As part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma, a sequel has finally been announced. Dragon’s Dogma 2 is officially in the works and is set to land in 2023.
The announcement came as part of a video presentation commemorating the decade that has passed since Dragon’s Dogma first appeared on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Hideaki Itsuno, the director of the game, and key members of the development team, Daigo Ikeno and Kenichi Suzuki, announced the game by triumphantly unzipping their hoodies at the end of the presentation, revealing the name “Dragon’s Dogma II,” followed by a brief animation of the official logo treatment at the end of the video.
Before the big announcement, Itsuno gave a recap of the development of Dragon’s Dogma. It’s a fascinating look at the director and his inspirations in fighting games like Street Fighter and fusing that flexible combat system with a rich RPG story and gameplay. He also touches on the development of the pawn system and wants to create a single player RPG that feels like playing online with your friends. The presentation is worth seeing just because of this mini-documentary.
So do we, Itsuno-san
There’s no date yet for Dragon’s Dogma 2 or any footage of the game, but having it in development is a huge step forward for the series after all this time. Capcom has confirmed that the game will be developed using the company’s RE Engine, which powers games like Resident Evil Village, Monster Hunter Rise and the upcoming Street Fighter 6.
