Does anyone know if Capcom formed a contract with NT about multiple games, or was this a one off?
I'm not sure anyone knows for sure. Judging by the open ending in both the core game and then the DLC, I'd say NT was simply too confident and assumed they'd get a green light to continue. For now, that would probably be the safest assumption.
Don't forget that they were working under the expectation of selling 5 million units, yet they've barely reached 0.6 million sold. The safest assumption is that no one will be making a Devil May Cry for quite some time.
The biggest problem with overhauling a series is you run the risk of alienating the original fans while still being incapable of luring in the new ones you hope to attract. I think Capcom should have been more forceful with regards to how Dante, Vergil, and Mundus were portrayed. That could have saved a lot of face. On some level, I applaud them for sticking to their guns, but it clearly backfired here.

So there's a demand now for this flop of a game, but there wasn't a demand for DMC 4 despite it selling like 4 times as many copies. Am I missing something here? Wouldn't it be better to make DMC5 and not have to fight an uphil battle against the fans(you know, again) than to make DmC2 and hope people will buy it by saying "we fixed the mistakes from te last game! Promise."

You know, as stupid as Capcom is, they're not this stupid. The game isn't getting a sequel. This was their chance to "revive" the franchise because people were disappointed with DMC4, but it backfired horribly. They wanted to try something different and it's obvious people don't want that, the ten of you who like the game will just have to suck it up.
Hopefully we'll see the real DMC come back in a few years, and this pile of **** will be forgotten.
