The devil hunters are back. Dante and Nero return for fast-paced demon-slicing action in Devil May Cry 5 early next year. Capcom's in-house team is back at the helm for DMC5, providing a true sequel to DMC 4. Devil May Cry 5 is the first in the series to be built using Capcom's proprietary RE Engine, offering the most detailed visuals yet seen in a Devil May Cry title. But what's that mean for PC performance and system specs? Here are the official DMC5 PC system requirements.

Devil May Cry 5 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 760 or Radeon R9 270X
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

Devil May Cry 5 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-4770 3.4 GHz or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 960 or Radeon R9 380
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HDD: 35GB Available Hard Drive Space

When looking at the system requirements for Devil May Cry 5, there's one thing that really sticks out. Both the minimum and recommended requirements for DMC5 are identical except for the graphics cards.

The suspicion is the system specs for Devil May Cry 5 could change a great deal between now and its March 9th release date. They could stay exactly as they are of course, although we believe the recommended GPUs may rise slightly while the minimum CPUs will actually drop. It won't be major changes but there's no way DMC5 needs a Core i7-4770 as the minimum spec processor.

In fact, if we look at Resident Evil 7's system requirements we get a decent idea of where both performance and system requirements are headed. DMC5 is based on the same RE Engine as Resident Evil 7 and features very similar system specs. However, the minimum CPUs ae a Core i5-4460 or an AMD FX-6300, so something along these lines is likely to end up as the minimum requirements CPUs for Devil May Cry 5.

When it comes to the graphics card though, the changes between now and launch could be far more minor. 60fps is going to be fairly crucial in a fast-paced character action game like Devil May Cry 5, so the recommended spec GPUs should definitely be seen as targets. If performance is similar to RE7, a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 390 may be required for a locked 60fps with no dips.
