Culthit RPG ‘Dragon’s Dogma’ Finally Gets a Sequel

The Dogma of the Dragons the fantasy RPG world didn’t shake it when it arrived in 2012, but it gradually developed a loyal fan base. If you’re part of that group, you’ll be happy to hear that Capcom has confirmed work on a sequel as part of a live stream celebrating the 10th anniversary of the original. Not that there are many details, mind you. As my box reports, game director Hideaki Itsuno shared the Dragon’s Dogma II name, a logo and nothing else – so don’t expect a release in the near future.

The first game was flawed, with a clunky interface and a mediocre open-world experience. However, the wild story, enjoyable combat, and extensive customization helped win people over. It was popular enough to warrant an expansion (dark arisen), a Japan-exclusive online RPG (Dragon’s Dogma Online) and even a Netflix anime series.

It’s safe to assume Dragon’s Dogma II will focus on modern consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X. That said, it’s too early to say much more. A lot has changed in the last decade and a sequel will have to compete with action-RPG rivals like Elden Ring† Still, this could give Capcom more room to address the flaws of the original and otherwise shake up the game mechanics.
