Ninja Theory hasn’t been the least bit talkative about a release date for DMC. Neither has publisher Capcom, although it’s safe to say that fans are expecting the game to come home sometime this year. I think that this belief has been fueled by the sizable length of time that has passed since the game was revealed, in conjunction with the suspenseful silence from the developer and publisher. Unfortunately, we now have reason to believe that we’ll be waiting into 2013 to get our hands on this anticipated action title.
According to recent financial documents of Capcom’s, the game is not on schedule for a release this year. This is allegedly backed by a rumor from last year that the Ninja Theory team was actually behind on development for the game. If this is true, then the game won’t be released until a shocking three years after its reveal. Because of how conservative the involved parties have been with DMC, none of these things are hard to believe.
However, you certainly shouldn’t believe them without keeping in mind that these are rumors and that the actual release date for DMC on Xbox 360 and PS3 could very well be sometime this year.
