The latest updates for "Devil May Cry 5" reveal a possible announcement at next year's electronic entertainment expo. Gamerant theorized that Capcom will officially launch the fifth title at E3 after the publisher did not showcase it at this year's PlayStation Experience event.

The Japanese video game publisher also revealed that the "Devil May Cry" HD Collection will not support 4K in the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles. The HD Collection will be available on March 13, 2018, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.

New gameplay and story

According to the leaked information from ResetEra, Capcom will launch "Devil May Cry 5" between April 2018 and March 2019, with a demo gameplay coming sometime before the launch. The Japanese publisher has been developing the sequel for two years and it could be a PlayStation exclusive due to Sony funding the project.

It was rumored that "DMC 5" will be showcased at PSX 2017 along with "Soul Calibur 6," but Capcom did not reveal it during the event. It is likely the that developers are planning to announce the game at E3 next year in order to build the hype and momentum for the series.

The sequel's story will take place after the fourth game and it will feature a more serious Dante, although he still maintains his flippant personality.

The famed son of Sparda will battle the "Prince of Darkness" in the game and video game fans speculated that it could be the returning demon lord, Mundus.

The level designs of the sequel are much more open than previous titles, however, it will not have an open-world feature. Combat will be smoother and more fluid, and players may face more enemy units in one area.

Boss battles are heavily focused on within the game and their encounters are more dramatic than previous fights.

It is said that one boss fight will have a stage transition and players can now interact with objects during mid-battle. Players can switch characters during key story points, and Trish will have a huge role in the plot.

The sequel also teased the possible return of Dante's twin brother, Vergil, to the "DMC" continuity.

The Style System will be revamped and it will be a huge improvement from "DMC4."

No 4K resolution for 'DMC' collection

Capcom announced that the "DMC" HD Collection will not run at 4K resolution for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. They told USgamer that the collection will run at 1080p at 60fps on the consoles and PC platforms. A huge improvement from the 780p on the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles.

The hardware on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One should be enough to reach 1080p or higher. The HD collection includes the first "Devil May Cry, " DMC 2," and "DMC 3: Special Edition."
