The Devil May Cry series of video games are set in the modern day, developed by Capcom and created by Shinji Mikami. Originally intended to be a sequel in Capcom's Resident Evil series, Devil May Cry has been cited as the beginning of a sub-genre of action games by the name of Extreme Action.

Recently, however, there has not been much more revealed in the world of Devil May Cry, or "DMC." The most recent update was the release of Devil May Cry 4 on the PC.
