Alright, the Devil may not be crying, but Capcom sure is. Capcom, which has produced the emo-kid wunderkind Devil May Cry series, is currently trying to repel all brigands and cutthroats as their most recent installment in the series is getting pirated.
Christian Svensson, Capcom’s senior director of strategic planning and research posted on the industry giant’s forum lamenting Devil May Cry 4’s abysmal PC sales.
“It’s such a good version and it really deserves better sales,” Svensson wrote. “I know it’s getting pirated to hell and back – it was up on torrents literally the day it shipped.”
Despite rampant pirating of the title, Svensson is adamant to continue digital distribution of future titles, including the forthcoming Bionic Commando.
“I certainly have pushed for digital distribution on (Devil May Cry 4) – globally, I’m responsible for all DD deals,” Svensson wrote. “I have a presentation I’m making shortly that I’m hoping will make that approach something we do with all our PC content, even those developed in Japan, but no promises. It might not happen.”
