Twitch’s free Devil May Cry promotion with Twitch Prime has been delayed

Capcom plans to re-release their Devil May Cry Trilogy next week on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 13th, bringing the first two games in the series to PC for the first time. 

These remasters will include updated visuals, support for higher resolutions and support for 60FPS framerates, delivering the best Devil May Cry experience to date.

Yesterday, Twitch subscribers on PC gamers were expecting to receive a free copy of Devil May Cry’s PC release for free with their Twitch Prime subscription, though thanks to a technical issue this released has been delayed for a week. This offer will now start on March 6 and end on April 3rd, allowing PC users to access the title for free one week before the trilogy launches on March 13th. 


      Due to unforeseen technical circumstances, we are shifting the free distribution period of the original Devil May Cry on @TwitchPrime to March 6 – April 3, 2018. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This release will be the first time that Devil May Cry will be available on PC, hopefully offering support for both mouse/keyboard controls as well as modern gamepads. This free add-on will be available through the Twitch launcher, the company’s alternative to Steam, which has so far not had much mainstream success.   



Devil May Cry 3 is the only game in the original Devil May Cry trilogy to see a PC release. Sadly, this version of the game lacks decent keyboard/mouse control options and offers some lacklustre gamepad support, making this version of the game very difficult to play when compared to its modern counterparts. Hopefully, this HD re-release will fix the issues that are present in the game’s original PC version, as well as add some visual enhancements for modern systems. 

In the US the Devil May Cry HD collection is set to cost $29.99 in the US and £24.99 in the UK.  Capcom is also rumoured to be working on Devil May Cry 5, though this has not been officially confirmed by the publisher.
