In a dance that would make even the most skillful devil hunter stumble, Devil May Cry fans have been dealt a blow as two beloved games, Devil May Cry 3 and 4, mysteriously vanish from the Steam marketplace. Gone in a puff of smoke, Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition and Devil May Cry 4 have left fans scratching their heads and reaching for their demon-slaying weapons. But fear not, fellow demon hunters, for there is still hope lurking in the shadows.
Now, you might be wondering, "What devilry is afoot? Why would Capcom banish these demon-slaying classics?" Well, according to the sneaky Steam Database (via PCGamesN), both games received a chilling request from their publisher to be "retired" from the storefront. It seems like someone pulled a disappearing act, leaving us with more questions than answers. But where there's darkness, there's usually a flicker of light.
These two games may have vanished from Steam, but they're not completely banished from existence. Devil May Cry 3 finds solace in the HD Collection, where it can still be enjoyed alongside its demonic brethren. And fear not, demon-slaying aficionados, for Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition still stands tall, ready for battle. Alongside it, Devil May Cry 5 and the underrated DmC: Devil May Cry from Ninja Theory continue to tempt gamers with their demonic delights.
If you're feeling the sting of disappointment, don't despair just yet. There are whispers in the dark corners of the internet that Green Man Gaming and Humble still hold the keys to these elusive titles. But like a fleeting shadow, these keys may disappear faster than a demon banished back to the underworld. So, seize the opportunity before it slips through your fingers!
But wait, there's more! The disappearance of these Devil May Cry games follows closely on the heels of another vanishing act, as Spec Ops: The Line also made its grand exit from Steam and other marketplaces. According to publisher 2K Games, some pesky partnership licenses expired, leading to the delisting of this beloved classic. However, there might still be hope for Spec Ops fans, as its director, Cory Davis, tweeted with unwavering optimism, proclaiming that this is not the end for Spec Ops: The Line. A glimmer of hope shines through the darkness!
As we bid farewell to Devil May Cry for now, let's not forget the talented director behind the demon-slaying madness, Hideaki Itsuno. While he puts the finishing touches on Dragon's Dogma 2, we can only imagine the epic battles and fantastical creatures awaiting us in this eagerly anticipated sequel. Itsuno's previous masterpiece, Devil May Cry 5, graced our screens in 2019, leaving us hungering for more stylish demon-slaying action.
So, my fellow devil hunters, don't let disappointment consume your souls. Keep your eyes peeled for hidden treasures and secret passageways that may lead you to these missing Devil May Cry games. And remember, where there are demons, there are demon hunters ready to rise to the challenge. Until then, let's sharpen our blades, polish our guns, and prepare for the next thrilling chapter in the world of Devil May Cry!
