Dragon’s Dogma 2 Announced; Developed Using Re Engine, Directed by Hideaki Itsuno
Capcom announced that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is in development by director Dragon’s Dogma 2.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 is being developed by Capcom’s Re Engine, to deliver an open-world action experience to fans. Still, only a logo was revealed and more information will be released soon. Further, the game will be directed by Hideaki Itsuno.
Itsuno-sen spoke about his time playing pen-and-paper RPGs, which led him to fall in love with high fantasy and RPGs. He went on to develop combat games such as Capcom’s Street Fighter II. By the year 2000, Itsuno-san had released multiple titles for Capcom’s arcade division and began piecing together the first concepts for a game that would eventually become Dragon’s Dogma. This dream would have to wait, however, as Itsuno was assigned to finish the production of Devil May Cry 2, and its sequels Devil May Cry 3 and Devil May Cry 4.
More information about Itsuno-son was provided by the publisher:
After completing production on the Devil May Cry games, Itsuno returned to his passion project at last. The distinct approach to magic combat and the ability to grapple towering foes already set Dragon’s Dogma apart from its contemporaries, however, it was the game’s unique Pawn System that helped cement its place as a fan favorite. This special system was born from Itsuno’s desire to keep the game a single-player experience, while still allowing players to feel connected to one another by sharing the AI companions they create and train. As development progressed, it was the production team’s trips to the United Kingdom that inspired the rolling hills and architectural identity of the world players would explore.
We’ll keep you updated on the development of Dragon’s Dogma 2.
