A place of scribblings located in the darkest corner of the internet. Yup.

DmC (Devil May Cry) joins the 2013 brigade with a EU/US January 15th release date. PC version due ‘later in 2013’.

And there goes another one.

No longer part of the once seemingly assured group of games that would arrive in the three months leading up to chrimbo, the Ninja Theory developed Devil May Cry reboot (and it is a reboot – Capcom clearly don’t know how to use the term correctly) has now been shunted into 2013 along with a few of its notable former Christmas running buddies such as Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Aliens: Colonial Marines.  Meanwhile, the PC version of the game is due ‘later in 2013’.

I wonder which game is next to get the 2013 ticket?  Smart money is on Grand Theft Auto V.  Considering we’ve only seen a SINGLE trailer for it so far and going on the October release window that a few are now talking about since Bioshock: Infinite got delayed, that would leave us approximately only FIVE months for Rockstar to get the product done and ready for primetime.    Also, Rockstar like to fine-tune everything to within an inch of it’s life and they like to gear up the marketing campaign accordingly.

So no, I don’t see it happening – it’s just not in their DNA.  Therefore expect Grand Theft Auto V to join the growing clique of blockbuster games in 2013.  Probably around April/May time.

Oh and seeing as I’ve veered off topic a tad, below you will find the newest video for Capcom’s DmC; one that centers on the sweary, attitude-packing protagonist and shows off some brief snippets of gameplay:

DmC is due out on 360 and PS3 platforms January 15th, 2013.  A PC version will follow later that year at a date to be specified.
