DmC Devil May Cry Release Date Announced

Ever since Call of Duty‘s release date was announced, there has been an increase in the number of titles being announced that have pushed their release dates back. Capcom announced today that it would release “[DmC Devil May Cry] for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 15, 2013 in North America and Europe. In addition, PC gamers will also be able to experience the title with a Windows PC version whose development is well underway and scheduled for release later in 2013″. Personally, I think this might be a smart move but let’s not hope that the start of 2013 isn’t going to be a crowded one for gamers.
