Devil May Cry 4 killed Devil may Cry and the series. It doesnt matter how many copies of 4 sold the feedback was not in favor of the game. Hence the gamble on a reboot. --- Still playing The Mass Effect Trilogy for the forseeable future. I may be addicted.
Yes, I'm sure the game with the most copies sold(unless you count DMC3 + SE) killed the franchise.
Sales dont matter. Fans got conned and bought Devil May Cry 4 for the Hype. I'll explain this easily for you to understand. Devil May Cry 4 and Devil may Cry are like Final Fantasy 13 and 13-2. Get hyped and buy the one the next come out and over 60 percent of the people who bought the previous one back away. --- Still playing The Mass Effect Trilogy for the forseeable future.

Crapcom killed it themselves fans dont owe crapcom anything if they would have put a good product people would have bought it but they didnt and so it flopped. --- "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one" Albert Einstein
