It has been rumoured that Heavenly Sword creator Ninja Theory has been grabbed by Capcom to develop the next Devil May Cry 5. The Cambridge, UK, studio is currently hard at work on Enslaved, but has admitted to working on a secret Xbox 360 and PS3 project. When probed over whether this game was Devil May Cry 5, Ninja Theory did not offer a denial.
Instead Ninja Theory’s head ninja, Tameem Antionades, gave VG247 mere teasing statements. When asked what the secret game was, Tameem replies:
“I can say it is an unannounced game for an unannounced publisher.”
When asked as to whether it was Devil May Cry 5, Tameem infuriatingly answers:
“Well, there’s no way I’m gonna confirm or deny if we’ve got anything to do with it. [laughs] No chance! [laughs]”
If there’s no chance in hell that the team is working on it, they’d surely be quick to deny the rumour in fear of falsely raising hopes. The comment thus, in our opinion, points to a certain amount of truth in the possibility of Ninja Theory creating Devil May Cry 5.
