Dragon’s Dogma director Hideaki Itsuno has sparked speculation of a sequel announcement after retweeting the Capcom Showcase announcement.
Capcom Showcase, which airs June 13, promises “detailed news and updates on previously announced Capcom titles.” As such, it is believed that we will see newly revealed games like Street Fighter 6 and Resident Evil 4 Remake, we do not expect further confirmations. Still, because Itsuno quickly retweeted this, some are taking it as an announcement signal.
There has been speculation for years that a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma could be in the works, and Itsuno has often commented that he would like to do one. The expanded version of Dogma, Dark Arisen, has already been ported to PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, not to mention the 2020 anime adaptation on Netflix. The alleged Capcom sequel was seen in last year’s Nvidia GeForce Now leak as well.

Several listed projects have been officially confirmed, including Street Fighter 6, Resident Evil 4 Remake, Resident Evil 4 VR, and the location of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. On that list too – Dragon’s Dogma 2.
However, it is worth remembering that plans can always change. Even if a sequel was in development for two years, that doesn’t guarantee it’s still happening. Still, the evidence for Dragon’s Dogma 2’s existence is pretty strong and with Capcom Showcase, we only have a week to get an answer.
