Vergil

Devil May Cry 5 Has Ceased Development and There Is No More Content Planned

15 posts in this topic

Matt Walker, one of the producers for Devil May Cry 5, took to Twitter to answer questions from fans about the game. Unfortunately, some of the answers dash hopes about more playable characters. When asked about possible Devil May Cry 5 DLC that would make characters like Lady and Trish playable, Walker confirmed that Capcom has finished development on the game. In another comment, he confirmed that no more content is planned.

 

Here is the first comment from Walker on Devil May Cry 5 DLC, where he said he would have liked to have seen “the ladies playable too.”

 

 

 

The follow-up comment was in response to someone asking about a playable version of Vergil. Here, Walker specifically said, “Unfortunately we don’t plan on adding any more content to DMC5.” In this comment, he also noted that Resident Evil 2 was a success and he hopes to see more games in the series.

 

 

 

In other comments, Walker talked about other people who appeared, or rather didn’t appear, in Devil May Cry 5. First, when it came to Kyrie, she didn’t appear physically because it wasn’t in the budget.

 

 

 

As for Vergil, Walker explained that he doesn’t look the way people may expect due to time spent in another realm.

 

 

 

Sadly, Walker’s talk with fans didn’t reveal any details about the upcoming Devil May Cry anime series. As people may recall, Adi Shankar announced in November 2018 that he is working on a Devil May Cry series. When someone asked if it would be connected to Devil May Cry 5, Walker noted that he had no information to share.

 

 

 

Devil May Cry 5 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Wow, that's kind of a prick job.

 

Normally, the trade off for micro transactions being in a game is increased support for that game. Not everyone sees that as a fair trade but it is what it is. Micro transactions with nothing in return? That's a level of scum baggery usually reserved for WB games and NetherRealm. Even EA doesn't sink that low lol.

Good. They made a game. They released the game. Now they're going to make a different game. That's what I like to see. Hopefully more developers start doing this again.

AMEN!!!

RIP to being able to play as Vergil and having actual co-op then. Oh well, it was a fantastic game anyway and it was nice to be able to experience it after waiting so long.

 

Now can we please, please have Dragon's Dogma 2?

I'm with you on that. No need to tack on content that lowers the overall quality of the product. No need to "support" a game with IAP/DLC that's mostly bug free. The sooner the talent can start on something new the better. I definitely don't need the entire cast playable. That is easier said than done, entire moveset with animation and balancing and sub mission/side stories. No thanks.

Love it. Can you really say you'd rather have a dev continue making half-baked and rushed smatterings of "new" gameplay with reused assets and mechanics (let's face it, this is what DLC typically is), or a brand-spanking new game, with fresh ideas and elements? And hey, a whole new trophy list doesn't sound bad either, huh?

 

More devs should follow their example. Developers face enough brutal deadlines and commitments as it is, with game quality often suffering for it. Make a good game, and then make the next one... even better, if you can!

I was really hoping to see Vergil too...

 

Other than additional playable characters I don't think there was much left to add after the Bloody Palace mode. I'm still enjoying the game and hopefully that'll still be the case a long time from now.

Yea I agree, even though i really want DLC there is not much more that needs to be added in this game.

Why not a red leather coat, instead of a lousy t-shirt?
