Capcom: We didn’t want Devil May Cry to “fizzle out” before reboot

Capcom producer Motohide Eshiro says a new direction has been taken on the upcoming DmC because the company didn’t want the franchise to “fizzle out”.

“As far as the timing is concerned, a big part of the motivation is not waiting for the series to fizzle out, but to do it while the series is still doing really well,” Eshiro told Siliconera at a recent preview event.

“We’ve done Devil May Cry 1-4 and they keep getting better with each iteration, but rather than waiting for things to go badly and then trying to give it a rebirth we thought it would be an interesting challenge to try to do something new with it while it’s still quite viable.”

“As a company, we want to challenge ourselves rather than wait until the series is not viable,” he added later. “Let’s do it now and see what happens while it’s still quite big.”
