Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition isn't coming to PC because it's been 'optimized' for next-gen consoles

Maybe...one day?

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition is on Steam. Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is on Steam. Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition...is skipping PC entirely, at least for now.

Unveiled during Sony's PS5 event last week, we found out that DMC5 was making the Special Edition leap like several iterations before it, complete with the classic playable Vergil add-on. Shortly after Capcom announced that the re-release would also hit the Xbox Series X, but what about PC? It's not looking good for the near future.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Capcom explained: "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."

It's a strange situation as there doesn't seem to be any exclusivity deal involved, and Devil May Cry 5 looks to have sold well enough to warrant the Special Edition treatment on all three platforms. But given that Capcom's teams are probably spread thin at the moment, a future PC version could be directly linked to the sales of the console releases.
