Rumor: Devil May Cry 5 to launch after 2012?

We’ve been hearing rumors of a Ninja Theory-developed Devil May Cry 5 since April now. Ninja Theory themselves have even refused to comment on the issue. Today, if the latest issue of PSM3 is any accurate, Devil May Cry 5 is in development at the studio, but its release may be a bit far back from now.

‘The Insider’ section of the magazine writes that a US source has revealed to them that “Heavenly Sword dev, Ninja Theory, is working on Devil May Cry 5 for current-gen consoles.”

However, it goes on to say: “We hear it isn’t currently on Capcom’s two year schedule, but don’t rule out a surprise announcement at E3.”

So, a possible announcement at E3 and a 2012 release date? What are your thoughts?
