I have always been confused about this. What exactly makes dmc2 be set afted the events in dmc4? As I remember dmc2 barely had a plot or cutscenes since Dante was never intended to be in the game in the first place. For all we know it could havd happened after dmc1, especially since we also never see Lucia again. So what exactly makes dmc2 be the last game chronologically before dmc5?

Originally people used the "Dante is trapped in the demon realm" thing to say that it had to be the last game chronologically.
It had since been explained in supplementary material that Dante was able to escape before the events of DMC4.

Play not to win but to push yourself beyond your own limits and you'll eventually learn to rise above.

Not "people". Capcom said DMC4 takes place after DMC1 while DMC2 takes place in the distant future but now while DMC5 came out they changed the timeline so that 2 is set between 1 and 4 so 2 isn't constantly looming on the horizon and they can shape DMCs future freely again.

The tie-in manga, Before the Nightmare, explains why 2 is now before 4.
