Ninja Theory Handed Devil May Cry 5 Development Duties?

Apparently the latest issue of Game Informer has a quite tantalising rumour, which has been transcribed by gaming website The Silent Chief, hinting that Heavenly Sword and Enslaved developer Ninja Theory may well be handling development of Devil May Cry 5 for Capcom.
"Loose Talk has learned that Enslaved isn't the only game Ninja Theory is working on - we've heard that the Cambridge, England developer is being tapped for the next Devil May Cry", reports Game Informer's rumour page, if the transcription is to be believed.
"It is not totally unexpected, however; Capcom has said that although it is shying away from Western developer for new IP, it would continue to utilise them for known franchises, which DMC certainly is."
The timing for a new Devil May Cry certainly seems about right, and given Capcom's declaration that Western dev teams will continue to be involved with existing IPs, this rumour certainly has some credibility.
Still, as ever with these unsubstantiated rumours, we'll store this under the file marked, "take with pinch of salt".
