DMC to use Unreal Engine 3, says Ninja Theory

Thursday, 30th September 2010 17:20 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Ninja Theory’s confirmed on its forums it’ll be using Unreal Engine 3 for DMC.

Not much on it was given away on the developer’s forums, though, with a rep just saying:

“It will be powered by Unreal Engine.”

Also, anyone miffed about Dante’s new hair colour change might be a bit happy to hear this.

“If you look closely at the trailer you will see that he has a patch of white hair.”

It was further reiterated in the thread that the reboot in the series was not Devil May Cry 5 or a spin-off in the series and that it was a “a retelling of Dante’s origin story.”

No date yet, but it’ll release on PS3 and 360.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    DMC?????? UNREAL ENGINE????? Please BOMB Ninja Theory studios before this happens. I’m so damn sure they can’t even handle the engine… Did you play that Enslaved thing? Looked like it was aborted halfway. Not trying to be a dick but I have to. Everytime they say something new about their “DMC” game…they screw it up for the worst. Why didn’t they use DMC4 engine and improved it? Why didn’t they fuckin’ do their own game with its own characters, story, etc…? We west always having to kill good things… Movies, series, games, everything.

    Boy…. NT…. its really hard to defend you when you announce things like this.. I really believed in you taking gaming further when you developed HS but now….. sigh* its hard to say. UE3 is noted for not funning well on a ps3. But, hopefully you can change that? Oh wait you said you don’t even get the just of ps3′s hardware? Damn, so I should just take it that your going to be a cop out dev team now? Between enslaved and DMC I’m just not so sure anymore, story telling is all I should have faith in you in as opposed to tech. Please surprise me NT! I want to have faith in you again.

    Unreal engine,seriously?????I though most developers already started to move on to much better engines.
    i’m afraid this DMC will get worse each time they’ll announce new info.

    I’m really disappointed in Capcom for allowing all this to happen in the first place. You don’t need to make your games more western, they were great the way they were!!!

    @12 sure NT will get into that too westernizing it a little bit if you don’t mind.Demons will be replaced by ROBOTS just like with Odyssey to the West tale and apparently just like DMC :P

    I do admit that this DmC reboot look kinda cool, but running on Unreal Engine3 might brake this for me. Never played a game running on Ue3 in the PS3 that didnt had textures problems.
    And in our days that can be a real problem.

    Hahahaha!!1 yeah im sure they would….but i should have said it better
    “Capcom, please screw the NT team and let this be the first and last game you hand over to that developing team. Please get to work on a new Onimusha title (not like Onimusha 4 but like 1-3) and do it NOW or DIE!!”
    There, thats better.

    @4: Good thing that a game’s quality is only measured by it’s graphics.

    And Enslaved is anything but surely not outdated.

    Sadly many games are judged solely on how they look in screenshots.

    Even more sad is that the games industry responds to these shallow judgements by dumbing down gameplay, reducing framerates and making levels nothing more than straight line A to B narrow corridors to accomodate heavily postprocessed frames with more detail then any gamer could possibly appreciate.

    Pixel whores have decimated the games industry, and actual quality gameplay is a rare thing these days.
