Capcom has officially announced Dragon’s Dogma 2, a sequel to the studio’s 2012 action role-playing game.
Hideaki Itsuno, the director of the original Dragon’s Dogma, has announced the sequel to the end of the live broadcast of 10 Years of Dragon’s Dogma today. In addition to knowing that the new game is being developed in the RE Engine, we received no further information about the game, other than a logo on a t-shirt worn by Itsuno.
Dragon’s Dogma was directed by Capcom’s Hideaki Itsuno, best known for his work on Devil May Cry. Dragon’s Dogma’s approach to real-time combat in a dark world of medieval fantasy intrigued fans, but it was the deep action system, AI-controlled allies and the deep roots of the role-playing game. which won him a lot of fans. Even when the series failed financially.
While fans’ hopes of a proper sequel were low, Capcom’s high-profile data leak, which indicated Dragon’s Dogma 2 underway, sparked new optimism.
There was also hope after Netflix chose to bring a Dragon’s Dogma anime to its subscribers in 2020. In our Dragon’s Dogma anime review, we said, “The action and the images are great, but the meandering plot doesn’t match the scope and size of the show. “
