Another domain name has been registered by Capcom, this time for Devil May Cry 5.
According to findings first posted on ResetEra, the domain name of devilmaycry5.com was registered last month on May 18th. The domain name was registered by GMO Internet Inc. and Onamae.com, Japanese internet providers who has previously registered several games for Capcom in the past, including Monster Hunter World and around the same time as Devil May Cry 5, updating the registration on the website Resident Evil 2.
Capcom announced almost three years ago that a remake of Resident Evil 2 was in development.
“You’ve been telling us for years that you want Resident Evil 2 to be remade,” said producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi back in 2015. “We haven’t been able to make it happen…until now!”
Devil May Cry 5, out of all of the games registered thus far, has next to no information about it revealed. Gematsu also reported that the domain names for Devilmaycry6, Devilmaycry8 and Devilmaycry9 were also registered under the company Onamae as well, meaning that whoever is registering these domain names is likely doing so on the behest of Capcom for ownership.
The last time Devil May Cry made an appearance was the DmC: Devil May Cry reboot back in 2013. The reboot met with a mixed reception from fans but would go on to sell over 1.8 million copies worldwide. A definitive edition of the game would be released in 2015.
While it is unconfirmed at this time, it is possible Devil May Cry 5 will make an appearance at E3 this year, although where or when at E3 is anyone’s guess as Capcom does not have a scheduled conference. Capcom has announced that they will be showcasing several games at E3, mostly in the Action/Adventure and Fighting/Wrestling categories.
This implies Street Fighter V, and then leaves it open, as the Action/Adventure area oddly leaves out PlayStation 4. It could be a pair of products, such as the upcoming Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for Switch and some other title, including possibly Devil May Cry 5, for Xbox One and PC, although the description of Action/Adventure can fit almost any title at this point save arguably the Resident Evil games.
We will know more if Capcom confirms Devil May Cry 5 at E3 this year.
