Dragon's Dogma 2 is officially in development, publisher and developer Capcom announced during a stream marking the series 10th anniversary.
The highly anticipated sequel is developed using RE Engine, which powers other titles from the publisher's portfolio, including Monster Hunter: World and Resident Evil Village.
Unfortunately, these are also the only details that were shared thus far. The announcement arrived at the end of the stream, which saw Director Hideaki Itsuno and other team members discuss how the original came to be.
Dragon's Dogma stood out among RPG fans thanks, in part, to how it made fights against big creatures more interactive, letting you climb onto them.
They were fearsome foes to begin with – almost reminding of the creatures you fight in Monster Hunter – only made more dangerous if you engaged them at night.
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen made its way to PC on January 15, 2016. The publisher was open to developing a sequel, given enough fan interest, and rumors about one kept popping up ever since.
It will certainly be interesting to see how the series will evolve and how the switch to RE Engine will impact gameplay and visuals.
The scarcity of details could mean that Dragon's Dogma II is still in early development, but it hopefully won't take too long before we get our hands on it.
