Will there be a Dragon’s Dogma 2? Everything we know so far

Despite Dragon’s Dogma being released back in 2012, it still regularly tops lists of people’s favorite role-playing games. Indeed, if you like games similar to Skyrim, you’re probably going to like Dragon’s Dogma.

Despite its success and widespread acclaim, as of yet Capcom haven’t announced a sequel, something which would be music to the ears of the game’s fans. There have been many rumors, though, and we’ll break them down here. Will there be a Dragon’s Dogma 2 or not?

Back in November 2020, Capcom fell victim to a cyber attack in which their tentative release schedule for the next 4 years was made public by an unknown hacker. Despite this being concerning from a security standpoint, there was some good news among the bad. Namely, there was a Dragon’s Dogma 2 leak. 

Despite Capcom neither confirming or denying the suspected upcoming release of Dragon’s Dogma 2, many believe it is highly plausible due to the recent push by Capcom to rejuvenate some of their most popular series, most notably the Resident Evil and Devil May Cry franchises. 

According to the leaks, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is scheduled to be released in 2022, so fans of the hack-and-slash RPG have reason to be hopeful. Credence was further given to the rumors by IGN, whose reporters seemingly confirmed that a new Dragon’s Dogma was in development, along with the suggestion that Street Fighter 6 will be released, too. Other noteworthy games reportedly being released include a Resident Evil 4 Remake and Rockman

It’s also noteworthy that the principle game director who worked on Dragon’s Dogma, Hideaki Itsuno, has repeatedly referred to the game as one of his best creations and it is evident that he is very fond of the franchise.

Despite there being no video game sequel yet, there is a Dragon’s Dogma anime dark fantasy series based on the game. It’s a Netflix exclusive series that was released in September 2020 and received a generally positive response. 

Most seemed to concede that, despite not being as good as the game released in 2012, the anime series was a good attempt to keep the franchise alive and was fairly entertaining. So far there has been 1 season consisting of 7 episodes, but a second series of Dragon’s Dogma has been confirmed by Netflix, with an anticipated release date sometime in 2021 or 2022. 

How Many Endings does Dragon’s Dogma have?

Dragon’s Dogma and Dark Arisen are essentially the same thing. When the original game (Dragon’s Dogma) was ported to the PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One, it was done so under the name Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen

In short, Dark Arisen contains a new Bitter Black Island area PLUS all of the DLC that was released for the vanilla copy of the game. So, if you want the complete experience, you’ll probably want to get Dark Arisen
