There have been rumors for years, Capcom has recently suggested a return to IP, but we haven’t seen an RPG on Capcom Showcase. The Japanese have instead invited players to a special event later this week. Hope dies last?
In 2012, a new IP Capcom entitled Dragon’s Dogma debuted on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Action RPG set in fantasy realities was well received by journalists (78-80%), and after a year the developers proposed an extended and improved version of the game – Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen went to many more platforms: PS3 / X360 in 2013, PC in 2016 year, PS4 / XOne in 2017, Switch in 2019.
The brand community has been waiting for years for the announcement of a full-fledged sequel, but Capcom had a clear problem with IP, which did not achieve dizzying results and developers were much more willing to reach for brands such as Resident Evil, Monster Hunter or even Devil May Cry.
We didn’t see the game at the Capcom Showcase, but there will be a special event on June 16. Will we finally see Dragon’s Dogma 2?
