Remember that rumour regarding Devil May Cry 5? Well, here’s something to mess with your head.
Hideaki Itsuno dropped a nugget of interest on Twitter a few days ago regarding his “new project”, stating that the project is now “under climax”. I’m sure he means that it’s “under completion” or “close to completion” (though let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to say that their work is “under climax”?). For those who don’t know, Itsuno and his team previously worked on entries in the Devil May Cry series, as well as Dragon’s Dogma (which is rumoured to be an inspiration for DMC 5‘s levels).
Happy new year!
I am sorry that I can not present a new project last year. The development of the project is now under climax. I am making a great game so please expect it.

This announcement echoes a similar tweet last June, where Itsuno apologized for his project no-showing E3 (but had stated in December 2016 would be announced that year). Of course, this could all be for something entirely not Devil May Cry 5, which would be disappointing. I guess we’ll find out later this year (hopefully).
