William Yagi-Bacon, Capcom’s Vice President of Digital Platforms and Marketing, confirmed earlier this week on the ResetERA forums that the soon-to-launch PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X game console will support 4K resolution and 60 FPS framerate only with ray tracing turned off.
To simply put, both game consoles will run at 120 frames per second, provided, ray tracing feature is deactivated during gameplay.

Here’s an excerpt from Capcom’s VP of Digital Platforms and Marketing:
I know there have been concerns circulating across different threads concerning resolution and frame rate for XSX and PS5. Having checked with our DMC hype man Matt Walker, I can confirm that DMC5: SE will support [email protected] when RT is turned off. To recap: • 4K/30fps with Ray Tracing ON • 1080p/60fps with Ray Tracing ON • 4K/60fps with Ray Tracing OFF • Up to 120fps with Ray Tracing OFF
That’s all I can share for now. Expect previews/reviews in the coming weeks. We’re only three weeks away from launch!
This special edition will also come with features and game content not found initially on the Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 versions. The game will also include a new playable character like Vergil, who’s being added to all the game versions and as DLC. Also, the Legendary Dark Knight mode will be included as well as ray tracing support.
According to Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition official page description:
Take advantage of the next generation of consoles’ power and tailor the options to your preferred gameplay experience. Fine-tune your experience as you prioritize gorgeous and photorealistic lighting effects using ray-tracing, the sharpest resolution possible, or the highest framerates the series has ever offered.
Not enough? You’ll also be able to hear the action unfold around you with incredible 3D sound, and loading times go by in a blink to keep the thrills coming. All of this with even more intense new modes so you can push your style to the max. And the icing on the internal cake? Vergil joins the gang as a new playable character!
The PlayStation 5 version even uses the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers to let you feel the tension of battle in the tips of your fingers.
Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition will launch on PlayStation 5 on November 12th in North America and also on November 19th globally. As for Xbox Series X and S, the game will launch on those platforms on November 19th.
