In preparation for the new year, Hideaki Itsuno announced on Twitter that he is working on a new game:
Happy New Year! I exert myself in order to announce a new game this year. Thank you.

Itsuno took over as director of the Devil May Cry games after Hideki Kamiya did the first one. More recently, Itsuno directed Dragon’s Dogma.
However, Itsuno has not elaborated on that Tweet further, so it may be awhile until we hear what he is up to. Could he be returning to Devil May Cry after Ninja Theory’s entry in the series, DMC: Devil May Cry? Or maybe he will revisit Rival Schools? Or maybe it will be a whole new IP completely. We’ll know when Hideaki Itsuno spills the beans sometime this year.
