“Devil May Cry 5” | Timeline Changed?! | DMC2 now takes place before DMC4
Devil May Cry 5 news informs us that Capcom has changed the timeline of DMC. What’s up guys? This is RBG hitting you up with rather interesting news regarding something that was revealed on the official CapcomChannel. And that is the subtle change of Devil May Cry 5’s chronology. Now I’ve been going on and on about the order in which each game takes place and 1 of the main things I’ve elaborated on the most is where part 2 fits within the timeline. For the longest time it’s been said to take place at the tail end of all the entries leading up to DMC5 which means DMC2 takes place after part 4. This has been something that’s been addressed by Capcom themselves through official collectables like the DMC graphics art book entitled 3142 which is a play off of the order of the each entry. And Devil May Cry 4 gave a brief movie providing some of the history about the series in which they show part 2 as Dante’s last adventures. Even Devil May Cry 5’s producer, Matt Walker confirmed that DMC2 took place before the events of part 5. So there was more than enough proof to validate Devil May Cry 2’s place in the timeline. Granted some of the fan’s refusal to believe it was in the place it was in let alone it being canon was reasonable. Because the game is riddled with flaws and Dante’s attitude is the polar opposite of what he’s like in parts 3, 1, & 4. Not to mention the fact that if it did take place after 4 why was there no mention on the whereabouts of Nero and Dante’s expansion of the Devil May Cry brand. But DMC4 sorta explains why he has that serious personality. Stating that that he’s fully embraced Sparda’s legacy and grown more fearless with age. And he’s so powerful compared to his earlier incarnations. So I felt that it was necessary to putting DMC2 at the very end. What I will say is that they do seem to be taking certain story elements like the Majin form and adding it into DMC5. We just need to see a little more to be expanded on. Like the whereabouts of Lucia.
