja Theory."

"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," said Itsuno, who expressed interest in a sequel.

Walker agreed with the sentiment, saying, "We'd still love to see a sequel, 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."

Apart from DmC, Ninja Theory is most known for developing action games such as Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Heavenly Sword, and the critically-acclaimed Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice (which recently made the jump to Nintendo Switch). Ninja Theory was acquired by Microsoft and folded into the company's Xbox Game Studios in 2018, meaning if a DmC sequel were to happen, it'd require Microsoft's blessing to be multiplatform or end up an Xbox and PC exclusive.

In our DmC: Definitive Edition review, we said that the "numerous tweaks and upgrades of DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition have made a game that isn't just a better version of DmC, but a bonafide hack 'n' slash classic."

While a DmC 2 may not be in the works any time soon, fans of the action franchise recently got Devil May Cry 5 to tide them over, which we awarded a 9/10.
