Devil May Cry 5 had a successful launch on Steam but the sales of the game weren’t that great in Japan and UK, where it was down over its predecessor. The sales are apparently not that low as per a producer at Capcom who is the founder of Global Productions.
Devil May Cry 5 is supposed to get a Bloody Palace update on 1st April. Fans have data mined the game and ruined one of the surprises in the upcoming update, which according to speculations is a new playable character.
The game didn’t manage to do that well in its opening week in the UK and Japan but that is not a cause of concern as per the Capcom Producer.
Peter Fabiano is the founder of Global Production at Capcom and a producer there as well. In an exchange with a fan over at Twitter, he clarified that Devil May Cry 5 sales are not that low. He didn’t give a number but the way he assured fans surely means Capcom is satisfied with them.
Don’t worry, they’re not low 😉

In their fiscal report, they expected the game to ship two million copies in the current fiscal year so hopefully, they can hit that target.
Devil May Cry 5 is the next mainline game in the popular hack-and-slash series that is releasing after more than a decade and a failed attempt at a reboot. The game continues the story of Dante, Nero, and others in the Devil May Cry universe and brings a lot of new features into the mix. It was released on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC early in March.
