One of the many problems with the video games industry (most gamers will agree there are big issues) is the length of time it takes for games to be developed. The bigger and the better the game is the longer it generally takes to arrive. This means fans of certain series have to wait years between releases.
Lately some developers have reversed that trend, with, for example, a new Call Of Duty game every year and a new Uncharted game every two years. I’d say the latter is spot-on, but three to four years is frankly intolerable.
According to Gamespot, Capcom is making a real effort to speed development on its biggest titles up, with the aim being to release a new title no more than two-and-a-half years after its predecessor.
The controversial (due to the change in style) DMC: Devil May Cry has been confirmed for a January 2013 release, which means the next game in the series should arrive sometime in 2015. That still feels like a long wait but but sure beats the five-year gap between Devil May Cry 4 and its successor.
