Third major work-for-hire project for the Cambridge outfit

Ninja Theory scores Capcom Devil May Cry deal

Growing UK independent studio Ninja Theory has signed a major deal with Capcom to develop the next Devil May Cry title.

The Cambridge based outfit will continue to specialise in building third-person action titles, with the DMC game following on from the Enslaved and Heavenly Sword projects.

It means that in the last five years Ninja Theory has built business relationships with SCEE, Namco Bandai and now Capcom.

Yet, with the studio remaining independent of its publishers, the group is yet work on its own self-owned IP.

The deal continues Capcom’s collaborative operation with Western developers, a ongoing policy brought to light when the publisher’s star exec Keiji Inafune famously claimed Japanese game development “is dead”.

The DMC project was described by Capcom as being a ‘collaborative’ effort between the two groups.
