Devil May Cry 5 might not get any post-launch content aside from the free update titled Bloody Palace. Granted, Capcom never really touted any DLC, but it comes as a bit of a surprise due to the modern gaming industry monetisation trends.

Devil May Cry 5 is a highly anticipated continuation to the main canon of the series, following Capcom's escapade that was DmC: Devil May Cry. Fans have been waiting for about 11 years since Devil May Cry 4 and it is quite understandable they want more content than just the base game.

This may not turn out to be the case as Capcom has never officially revealed plans for post-launch content, except the Bloody Palace free update. The information comes from a tweet by Matt Walker, a producer at Capcom. A fan asked him whether more post-launch content was on the way, to which Walker simply replied that the only plans currently are those tied to Bloody Palace.

Die-hard fans of the series may find this to be disappointing, but it is not necessarily a bad thing. Depending on how Devil May Cry 5 turns out, it could potentially be a throwback to the old days of gaming where the consumers would simply pay once for a full game and receive a polished product without waiting weeks or months for an unfinished game to be completed through updates and DLC, despite being released with a full price.

Those who want more replayability and longer lasting content should find plenty of fun with Bloody Palace once it comes as it has proven to be a popular mode in all the previous instalments, except the first Devil May Cry which is the only game that didn't feature this mode.

According to Capcom, Devil May Cry 5 will be the biggest entry in the series so far and the different protagonist should offer a decent amount of replayability. Considering some of us are still replaying DMC entries that are more than a decade old, it's not hard to imagine the latest game will have decent longevity itself.
