Devil May Cry 5 composer Casey Edwards has hinted at returning to the series in a recent Twitter/X post. The fifth Devil May Cry entry launched back in 2019 to critical and commercial success, with many praising the game’s unique industrial rock soundtrack composed by Edwards. The composer seems to be teasing his involvement in a new related project but most fans believe that it’s linked to the upcoming Netflix anime.
Casey Edwards took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to ask the question “what if I were to write more Devil May Cry music?”, causing fans to speculate that he might be involved in a new project. Since there’s no indication that Capcom has begun working on a new Devil May Cry game, Edwards’ tease is likely related to the new Netflix anime which aims to adapt the franchise. Music is also generally composed for games far into development so unless Capcom has done a very good job keeping a new game under lock, it’s probably for the anime.
Edwards composed the popular songs “Devil Trigger” and “Bury the Light” for Devil May Cry 5, though he’s also known for composing music for games such as Mortal Kombat 1 and Exoprimal as well as the animated TV show, Final Space.
Capcom reportedly has a lot of upcoming projects including whispers of Resident Evil 9 and the next Monster Hunter. Meanwhile, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is set to launch in March next year while the mysterious Pragmata is still without a release date. We haven’t seen any reports about a new Devil May Cry game entering development. Director Hideaki Itsuno, who directed both Devil May Cry 4 and Devil May Cry 5, is currently serving as the director of Dragon’s Dogma 2 so it’s not likely that he’s also involved in a new DMC project right now.
