The New year is finally here, and developers and producers worldwide have spread messages welcoming in the new year, including Devil May Cry and Dragons Dogma lead Hideaki Itsuno, who included in his new year message to fans that an announcement will be coming soon for his next game. His full message on social media was as follows: "Happy new year! Did you play DMC5 SE? If you get new hardware, play it. Until then, practice with Vergil DLC. The new project under construction in parallel is on track. It's still a long way off, but stay tuned for the announcement!" As far as new years messages go this is pretty exciting, as we now know we will see a Capcom announcement from one of their greatest action leads, but what is Hideaki hinting at announcing? We at 3Bit have a few guesses as to what this might be ranging from the highly likely to slightly out there, so be sure to check out our thoughts below and let us know what you are hoping it could be on our social media channels which you can find at the bottom of this page.

Our most likely deduction from this post is the sequel to 2012's Dragon's Dogma. Hideaki has said the game in question is still a long way off, which could lead to us seeing the sequel to popular hack and slash RPG on Dragon's Dogma's 10th anniversary. The fact that Hideaki mentions that the game has been in the works in parallel to Devil May Cry 5 would suggest that the game in question is not just an action-driven title like that of Devil May Cry and as a result brings us to the conclusion of Dragon's Dogma 2.

Going on a bit of a stretch another game Hideaki could be working on is an all-new Onimusha title. There hasn't been a full Onimusha game since 2006 when Dawn of Dreams released. After Dawn of Dreams the Onimusha creator Keiji Inafune left Capcom in 2010 Since then Onimusha has only been picked back up by Capcom in 2012 with Onimusha Soul which was released as a Japanese exclusive. When looking at the remaining directors in Capcom, there is only one director I would want behind the classic Ninja/Samurai title and that is Hiadeki, due to his incredible work in the hack and slash world.

Finally, there is a bit of a further stretch than Onimusha, Devil May Cry 6. To say that the 6th instalment of Devil May Cry was being made in parallel to 5th is a massive stretch, as I do not believe Capcom could've predicted the Demon Hunters Surge of popularity in 2019. However, with the amount of effort put into Devil May Cry 5, there is also a chance that Capcom wants more Nero, Dante and Vergil out in the world, especially after that shocking ending! However, as much as I would love to see another addition to my favourite video game series, this is incredibly unlikely given the time involved in creating a game of this scale.
