Capcom’s US producer Alex Jones has confirmed to Eurogamer that the upcoming Ninja Theory Devil May Cry re-interpretation (not a reboot, see) will be outsourced on PC and not developed internally at Ninja Theory.
Instead, the PC port has been outsourced to a Polish-based porting, localisation and QA specialist company by the name of QLOC, a company that Jones described as a “pretty tight outfit”. QLOC’s previous PC efforts for Capcom include Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and Street Fighter x Tekken.
“Because it’s being developed out of house by a different developer from Ninja Theory there are logistical things involved. But the plan is to get it out shortly after the ship date for the console version,” said Jones. “I can’t give you a day and date. What I can say we’re endeavouring to get it out as shortly after the main game as possible so there’s as little a gap between those two as we can reasonably get. There is no word on what, if any, PC-specific features can be expected from the QLOC port.
