Details on Dragon’s Dogma 2 have been unfortunately thin. Luckily, the game’s director, Hideaki Itsuno, has a status update in a statement to Japanese magazine Famitsu, stating that development is “moving along well.” The last time we heard anything substantial about the sequel to Capcom’s open-world fantasy adventure was in June, when Itsuno and other devs announced the game on a T-shirt.
A Dragon’s Dogma update is long overdue
I’m currently immersed in the production of Dragon’s Dogma 2, so much so that I’m losing my sense of what season it is. Things are moving along well, so I hope to further our development progress so that we can share an update with you as soon as possible.
It’s surprising that we still don’t have a release date, let alone a release window, for Dragon’s Dogma 2. We know from the Dragon’s Dogma 10th Anniversary Stream that Capcom is using the RE Engine for the sequel. And well, that’s about it.
A substantial leak back in 2020 revealed that Dragon’s Dogma 2 was slated for a “Q2 FY22” release, but that has since passed. And it looks like both Street Fighter 6 and the Resident Evil 4 Remake will come out well before it.
Since then, a Dragon’s Dogma series on Netflix released in September 2020, which renewed some interest in the original game as well as re-release Dark Arisen.
