We’ll put this in the WTF corner while we contemplate the logistics of Devil May Cry influencing Heavy Sword influencing Devil May Cry. According to Game Informer, Capcom may have passed their beloved action series over to the creators of PlayStation 3 exclusive Heavenly Sword.
“The studio is currently working on two unannounced Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 titles.”
According to a rumour offered by Game Informer magazine, Ninja Theory’s second game is the next Devil May Cry. Page 30 of the mag’s May issue writes:
“Loose Talk has learned that Enslaved isn’t the only game Ninja Theory is working on — we’ve heard that the Cambridge, England developer is being tapped for the next Devil May Cry.
“It is not totally unexpected, however; Capcom has said that although it is shying away from Western developer for new IP, it would continue to utilize them for known franchises, which DMC certainly is.”
We’re not quite sure how we feel about this. Would it still be Devil May Cry if Capcom’s Japanese developer’s weren’t working on it? Sure, Heavenly Sword was a good, but it wasn’t quite the same style of complex combat that Devil May Cry is famous for. Would you like to see the next Devil May Cry developed by Ninja Theory?
[UPDATE] – When asking for comment on this story, Capcom Europe offered a simple “We do not comment on rumour and speculation.”
