Game director Hideaki Itsuno speaks in an interview with Play (via Wccftech) About Dragon's Dogma 2, which will be released on March 22, 2024 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series For Itsuno, there was supposed to be a sequel to the niche classic long before that. According to his statement, he wanted to begin work immediately after completing the first part. Instead, he and Capcom developed Devil May Cry V. He even apologizes to fans for the long wait and thanks them for their continued support of the series.
Dragon's Dogma 2 will have more realistic NPCs
One of the pillars of Dragon's Dogma is the pawn system. These customizable NPCs accompany the player and provide tireless support in battles. Of course, a lot has happened in the last ten years since the release of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, and this has also benefited the comrades: “We have not only increased the number of different pawn voices, but also the variety of different situations they interact with.” The Pawns are supposed to be true friends who will “support you on your adventure, give you advice and encourage you.”
Dragon's Dogma 2 contains elements of high fantasy and dark fantasy. But as with most Capcom games, the humor and funny situations are not neglected: “We had sessions that lasted for days […]. The funniest ideas have always been the ones people come up with when we're working late. When it came to implementing these ideas, we asked the question “Can we really bring something so silly into the game?” Pushed it aside and installed as many of them as possible.” Capcom has already announced the system requirements for PC.
