Devil May Cry 5 game length – How long to beat

Despite the fact that we are still a couple of months away from Devil May Cry 5, its director has explained how long it will take to complete the game. Although game length is never an exact science, it’s nice to know at least a rough estimate of the Devil May Cry 5 game length. Read on to discover exactly how long to beat Devil May Cry 5.

Devil May Cry 5 game length – How long to beat

The action/hack-and-slash genre that Devil May Cry 5 is a part of will typically sit between 8-12 hours long. Of course, this can increase or decrease based on player skill and difficulty. According to the director of Devil May Cry 5, however, it is the longest game in the series. As part of a Q&A session in Seoul (thanks to DualShockers), Hideaki Itsuno explained that it should take around 15 hours to complete Devil May Cry 5.

This would place the game as the lengthiest one in the series and a relatively long game for its genre. Despite this, however, we cannot say for sure that it will take you 15 hours to complete the game. The length given was based upon internal tests and playthroughs that have taken place in Capcom headquarters. Of course, those developing the game will likely be of a high skill level, so it may take us even longer to play through the game.

Itsuno explains too, that 15 hours is an estimate; there are a lot of different factors that go into play with such things. There are multiple modes, too. The void, Cameo, and more will take up plenty of playtime depending on how much you play Devil May Cry 5. Although we cannot guarantee that Devil May Cry 5 will take you 15 hours to complete, it is a solid enough estimate to go on. We won’t have long to find out, either, as it releases on March 8, 2019, on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
