“Sorry to have kept you waiting”
During the Dragon’s Dogma 10th anniversary stream, Capcom kept us waiting, but finally confirmed what we’ve all been waiting for: a sequel is happening!
Game director Hideaki Itsuno spoke about his origins with RPGs and the development process for the still-unique-to-this-day Dragon’s Dogma before showing his new t-shirt and confirming that Dragon’s Dogma II is “currently in development.”
Here’s… the logo:
According to Itsuno, “everyone in the development team is hard at work creating a game that we hope you will enjoy.” He closed the stream with a classic “please look forward to it,” and that was it. After much speculation, I’m just glad it’s now out in the open.
Dragon’s Dogma is something of a flawed (and charmingly funny) gem, and while we did eventually get Dark Arisen, the time is right for a firing-on-all-cylinders sequel. The series has picked up fans over the years — it even got a Netflix anime adaptation — and it’s clear that Itsuno is passionate about returning to high-fantasy role-playing action.
