Devil May Cry 5 is the upcoming fifth installment of the Devil May Cry series. The game was formally announced at E3 2018 during the Microsoft Press Conference. Set a few years after the events of Devil May Cry 4, 5 follows Nero as he fights off a widespread demon invasion, all the while looking for the cloaked figure who took the Devil Bringer. It is set for a Spring 2019 release.
Devil May Cry 5 has been in development since at least 2014, one year before the Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition had been released. Hideaki Itsuno had been working on the game since after DMC4:SE was finished, and the full development team was formed in 2015.
The game runs on the RE Engine and uses photorealistic graphics, the developers scanned various models to give a realistic look to the characters and even real clothes which were created in London and scanned in Serbia. Making Nero's new jacket cost as much as a small car.
A few years after Devil May Cry 4, Nero has his own branch of Devil May Cry. He must fight off a demon invasion in Red Grave City after a demonic tree takes root with help from his arm mechanic, Nico. He is also chasing after a man who severed his arm - the Devil Bringer.
The gameplay will revolve around three playable characters - Nero and Dante being among them. To replace the Devil Bringer, Nero wields a cybernetic prosthetic called "Devil Breaker" with many of the same moves as its predecessor, as well as several additional abilities.
