Straight-up action game is outdated while action RPG is becoming more and more popular. It draws from both RPG and action crowds. One most recent and most relevant example, Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden 3 barely sold over 100K while their no name action-RPG Ni-Oh sold over 1M.

With the success of games like Souls, Bloodborne, Nier-Automata, The Witcher 3, Ni-Oh and Capcom's very own Dragon's Dogma I think it makes more sense for Capcom turning DMC5 into action-RPG

No, besides Nier Automata has some light rpg elements (and not much more than your average dmc game)
Currently Playing : Nier Automata and Xenoblade Chronicles 2

but it is broken, it's irrelevant, the genre is dying. there's no good hack-slash action game in the last few years, while action-RPG is becoming more popular

I actually wouldn't mind this tbh. Idk if it would fit well though. But I agree that just straight up action doesn't appeal to me. RPG elements add enough depth for me to be satisfied.

maybe something like a faster more stylish bloodborne , and it would have to be Sparda as main character for me.

They need to delve more into Sparda's and their mothers story as a whole now. Great direction for them to go. Also Sparda brothers conciliation please. Uncharted 4 has reminded how compelling a story of brotherhood can be. The feels.

Vanilla Ninja Gaiden 3 was bad though, it only became decent after Razor's Edge.

Bayonetta 1 did do 1mil.
DMC4 did too (2-3mil IIRC).

There is room for both types.
