This may or may not be DMCV related but it has been making the rounds on DMC related communities so it’s worth posting here.

The user who posted this wishes to remain anonymous but they contacted me to share this information.

Apparently there’s a company called Player Research located in Brighton, UK that is currently taking in players to test a new game. Normally it’s for standard mobile and console type game but this new game has a peculiar type of games on the list:



The list of games is interesting because it lists DMC, Bayonetta, God of War and Infinite Blade on there along with other action/adventure games. Based on the leaks, this could very much point to DMCV. Note that Capcom is not really know for playtesting their games here so take this with a MASSIVE grain of salt.

Also if you are in the Brighton, UK area… heads up for this.

And Hellblade came out too, and is selling well above expectations! Everybody wins, honestly - DMC fans and Ninja Theory fans alike.
So we have nothing to fight about, which is cool! I'd still love to see DmC as a subseries - did Mega Man fans ever beef over grimdark X coexisting with the simple and innocent classic series, I wonder?

Loooooool those games sold like doo doo.


Those are EVO attendance numbers per game. In 2017, SFV pulled just shy of 3x the numbers IJ did, and KI...wasn't...even...there.

UMVC3 didn't pull as much as Rev2 did, and Rev2's numbers were right up alongside IJ's.

Tekken is cross-platform, but I will bet you money-match cash that the PS4 version has outsold the XBO version by clear and decisive margins.

So is this about sales figures, availability on platforms or the number of people actively playing them? Because I'm trying to figure out what foundation your argument is attempting to stand upon.

Man, all I've said is DMC and DmC can coexist and there's no reason to have the fanbases turn on each other. I think it's cool you're getting another game!
If DmC was some kind of spin-off with different gameplay, maybe, but it was meant as a reboot of the series.

Capcom won't be able to mantain both series, without losing potential sales on each game.

It's probably not DMCV... but the choice of games in there like God of War, DMC and Bayonetta is hella suspect..

If I had to guess I think it's some stylized action game for mobiles. It has Star Wars and Infinite Blade on there.

I like DMC! I know all about the lore. It just has a plot and narrative execution closer to Tommy Wiseau's The Room than Hamlet, that's all
That's why it's so good, though. I don't think anyone would argue with you that DMC's plot is good. It's horrendously terrible, but that's what makes it charming. At least for me it does, haha.

Your logic has a fundamental flaw.

It's based on the assumption he's actually trying to make an argument and isn't shitposting.

Honestly, don't quote me and try to coax me into dealing with your intentionally obtuse nonsense

This topic is not in any way, shape, or form about DmC or what "good" fighting games are on Xbox, it's getting ridiculous
I think you wanted to quote someone else?
If DmC was some kind of spin-off with different gameplay, maybe, but it was meant as a reboot of the series.

Capcom won't be able to mantain both series, without losing potential sales on each game.
I think the market would take well to having both series running, as long as the games are good and feed positively into each other.

Well, we all know which UK-based developer has worked on DMC games before. But seriously, where did this information surface from?

Responses here are some of the most obvious "proxy-war" interactions in the entire hobby. We're back in the post-PS2 era where people are upset that a game might also be made for another platform, and the idea of multi-plat releases not on [preferred brand] is mocked as itself a sort of fanboyism.

There are tons of reasons to limit a release. If a platform holder is investing in the release, that's legit. If there's a fundemental tech limitation on a platform, that's legit. If one of the platform holders has weirdo publishing requirements that kill the viability, that's legit. If the product itself is lower-budget and the expected sales don't make sense to scale up development/testing, that's legit. If it's a studio too small to handle multi-plat testing in-house, that's legit. Outside of that sort of thing? If you're rallying for fewer people being able to play a game for any reason besides the business-end not making sense, I don't know what to say. It sure ain't "you're right."

I'd assume this would be under heavy NDA's. Curios if its big enough (like DMC5 somehow) if any one would risk it by leaking what this was for.

DmC's issue wasn't even really Donte

I don't even mind Donte starting off the game as a cunt hobo

it was the overall story and how shit that was. The whole "THE GOVERNMENT ARE DEMONS WAKE UP FROM THE CONSPIRACY" angle was just destined to be cringey edge shit
Let's not act as if DMC's story prior to DmC was amazing... It was always terrible. And, in terms of "cringey edge shit", the biggest one is probably in the very first game :D

Mega Man X (1993)
Mega Man 7 (1995)
Mega Man Legends (1997)

I definitely think DMC would be doing better with two regular complimentary subseries than a 4 year lul sprinkled with some guest appearances.

You're showing numbers from a niche tournament for niche games. There's no doubt that the PS4 version of T7 outsold the XBO version. The other games you talk about like Rev 2 aren't relevant to people in general. Hell, I bet more people know about Killer than KOF or Rev2.

This should be on the first page, thank you. It feels like more of the same. A few people questioning the possibility of not being able to play a franchise they've played on Xbox for the past decade are passively aggressively attacked over and over again. We don't even know the truth about what is being "funded" or not, but it is clear as day that certain people cheer at the mere idea of other people not on their "team" not being allowed to enjoy what they are able to.

And with that, I'm out. I don't post much but just wanted to give my 2 cents.

You're showing numbers from a niche tournament for niche games.
No, I'm showing numbers from EVO, the largest fighting game tournament on Planet Earf, where the genre's most dedicated players show up to demonstrate that dedication, platform be damned.

The other games you talk about like Rev 2 aren't relevant to people in general. Hell, I bet more people know about Killer than KOF or Rev2.
Define "more people" like you're not trying to rock some hot, sexy bandwagon fallacy as this winter's hype shit. I'll wait.
