Capcom gave us a very pleasant surprise. The publisher has announced Dragon's Dogma II, a continuation of the excellent action RPG from 2012.
- No target platforms or planned release date have been revealed.
- The devs' reticence on the subject suggests that the project is in the early stages of development.
- Dragon's Dogma II will utilize the RE Engine, which has been powering most of Capcom's games in the past few years.
- The team is headed by Hideaki Itsuno, who held the same role on the first installment.
The game was announced during a broadcast organized to celebrate the 10th birthday of Dragon's Dogma. The stream focused on the creators' memories of the game, but at the very end they unveiled T-shirts with the logo of the sequel.
Dragon's Dogma debuted in May 2012 on Xbox One and PlayStation 3. A year later, an expanded version was released, entitled Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. This release was later ported to PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
The announcement of a sequel is good news. Fans have been asking for a second installment for years, but for a long time there were many indications that it was unlikely to happen. In 2015, an online spin-off debuted, in the form of Dragon's Dogma Online. Unfortunately, it never left the borders of Japan, and its servers were closed in 2019.
