In a report by IGN the producer Adi Shankar, known for Netflix’s Castlevania animated series, confirms they are working on a new Devil May Cry series.
Devil May Cry Animated Series Announced and Will Crossover with Netflix’s Castlevania
Capcom’s Devil May Cry is getting its very own Netflix animated series but that’s not the only amazing news, there will be a crossover. Devil May Cry “will join Castlevania in what we’re now calling the bootleg multiverse” is what Shankar told fans.
How this will tie in with the current seasons of Netflix’s Castlevania is not currently known, whether it is a spin-off series that integrates with the two franchises or a standalone DMC series will have to be seen. Castlevania recently received its second season in October and has been met with praise from fans.
It looks like Shankar believes he’s the right producer for the job as he mentions in the interview that he “acquired these [Devil May Cry] rights myself so the jabronis in Hollywood don’t f*** this one up too.”
While DMC isn’t the only game franchise production that is getting its own feature, with the Monster Hunter movie now well in the works already. The Witcher is also currently in production for its first season also by Netflix.
In a teaser tweet, Shankar confirms news of the DMC series:
