Capcom director Hideaki Itsuno has confirmed that a development update on Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be shared as soon as possible. As translated by Gematsu from Japanese magazine Famitsu, Itsuno has made it clear that things on the development front are going well and there is nothing to worry about regarding the sequel.
The last time gamers heard anything concrete about Dragon’s Dogma 2 was in June when Hideaki Itsuno and his team of developers announced the game with a T-shirt. Since then, Capcom has not shared anything else about the status of the game. Details about the long-awaited sequel have been scarce for a long time, but Itsuno provided another update in response to Famitsu, making it clear that the game is still in the development process, but that players won’t have to wait too much longer to find out more.
“I’m currently immersed in the production of Dragon’s Dogma 2, so much so that I’m losing track of what season it is. Things are going well, so I hope to advance our development so that we can share an update with you as soon as possible. ” Itsuno said when asked what his ambitions are for the new year.
The most players know about Dragon’s Dogma 2 so far is that the game will use the same engine as Resident Evil Games. Unfortunately, Capcom has not given any release window yet. Other than that, nothing has been committed to the platforms that Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be released on, leaving gamers in doubt about the pace of development.
Considering Hideaki Itsuno hasn’t been named in any projects other than Devil May Cry 5 since 2019, Dragon’s Dogma 2 has been in development for over three years. However, what stage of development Capcom is at is still uncertain. Dragon’s Dogma 2 was first revealed during the franchise’s 10th anniversary in June 2022. Afterwards, it was buried in silence with no information on platforms or release date. Heading into the new year, Itsuno has appeared in a Japanese publication, assuring players that all is well with the development process.
Gamers will likely hear more about Dragon’s Dogma 2, the sequel to 2012’s hit action RPG Dragons Dogma, sometime in 2023, based on Itsuno’s comments. The original was praised by gamers and media alike with references to its wide range of tactical options, hack-and-slash combat, and farming system. It was also recently confirmed that the lack of multiplayer in the original game is planned to be rectified in Dragon’s Dogma 2.
