Capcom alum Hideaki Itsuno has a very particular new year's resolution: to announce a new game in 2017. What could it be?

In a recent Tweet, Capcom's Hideaki Itsuno teased that he will reveal a new title next year. Considering Itsuno is responsible for a sizable chunk of Capcom games, there's lots of possibilities, but we have a pretty good reason to think it'll be Devil May Cry 5.

Although Itsuno's influence is found on various Capcom franchises like Capcom vs SNK and even JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, he's best known for his work on the Devil May Cry and Dragon's Dogma series. Itsuno directed four Devil May Cry games: Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening, Devil May Cry 4 and the prequel DmC.

On top of this, last year Capcom revealed that a new Devil May Cry game is in the development pipeline leading up to fiscal year 2017.

Other games on that list including Dead Rising 4, a new Monster Hunter game, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite and Resident Evil 7 have since come to fruition--and it's high time for Devil May Cry 5 to be announced.

On the flip side, there is a chance Capcom could reveal a new Dragon's Dogma game. Itsuno directed both Dragon's Dogma and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, and I've always hoped that Dragon's Dogma Online would make it West. Maybe Itsuno is even working on Capcom's long-lost Deep Down game, too.

But given all the evidence, we really think it's Devil May Cry 5.
