Dragon’s Dogma is an action role-playing game by Capcom originally released for the Playstation 3 and the XBOX 360 back in 2012. Ten years later, Capcom celebrated the 10th anniversary of the game on June 16, 2022.
We got to see the director Hideaki Itsuno who dramatically announced the sequel for the game, Dragon’s Dogma 2. Here’s everything we know about Dragon’s Dogma 2: release date, leaks, and everything else!
Dragon’s Dogma 2: Release Date
Although Hideaki Itsuno left a lot of questions unanswered during the 10th-Anniversary Stream of Dragon’s Dogma, he did mention that the game is already under development.
He said that everyone in the development team is already working hard on the game and that fans of the series should look forward to it.
Itsuno is a staple developer and director for the Devil May Cry Series. With Itsuno leading the helm, he directed Devil May Cry 2, 3, 4, and 5. Let’s take a look at the development cycle of Devil May Cry 5.
Capcom initiated the development of Devil May Cry 5 in January 2016. They later announced it in 2018, with a release date of March 2019.
Now, what does this have to do with Dragon’s Dogma 2? If we follow Itsuno’s latest development cycle, we could have a Dragon’s Dogma 2 release date of 2023 to 2024 if all goes well.
Dragon’s Dogma 2: Leaks
It seems like Dragon’s Dogma 2 is still very early in development; however, we do have some leaks from a now-deleted 4chan post. Obviously, take this information with a grain of salt.
- Only one starting class: Explorer
- The warrior class is now a gladiator.
- The mystic knight is now a hybrid with the alchemist.
- A wing of a small ruined bastion will serve as the centralized hub for the first part of the game.
- Camping in a few areas is possible once you have cleared the enemies.
- Enemies will depend on the time and the weather.
- There is somewhat a fast travel system; however, you’re able to track the location of your party with a map. Fast traveling has the risk of getting ambushed and losing items.
This other leak comes from a DuskGolem, a prominent and credible leaker who gave us the information regarding Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remake and Resident Evil Village. According to DuskGolem, Dragon’s Dogma 2 will use the RE Engine, seen in these games, and even Devil May Cry 5.
Now, Capcom developed this engine solely for the Resident Evil 2 Remake. However, it had since shown its potential to be an all-around optimized engine when Devil May Cry 5 developers used it for their game.
That’s everything we know about Dragon’s Dogma 2 for now. We’ll continually update this article regarding gameplay and trailer breakdown once we have more information about it. Are you excited about Dragon’s Dogma 2? Leave us your thoughts in the comments section!
