theres no test here. they just want to make their money back on the DD port
I wouldn't be surprised if this is Capcoms way of marketing there switch games since the last 4 times they've said this whole "better sell well" thing, there games sold great. They've more than likely have made there mines up on a port of Devil May Cry by now.
Wait, so a business cannot wait to see if another game sells first? Seems logical to me, if people were not interested in a prior product of mine, why would I sell them another?
There several issue with this argument. First is that this is a port of a very old game that has been on 360/ps3/pc and later Ps4/XBone for years now. Basing a new release port in a totally different franchise based on how something that is most likely a 2nd or third buy for more people makes very little sense.
Another issue is that they have pulled this game of wait and see several times. Clearly sales turned out great for those if we are getting more ports.
If they are porting DD over, I think its clear they already know it will make a profit and find a market. There's a reason why they choose this random game.
Finally, DD and Devil May Cry are arguably going to be bought by different audiences and really doesn't show how a Devil May cry port would sell
In conclusion, this is just normal Capcom BS. This just a PR stunt from them to get people to buy DD in hopes for a port that has already been decided.
