It’s been reported that Ninja Theory, the studio who brought us Heavenly Sword for the PS3 and is currently hard at work on Enslaved for the PS360, is working on a secret project.
Is that secret project the next Devil May Cry game? Game Informer says, yes. Quoted from page 30 of the magazine’s May issue, for those without a subscription:
Loose Talk has learned that Enslaved isn’t the only game Ninja Theory is working on-we’ve heard that the Cambridge, England developer is being tapped for the next Devil May Cry.
It is not totally unexpected, however; Capcom has said that although it is shying away from Western developer for new IP, it would continue to utilize them for known franchises, which DMC certainly is.
Heavenly Sword was and still is one of the best games available for the PS3. If Ninja Theory recaptures the gameplay elements that made Heavenly Sword enjoyable with the next DMC game and expands upon it, then you can label this gamer very excited!
