After 10 long years of watching people ask for a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma, Capcom is finally making it happen. Series director Hideaki Itsuno announced the new game as a surprise reveal at the end of a 10-year anniversary mini-doc (opens in new tab) for the original Dragon’s Dogma.
“Sorry to have kept you waiting!” Itsuno said while dramatically unzipping his sweatshirt to reveal a Dragon’s Dogma 2 logo. “Everyone in the development team is hard at work creating a game that we hope you will enjoy. Please look forward to it!”
Itsuno then dropped the proverbial microphone and the stream ended after a short sizzle reel from the original game. In a follow-up tweet, Capcom also said that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is being made with RE Engine, the same engine used for the last handful of Resident Evil games and Monster Hunter Rise.
So that’s it for now—Dragon’s Dogma 2 is “currently in development,” Itsuno is directing it, and a lot of patient fans are presumably very happy.
I never quite clicked with Dragon’s Dogma, despite admiring its commitment to letting you climb beasts like I’m constantly doing in Dungeons & Dragons, but a proper sequel is a whole new chance to get on board. Considering today marks the reveal of a logo and not much else, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is probably a few years away.
Dragon’s Dogma II will begin the cycle anew.Join director Hideaki Itsuno as he reflects on how the world of Gransys came to be and shares the announcement of the upcoming sequel, in development using RE Engine:🐉 https://t.co/Q2HSN1fCji pic.twitter.com/JPp117xuOXJune 16, 2022
