Death Threats Made To Ninja Theory Over DMC

Tameem Antoniades, Ninja Theory creative bossman, recently said that his developing studio came under some heavy fire, mainly in the form of death threats, for rebooting the Devil May Cry franchise.

In an interview with OXM Antoniades stated that he was a bit prepared for the uproar thanks to some advice from Enslaved co-writer Alex Garland.
“Alex Garland warned me about it because he experienced a similar thing with 28 Days Later where people were upset that it didn’t feature real zombies. And now with his upcoming Dredd movie,” he said.

“So I was half prepared for it, although I have to say that it has been pretty eye opening to see some of the creative ways in which people have chosen to vent their hatred. We didn’t expect death threats in comic book form or anti-DmC death metal songs!”
Antoniades said he expects the masses to be easy once they start to see more and more gameplay emerge.
“It’s pretty hard for me to back the decisions we made without showing actual gameplay to the public. So until that time comes, and it will come soon, I just have to put up with the rage.

“Though I must say, lots of people have come and said that they are now interested in DmC whereas they had previously lost interest in the series. We’ll see how this plays out.”
DMC is out later this year for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
