The game was released in North America on 29 March 2013. A month later, the PlayStation 3 version was released as an early-release title for the PlayStation Network. On 9 May 2013, the European version was released as an early-access title for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The Xbox 360 version was released on 18 May 2013.

As a result of the successful release of DmC, Capcom announced a new title, Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, and revealed that they had begun developing a new title, the seventh mainline Devil May Cry game. The new game was to feature a more cinematic style than previous games in the series and will be a prequel set before DmC, featuring Nero, Dante's brother. The announcement was released at the 2013 E3 trade show in June. The new game was developed at Capcom's Osaka studio, Kojima Productions. A playable demo was released in September 2013.
In September 2015, Dante was added to the roster of Halo 5: Guardians, making him the first playable non-human character in the franchise. As part of the announcement, DmC was re-released for Xbox 360 and PS3 as a downloadable title for the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network platforms respectively, alongside an expansion called DmC Devil May Cry HD Collection. Both releases feature updated graphics, as well as the ability to play with the Kinect motion sensor.
Dante's iconic outfit will be available in four different color schemes, with twenty skins that vary from his base and Angel and Devil Modes, in addition to over twenty pieces of alternate in-game equipment.
At Gamescom 2012, Capcom showed the opening of DmC to a packed room, who responded with loud applause and the game received a 10 minute standing ovation. Also at Gamescom, it was announced that the game would be released on March 8 in North America and March 9 in Europe. On December 12, 2012, the first gameplay footage was revealed at the PlayStation 3's press conference at Paris Games Week, and was met with positive critical reception. The game was released on March 8, 2013, to moderate sales. It was released on the Xbox 360 on July 16, 2013. DmC was met with critical acclaim, but commercial success was lacking, selling only 800,000 units in the United States by June 2014. Capcom has stated they had planned to release a multiplatform version of the game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, however, the limited resources of the company were not enough to make such a release.
On April 21, 2015, an official soundtrack was released titled simply DmC Original Soundtrack, composed and arranged by Masashi Hamauzu. The soundtrack features the music in the game, as well as new themes of the Cold Souls, Lost Paradise, and Secret Garden chapters. 827ec27edc
