UPDATE: Capcom has reached out to use with the following statement: "This seems to be an error on the Steam pages. I can confirm the game is coming out on 8th March as previously announced."
An update on the Steam back-end appears to have leaked a potential two-month delay for Devil May Cry 5.
According to SteamDB, Devil May Cry 5 will be launching on PC on May 7th, 2019, two months later than its officially announced March 8th release date.
Interestingly, this update to the DMC5 on the Steam back-end was actually committed a full two months ago, on November 19th, 2018. Either this is a simple error on Capcom’s part, a database mix-up, or it’s aware of a lengthy delay and Capcom just hasn’t informed the fans yet.
Just to make it all the more confusing, there’s actually a second entry for Devil May Cry 5 in the Steam database with a different app ID. This one is more regularly updated but it doesn’t have any release date attached for DMC5 whatsoever.
Your guess is as good as mine on this one, although I wouldn’t go jumping to any conclusions just yet. There have been a few murmurs this delay could be just for the PC version but, again, it’s a shaky conclusion to draw from simple back-end database pulls. My gut reaction tells me this is nothing more than a simple mistake, or reading too deeply into relatively minor changes.
Capcom’s official word is that Devil May Cry 5 will launch on March 8th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and there are no other indicators that this has changed. We've reached out to Capcom for an official statement and will let you know just as soon as we hear anything.
