Many gamers were unhappy at the news that the Devil May Cry franchise would be getting a reboot.
You wouldn’t, however, expect death threats to be sent over it – though that’s what developer Ninja Theory have unfortunately been hit with.
“Alex Garland warned me about it because he experienced a similar thing with 28 Days Later where people were upset that it didn’t feature real zombies,” said studio head, Tameem Antoniades, during an interview with OXM.
“So I was half prepared for it, although I have to say that it has been pretty eye opening to see some of the creative ways in which people have chosen to vent their hatred. We didn’t expect death threats in comic book form or anti-DmC death metal songs!”
Titled DmC: Devil May Cry, the reboot is set to hit PS3, as well as Xbox 360 later this year.
