He only made the first Devil May Cry.

That's your post. Please, shut up and realize that we do know something about this game: that it's being handled by a third-rate developer.If an amateur boxer is going to take on a champion, it's only reasonable to assume that he'll be ripped to shreds. "
Nice logic you have there.  Ever heard of a boxer called Cassius Clay? Yeah....   How about you leave logic to those who can think.  Thanks. "

Your point of view regarding this game and Ninja Theory also applies.  ALL you know is that Ninja Theory are doing this game for Capcom.  That's the totality of your information.  You haven't played the game.  Yes, you've played one game from them previously (or purport to have) and possibly one demo of one unreleased game, neither of which are this game.  You're playing probabilities with an extremely limited set of criteria and somehow you think that makes you have an expert opinion.   It doesn't.  You certainly may have some grounds for concern, based on your limited exposure to their previous works and nobody is questioning that fact but what you lack are any sort of hard facts with regards to this specific game. I'm certainly not saying that you should trust them blindly but I'm definitively saying that you can't judge the game until it's out.  Clay won against Liston in a shocking win which he predicted and nobody thought would happen.  All the odds were against him too and there were countless 'expert' opinions like yours floating about saying there was no way he'd win, let alone in the first round. They were wrong and maybe you might be too. "
Of course I might be wrong. I might also be wrong about whether or not Gears of War 3 is going to be a great shooter, and about whether or not I'll find a bag containing a million bucks the next time I leave the house. That doesn't mean it isn't reasonable to assume that it will be, and that I won't.

"   Capcom obviously feels as if they can trust Ninja Theory to develop the next DMC and they're spending more money than you will.  They're not idiots and have a track record which is indicative of their success and experience. "
Capcom's track record when it comes to Devil May Cry, Western developers and modernizations/reinventions of series only makes me more concerned.

I really liked Viewtiful Joe, but the sequel... meh. The story felt forced, the bosses weren't as fun, the combat just felt like more of the same, and Silvia was a terrible addition.

Oh, and I know this isn't a case of every game after the first sucking, but I haven't enjoyed a single Metal Slug after 3.

What depth did the previous game have? "
Watch this:
  
And that's Nero. Dante has three times as many weapons and four different fighting styles.

The new developer is definitely my main concern. 
 
Things a Devil May Cry should have: 

  1. Responsive, razor-sharp controls.
  2. Smooth framerate.
  3. Depth.
 
Things Ninja Theory's games don't have: 
  1. Responsive, razor-sharp controls.
  2. Smooth framerate.
  3. Depth.
