Capcom is entering into a new PC gaming golden age, with Monster Hunter World becoming exceptionally popular on the platform while new releases like Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2 (Remake) proving incredibly popular in their own right. 

As of today, Devil May Cry 5 has become Capcom's second best PC launch of all time, with the top spot going to Monster Hunter World, which had an incredibly successful launch in 2018, despite coming to the PC platform long after the game's console release. 

As Capcom's second major release of 2019, Devil May Cry 5 sets the stage for a fantastic year for Capcom, offering a quality PC version and achieving high sales volumes as a result. 

Earlier today, Devil May Cry 5 had over 82,000 concurrent players on Steam, with the game having a simultaneous player peak of 89,000, which is more than enough to bring the game into Steam's top ten most charts, which is a big deal for a PC game that lacks a dedicated multiplayer component.  

This is also the second big 2019 release of Capcoms that uses the company's RE engine, which enabled the game's gorgeous visuals and stellar performance. We plan to go into more details regarding this game's performance in our upcoming game analysis.

Capcom has started to focus more of its efforts on PC gaming, which has resulted in increased sales and further profits for the company, showcasing the benefits of high-quality PC releases. Hopefully, Capcom will continue to place this level of effort into their PC releases and develop more titles on their versatile RE engine.

Would have been nice to mention up front the Monster Hunter World was the best selling game. It was somewhat implied, but I had to do a web search to verify it.Quote

It wasn't implied plus that's being bit anal to the extreme, What was mentioned is that this is the 2nd game to use the RE Engine, The first being Resident Evil 7.Quote

It's definitely on my wish list. Unfortunately I don't have time for video games for the time being, but I can't wait to play it. I've been a fan of the franchise since the very first one back in the day. Yeah, these games can be a bit cringy and they're pretty badly written (aside from DMC3 which is pretty decent in that regard), but I don't care.


It also looks fantastic. Gorgeous visuals. I really dig Capcom's RE engine. I wouldn't mind a remake of the original trilogy in RE engine.Quote

I played all of Devil May Cry 5 now and I really enjoyed it. Yeah the game's story is a little silly, but the visuals were good, the cutscenes are superbly animated and every character plays well, even the new guy V.

Expect some Devil May Cry 5 content early next week on the site. Got to do some experimenting with Denuvo this weekend, as Capcom messed up and allowed a Denuvo-free executable get released into the wild. Expect to see results from that tomorrow.Quote
