Capcom is gearing up to hype up its fans with a special showcase for Dragon’s Dogma 2, scheduled for Tuesday, November 28. The event promises a 15-minute livestream, featuring new gameplay reveals directly from the game’s director Hideaki Itsuno, and producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi. Fans are eagerly anticipating this event, which will be streamed at 1 pm PT / 4 pm ET / 9 pm GMT, offering a glimpse into the much-awaited sequel to the beloved original.
Adding to the excitement, recent reports suggest a potential release date for Dragon’s Dogma 2 – Friday, March 22, 2024. This unconfirmed date has emerged following a leak by the European classification body PEGI, which also assigned an 18-rating to the game. This information aligns with Capcom’s previous hint about releasing an undisclosed major title by the end of its fiscal year, concluding in March 2024.
The anticipation for Dragon’s Dogma 2 has been building since its announcement last year, during a livestream celebrating the 10th anniversary of the original game. The sequel, set to release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, has been described as retaining the charm and unique elements of its predecessor while introducing fresh gameplay mechanics. Recent hands-on previews from several outlets praised the sequel for maintaining the distinctiveness that has endeared it to its hardcore fan base.
Capcom’s showcase next week is expected not just to reveal new gameplay elements but to potentially confirm the release date as well. This event marks a big moment for fans of the series, who have been waiting eagerly for more information since the game’s initial announcement.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 has been a topic of keen interest in the gaming community. The original game has become somewhat of a cult classic, praised for its superb gameplay which rather trumps that of more popular fantasy RPGs like Skyrim.
