Dragon's Dogma is a game Capcom fans have often wanted a sequel for. First released back in 2012, it saw an expanded edition soon after called Dark Arisen, which most recently made the journey to Nintendo Switch back in 2019.

Having received a Netflix adaptation last year, Capcom's been keeping this franchise alive. Back in November 2020 last year, we got news that a sequel is almost certainly arriving next year, though no official confirmation has been given at this time. However, for those looking to find out more, here's everything we know about Dragon's Dogma 2.

Leaks

When Capcom were struck by the ransomware attack last year, that revealed a lot of internal documents about upcoming plans. Several of those listed projects have since been confirmed - like Great Ace Attorney, Resident Evil 4 VR and Monster Hunter Rise's PC port - and "Dragon's Dogma 2" was also listed. That was the first inkling that the game was in development, which all changed once the game was officially announced in summer 2022.

Release date speculation

Capcom's leaked internal documents suggested a tentative release date for Q2 2022. That would have placed the game releasing at some point between April-June 2022. But right now, at the time of writing, the game has only just been confirmed. As such, it's likely that with Covid-19 causing widespread delays across the gaming industry that this game might also have been pushed back considerably.

Now the game is official, it's likely we'll find out more about a release date at some point in the near future. Until then, feel free to read up on the FIFA 23 beta, as well as our predicted ratings and news on the web app!
