Capcom, developers of the Devil May Cry franchise, appear to have registered a domain for the website for what looks like the unannounced and upcoming entry in the DMC series. This could prove to be a huge piece of information ahead of E3 2018.
Fans on the DMC Discord server recently discovered that the domain: devilmaycry5.com, was registered on the 18th of May by GMO Internet Group – a Japanese internet providing company.
GMO have been responsible for registering the domains of several recent Capcom titles, so this does not look like a coincidence. Monster Hunter: World’s website was registered through the service along with the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard website.
Information regarding these domain names can be sourced via the online identity provider, WhoIs.
Devil May Cry 5
Monster Hunter: World
Resident Evil 7
Notice how each website shows GMO as its registrar.
This piece of information has added much fuel to the recent speculation that a Devil May Cry 5 announcement is coming at E3, which is now just around the corner. It begins on June 12th and finishes two days later on the 14th.
