The lower-than-expected sales figures (alongside the, arguably, critical feedback from some fans) to the 2013 reboot of the popular hack-and-slash series, Devil May Cry, has left many questioning whether an inevitable follow-up would continue DmC’s change in direction…or if Capcom would instead decide to let another one of their beloved IP’s fade into nothing. A return to the World and characters of the series previous has been discussed in many an online community and we’ve just got yet another small hint of a suggestion that the Dante of yonder might be returning.
Devil May Cry 5 has recently been spotted on actor Nils Hognestad’s resume (via Actor’s Access) and if the added numeral is any suggestion — along with the lack of any kind of initials — it seems the rebooted DmC Universe might not be returning anytime soon. The inclusion of the Lead emphasis seems to suggest Hognestad could be the new voice of Dante, but whether or not the Dante of previous will make a return or will in fact be the character from a different period of time — similar to the prequel setting to Devil May Cry 3 — remains unknown. We’ll have to wait and see if any kind of new Devil May Cry project (5 or otherwise) shows itself during Capcom’s showing at next week’s E3.
