"No, I have never said anything along the lines of holding anything in the future hostage to sales of this title."
'Devil May Cry 4' just got the snazzy remaster treatment this past week. We're still chipping away at the review, but if you decided to throw down for the game anyway in hopes that it'll determine whether we get more 'Devil May Cry', slow it down, it's not how it's going to work.
A rumor had been going around that this and the Remaster of Ninja Theory's reboot from earlier this year were essentially the most expensive informal polls ever, allowing players to determine the course of the series. Well, in an interview with Gamespot, Hideaki Itsuno, director on 'Devil May Cry 2' through '4', would like to burst that bubble.
"At the time of 'Devil May Cry 4'['s original release], I spoke to an interviewer in Japan and I had given a message to the fans at the end of the interview saying 'Let us know what you want to see in the future of 'DMC.'' I spoke to the same guy this time around for the special edition and I kind of just made an off-the-cuff comment along the lines of, 'We're always listening to your feedback, please buy the special edition.' So I think the fans with internet have taken that there is a literal survey somewhere with check boxes that will feed into a future game, but it was just a general comment on my part saying that Capcom values fan feedback."
So there you go. Buy 'Devil May Cry 4' because you want it, not because you're literally voting with your wallet.
Also, buy the Ninja Theory reboot because it was amazing and we deserve nice things.
