"Devil May Cry 5" might finally be set to make its debut, as Capcom has registered a website in honor of the possible sequel. To be exact, the domain has been registered by a third party organization known as GMO Internet Group, who has a track record of buying sites on Capcom's behalf. A few of the company's past purchases include domains for "Monster Hunter: World" and "Resident Evil 7." While information remains relatively sparse, 2018's Electronic Entertainment Expo could be the ideal platform for the gaming studio to inaugurate Dante's latest adventure.

Putting aside Ninja Theory's "DmC: Devil May Cry," it has been more than a decade since Capcom last published a numbered entry in the series. Reports by IGN and Comic Book provided most of the details used int his article.

'Devil May Cry 5' set to be released on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

While the franchise's original trilogy was PlayStation 2 exclusives, "Devil May Cry 5" seems locked to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor. Even though the game is yet to be confirmed and this is far from the first time that rumors have circulated around Dante's glorious comeback, an Austrian retailer called Gameware recently put up a listing for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the hack-and-slash title.

Combined with the newly registered domain, things seem to be lining up for "Devil May Cry 5."

'Devil May Cry 5' is the one fans have been yearning for

In 2013, "DmC: Devil May Cry" hit the scene to decent reviews but Ninja Theory's game seemed to cut the fanbase down the middle. Furnished with a new hairstyle and try-hard attitude, many ridiculed the Americanized version of Dante for lacking the original's charm. Published five years earlier, "Devil May Cry 4" pushed Dante aside to make room for a fashionable protagonist named Nero, who also struggled to match the sheer awesomeness of the franchise's iconic private investigator.

Following up on the fantastic third entry in the series, Capcom's sequel offered near-perfect combat but struggled due to repetitive environments and the game's second-half being a rehash of the first.

Earlier this year, Capcom ported the "Devil May Cry HD Collection" onto the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, seemingly setting the stage for a big reveal at E3 2018. When it comes to "Devil May Cry 5," fans have been burned before, but this time things seem to be different. At this point, it is impossible to know when the game would be released; thankfully, E3 is just around the corner and, hopefully, will bring forth a couple of answers.
