Polish QA and localization studio QLOC handling port of Ninja Theory's upcoming action game; won't arrive until after console versions hit in January; Dante confirmed as only playable character.
Capcom's new DMC: Devil May Cry is coming to the PC, but it won't release until after the console versions hit, and it won't be developed by Ninja Theory. Speaking to Eurogamer, Capcom producer Alex Jones said the team is working to launch the PC version as soon after the console iterations hit in January 2013, but no firm date has been nailed down.
"I can't give you a day and date," Jones said. "What I can say we're endeavouring to get it out as shortly after the main game as possible so there's as little a gap between those two as we can reasonably get."
What's causing the PC version of Devil May Cry to arrive after the console iterations is the fact that developer Ninja Theory has outsourced the project, resulting in "logistical things" slowing the effort down. Polish quality assurance and localization studio QLOC, which has worked on past Capcom ports before, is handling the project.
Elsewhere in the interview, Jones confirmed that Dante will be the only playable character in Devil May Cry, shooting down speculation that Virgil's appearance in the game's newest trailer indicated he would also be playable.
Devil May Cry will follow a redesigned version of Dante, envisioning a younger version of the gun-toting, sword-wielding demon slayer in the modern world. Ninja Theory has said it wants to give the series a fresh start, with a scythe and axe added to his standard arsenal. The game is due out on January 15 in North America and Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
PC released finally...A sudden changes occur . that's good. hope all developer switch back to PC Game version like use to be.
"Dante confirmed as only playable character." plus, DMC3 dante costume, sparda costume, shirtless dante, and virgil as DLC's at $20 each.
The only young Dante is the one from Devil May Cry 3, if they wish to use the same names on an alternate, metrosexual, reality, it's their call. Wouldn't even get this game for free, cancel it for all I care.
Ninja Theory outsourcing DMC is actually a good thing. It means it won't suck as bad as if Ninja Theory did it.
A "Re-imagining" of a game that I loathe from a franchise I love
Made by a company that I do not loveAnnounces an out sourced port of a game I loathe.= A game three times removed from the ideal manliness of the DMC series.
Who cares if this crap comes out on Pc? i really wouldn't have downloaded even if a 25mb pirated repack of it was released :/
considering it's the PC, I have a feeling that someone will mod the game and replace Dante's head with the old one.
I don't care when it comes to PC. Just change dante's face to DMC4 model and everyone will be satisfied. At the moment, Dante looks like a crackwhore.
That box cover alone decreases my interests in buying it. If they want to redesign Dante, then kudos to them for having the balls to stand up to fans, but this new Dante looks pathetic. I'd be more afraid of Yoshi.
Capcom is going to put this game on the PC six months after the console version. Its going to sell poorly and they will blame piracy as a result.
How about putting all games on the consoles and PC at the same time? Lets look at the track of every publisher who have done so, games on the PC tend to sell much better.
