Game company CAPCOM has confirmed that upcoming video game Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will not be coming to PC.
Just recently the Special Edition was revealed last PlayStation 5 showcase featuring different new modes like the Legendary Dark Knight mode, Turbo mode, and ray-tracing support. It also revealed its biggest surprise: Vergil as a playable character.
This version will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X with Vergil as a DLC character for all platforms. Unfortunately the Special Edition specific contents will not be available on the PC platform. This has angered some fans and has review-bombed the game on Steam.
A CAPCOM representative gave a statement to Eurogamer to clarify:
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is specifically being developed and optimised to benefit the system architecture and leap in processing power offered by PS5 and Xbox Series X, so we’re focusing on these platforms. At present, there are no plans to release DMC5SE on PC.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition on PS5 and Xbox Series X will be available on Nov. 12. It will be available in digital form for only $40.
