Capcom: 'Devil May Cry' stays fresh with 'DmC'

Motohide Eshiro, Capcom producer, recently stated that the upcoming reboot of the Devil May Cry franchise - DmC - was to keep the franchise fresh.

In a recent interview with Siliconera, Eshiro stated;
As far as the timing is concerned, a big part of the motivation is not waiting for the series to fizzle out, but to do it while the series is still doing really well."

Weve done Devil May Cry 1-4 and they keep getting better with each iteration, but rather than waiting for things to go badly and then trying to give it a rebirth we thought it would be an interesting challenge to try to do something new with it while its still quite viable.

As a company, we want to challenge ourselves rather than wait until the series is not viable, he added later. Lets do it now and see what happens while its still quite big.
DmC is out next year for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
