I don't understand why people assume DmC selling poorly gets you DMC5...

It is a special type of petulant baby that would rather see no games made, than games others like and they judge as bad.

Think the series is dead, DmC is a bastardization, though it's all you're going to get? Let go. Live your life. Who cares what happens to it.

And, to those 70 year old Japanese business guys sitting at the top floor at Capcom's offices who sign off on the big checks for game production


Not exactly on topic, but the old dude passed the torch to his son Tsujimoto Haruhiro now.

Inafune left a couple years after Haruhiro's rise in power.

Actually, IIRC Capcom said that the fate of the DMC series (as in which one would continue) relies heavily on DmC's sales.

So... we actually do want DmC to fail if we want DMC5.

Given the choice between DmC2 and DMC5 is pretty obvious, hell a poll on this board showed that DMC5 won by like 75% of the votes out of several hundred IIRC.

To a lot of you saying that you won't support this game...that makes sense if that's what you want to do?

Not exactly, I just decided to wait for a good Steam sale on it. Call it the fan's dilemma,I do think it looks like a decent game and something I might like to play but I do want to make it clear I don't support this "reenvisioning" of the series.

Funny thing is, you guys should actually be protesting Dragon's Dogma if you really want to go after something. Because the DMC3/DMC4 team is working on that. If Dragon's Dogma is a success, there is no need for the DMC team to go back to DMC5 when they can work on Dragon's Dogma 2. LOL, kind of interesting when you think of it like that. Because the whole reason why DMC was given to somebody else is because Itsuno wanted to try something else. If that something else proves to be a failure, he's likely to go back to DMC.

Simple solution - give Dragon's Dogma to Ninja Theory.

The HD Collection has had healthy sales figures, with a considerable spike (at least according to Amazon) as the release window to this game shortened. So for a bundle of games now about 7, 9, and 11 years old, the collection has been profitable for Capcom - I can't imagine it was at great expense to them to put together and upscale.
The anti-logic is simple. DMC is the beloved original series. DmC is the highly-experimental and amateur reboot by another developer. DMC1, DMC3, DMC4, and even DMC2 have enjoyed some great returns for Capcom - if DmC does not bring the money in, then, it will presumably be considered unprofitable and therefore discontinued. No, maybe the "Japanese fat cats" who write Capcom's checks for games wouldn't know or care much for the difference between the two, but we have the Internet. Interest in either DMC or DmC can be gauged through petitions, questionnaires, etc.

Hahaha at this terrible logic.

FFXIII is the worst game ever according to the "internet". It sold 7 million copies.

Not supporting a reboot, considering the overall negative fan reaction, doesn't sound like a nail in the coffin of the Devil May Cry franchise as a whole. It's somewhat illogical considering how much Capcom pays attention to its fans.

I don't believe that this game doing well or badly would kill off the D"M"C franchise. If they want to make a reboot at the protest of fans, actually wanting the protest of fans, it would be more than stupid to not consider failure. I'm just somehow not so arrogant to assume Capcom is run by a boardroom of monkeys.

If they do decide to cancel the franchise anyway, fans will request more. Request, request, request.

This game is horrible btw. People shouldn't buy it, and the idea of "buying a bad game so the franchise doesn't go under" is so damned inane.

"Japanese fat cats"


I like to think they have at least some sort of sales analysis division and don't leave absolutely everything to the whim of the wealthy old dudes.

Either way, we have made our position as clear as we possibly can. It isn't our fault if Capcom is too out of touch to understand.

if this game doesnt break 1 Million, which is lower than any DMC game in the franchise, it speaks volumes in regard to what people want. It seems like a tough scene for Capcom to ignore.....
