Updated the thread recap for those tuning in this fine evening:

1) Massive leak posted by Son of Sparda in the OP.
2) ZhugeEX states that leak was looked over by the mods/admins, allowed to post but on the condition that SoS takes PERMANENT BAN if this is a hoax.
3) Random supposed insider claims it's also coming on Xbox and is willing to take permanent ban for it.
4) Dahbomb posts staggering personal statement spanning 3500 words.
5) Another admin Nibel graces the thread. SweetNicole as well.
6) Claimed second leaker comes in and states that the leak is false. (ShamelessZeroMain) Also claims that DMCV will have microtransactions like DMC4SE. Source is a discord buddy.
7) Son of Sparda calls him out, starting the leaker vs leaker warfare. ShamelessZeroMain bets $1 for every post in the thread, so going $2200 strong right now.
8) SweetNicole announces that ShamelessZeroMain is beholden to the same rules as SoS. If he's wrong then he also gets permabanned.
9) ShamelessZero gets shook, starts backpedaling. More backpedaling. And more. And then some. Admits to drinking and saying stupid shit.
10) Admins ask Shameless to deliver sources, he doesn't comply. ShamelessZeroMain gets banned for trolling and having an alt account. Takes to Twitter to complain that his esports manager got a hold of his Resetera account.
11) People so hype for DMCV they start streaming this thread on youtube as it develops!
12) Sunhilegends delivers godlike gif for DMCV!
13) Gaming news outlet start running the story, it has officially gone big and viral.
14) Geoff Keighley aka the Doritos Pope graces the thread with his presence!
15) Dantelinkx comes in and leaks through a proxy that DMCV will get unveiled at either PSX or TGA. Fanning the flames of the leaker wars!
16) Maximillian D00d (famous youtubers) chimes in on the DMCV hype!
17) Dahbomb makes actual analysis of the leaks.
18) IGN first major gaming website to report on the leak.
19) MBS claims that Vergil being Nero's father is as likely as Trish being Lady's mother....
20) Johnny Bosch makes a tweet about being 5 minutes late... has 5:05 on the clock possibly referring to SOS aka Sons of Sparda.
21) Son of Sparda makes a couple of more leaks: DMCV to be PS4 console exclusive and PC later on. Engine is UE4.
22) Trish VA starts tweeting about DMCV.Trish's Voice Actor tweets about wanting the cast of DMC4SE back for Christmas. Kyrie's voice actor tweets too but could be completely unrelated.
23) Son of Sparda releases information about a location test for an unknown game in Brighton, UK. References games like DMC, Bayonetta, GoW, Zelda, Okami etc. Could be DMCV but don't count on it.
24) Voice/Mocap Actor of Vergil Dan Southworth joins in on the fun, releases old redacted pictures of the crew in mocap gear. His agent/wife chimes in that he is under NDA for his projects but won't mislead fans.
25) Maximillian D00d tweets that he is flying to an unknown location for an unknown game. Could be it for Capcom and DMCV??
26) ZombieFred makes an.... interesting poem about DMCV.
27) Can't have a crazy thread without a crazy hype train!

My bet:

Shawn Layden will troll the fuck out of us again by wearing a Devil May Cry shirt at PSX, but not showing DMCV till E3.
Honestly if this happens, you guys can pick/make whatever avatar you want and I’ll wear it until E3 for the reveal.

Man, I am so curious about this game. Particularly what my reaction to it will be. Going back to the classic DMC timeline is kind of a ballsy move in my eyes and it’s one that I don’t know how I feel about. I loved DMC1 but I find it hard to go back to. Like many I’ve always hated DMC2. I LOVED DMC3SE. No matter how many times I try to love DMC4 I just bounce off of it so hard largely because I hate everything you could possibly hate about Nero. And I love DmC: Special Edition as that version fixed a lot of the issues I had with that game. So for me this series is full of very high highs and very low lows.

He did get to play Monster Hunter World at Capcom's offices a while back, so it's clear he's got a working relationship with Capcom for getting to see new stuff beyond fighting games.
He is KNOWN for fighting games but that's not the only genre he "explores"
Fair enough. I forgot about the MHW footage he had in his youtube channel, It's true he seems to have a "relationship" with Capcom. I still don't think it's related to DMCV tho.

I think Max is getting a taste of the rumored Soul Calibur game, would be odd to see him invited for a DMC game.
He's been invited plenty of times for MHW.

I don't think this particular instance is DMCV... but if Capcom is ready to promote DMCV you bet your ass they will be having Max playtest it. He has played through the series in the past on his channel multiple times.

I know I bought DMC3 on PS3, but I don't remember if it was part of a HD collection or not. If so maybe I should finally play the first game. I only played DMC3, 4 and DmC.

After finishing NG Black yesterday I'm excited for more action games to play.

I would hope earlier
It all depend on DMCV imo.

- If DMCV is announced next week, we get a trailer for RE2 remake at E3.
- If DMCV is not announced next week and we have to wait for E3, I don't see Capcom showing both DMCV and RE2 remake at the same event.
every time new possible info come out I tell myself that I'm delusional at this point and that I'm seeing things, but WTF ARE YOU GUYS SEEING THIS SHIT TOO?!??!
THIS SHIT IS GETTING TOO CRUEL.


We ain't getting off this train now, it's at full speed.

By the time this is released, The combined install base for the PS4/X1/Switch will be huge.

If it is exclusive, Sony must be co funding.

I want the game to return to the same atmosphere the first game had. Cool, horror, expect the unexpected etc.

The later games became way too cheesy. Almost like a soap opera
 
Good lord. He's just a random person on a forum. You sound like your childhood hero just personally shook your hand. I think everyone needs to caaaaaaaalm down until the game is announced.
I did? I was just suprised that OP responded to me. I think you're kinda reaching.
Replayability has always been a pillar of the series. Maybe they could introduce all new weapons during the base game, and we'd unlock the old favorites on a second playthrough. In the exact same places we got a new weapon the first time around. Keeps things fresh and exciting, you never know which one you'll get next, and it'll give you something to look forward to. Bonus points if they actually make new cutscenes for each of the old weapons.
They should always make new cutscenes for the weapons. One of the things I didn't like about Bayonetta was that the weapons had this cool lore, but we never see it in action.
Sephiroth vs Vergil on the next Death Battle. Timing couldn't be better.

Slay that momma's boy Vergil!
Yo is that real?

HYPE!
Vergil Vs Sephiroth 2 was also the most recent One Minute Melee. Could it just be a coincidence?
There are no quarter, half, or full circle motions in DMC. There are delayed inputs such as different rebellion combos though.
Actually, there is. The command to turn Pandora into its Revenge form is a full circle.

As if DMC1 wasn't a soap opera as well.

Also Vergil vs Sephiroth in Death Battle is 100% real, it's slated for December 18th. It's their season ender.




Curious date though...

Did Capcom (and everyone else forget) that Virgil became Nelo Angelo and died at the end of the first game? How is he back in DMC 4 (and supposedly 5)? And if he did return post DMC 1 he should look and have the powers he did in DMC 1 not 3 (which was a prequel). Is this ever acknowledged in game?
