Though later than expected, Capcom has officially confirmed that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is currently in development.
During the season of E3 but no E3 2022, there were plenty of events and game announcements to be made, but Dragon’s Dogma fans waited patiently through the PlayStation and Xbox’s major game showcases. without any announcement about the series. Even the event organized by Capcom to widely introduce Resident Evil has absolutely no information about Dragon’s Dogma. Then, fans of the series waited patiently for the 10th anniversary event of Dragon’s Dogma, and that patience finally paid off.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 has been officially announced. This is the sequel to the most exciting action role-playing game of 2012, directed by game director Hideaki Itsuno. It’s unclear why Capcom chose to announce the game in a separate event that is likely to attract less attention, but the opportunity gave Itsuno time to thank fans for their continued support of the series. in the past decade.
It is a pity that details about Dragon’s Dogma 2 are very few. This announcement was made specifically for the end of the series’ 10th anniversary event and all that’s shown of the game is its logo. There is no trailer, no gameplay footage, no concept art or any kind of hint regarding what will be in the game. However, after this event, Capcom has confirmed that Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be built on the RE Engine, the engine used for all the new and recent Resident Evil games. That’s enough to say that Dragon’s Dogma 2 will look significantly better than the first game.
While Capcom can’t share any information about Dragon’s Dogma 2, they wanted to take this opportunity to encourage players to try out the first Dragon’s Dogma installment. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will be discounted on the modern platforms it’s available on, including PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One. Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will be listed for only $4.79 on Steam, which is only about 100,000 VND and will be discounted until the end of June 23.
All Capcom can offer regarding Dragon’s Dogma 2’s future news-related promise is to ask fans to follow the series on social media. Interestingly, Dragon’s Dogma’s Twitter account still contains information related to Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and there is no information about Dragon’s Dogma 2 yet.
The lack of information regarding Dragon’s Dogma 2 suggests that it could be a long time before the game’s release date. While Capcom’s 2020 leaks suggest that Dragon’s Dogma 2 could launch soon, 2023 could be the most optimistic time that the game could launch.
