provisional name is Project Bella (final name will not be Dragon’s Dogma 2 or have the Dragon’s Dogma title at all)
next gen action/tactical third person RPG
It's basically Dragon's Dogma soft rebooted (another universe)
1 starting class (explorer), then 4 main plus 12 subclasses
single player like DA plus 3 players co-op only available at the frontier dungeons (player + pawn)
not open world but vast regions and a fuckton of dungeons
Minae Matsukawa is the lead designer, Itsuno will be on board next month (bear in mind that I don't know how old this leak is)
core team is 90 people plus 40-50 people from internal studios and japan studio
pre-production ended last september, first quality test deadline is set to june
RE engine but heavily tweaked with new in-house middleware (AI, physics)
Ralph Inneson is listed as VA for a character called Lord Benjamin (previous Arisen)

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Sounds cool - I wonder why they don't want to attach the Dragon's Dogma name to it though? Especially since it sounds like they're using a similar class system as well as the pawn system.

Curious to see how this plays out. I loved the original so I'm excited to see a true next-gen version of it.

Interesting timing...

This was from the reddit PS5 "leak" earlier:

-Capcom will show a demo of their updated RE engine and announce Dragon's Dogma 2 exclusively on the PS5. Deep Down was not all to waste and Capcom wisely decided to build upon it and create this new DD. It's a really impressive game technically. Full open world with fights and monsters similar to a Monster Hunter game. It will run at 60 fps on PS5.


Lots of smoke about this at the moment.

If its exclusive, maybe that explains the name/spiritual successor thing? Like the reverse of Demon's souls

Yeh possibly because Sony tend to be reluctant to have exclusives where they don't have ownership of the IP.

They are no strangers to signing timed exclusivity with 3rd party publishers IPs. I don't understand how would they object.

You know deep down you want it to be true.
Nah again. :p

Deep Down never looked like Dragon's Dogma. Everyone who really played Dragon's Dogma understood that.

However that doesn't mean that i didn't liked what i saw from Deep Down.

I want to believe.
I enjoyed Dragon's Dogma more than Dark Souls, yes... I'm aware that's heresy and inquisition will knock down my door as I click Post Reply, but I just had a good time with that game as opposed to Souls games which constantly tries to sucker punch me. Just give this a lighthearted story that makes some goddamned sense and I'll be happy.

4Chan stays winning, I swear when they drop bombs they tend to end up being real.
Not like some sites or people that go look at me I know stuffz left/right for attention.

Not sure if serious.

There are 2.7 Bajillion bullshit rumors for every 1 legit rumor from 4chan.

I am serious, the stuff that ends up being real is the stuff that makes news not the obvious fake stuff.

Again with the "3 player co op".
That sentence is a bit confusing. It says:
"single player like DA plus 3 players co-op only available at the frontier dungeons (player + pawn) "
At first it sounds like they mean online coop but then it says "player+pawn". Personally i really want them to keep the Pawn system (and improve upon it) but it would be nice if there's also another optional mode for online coop.

If we got a spiritual successor to Dragons Dogma with co-op I would be sooo happy.

Please Capcom. I believe!!

8+ years after release of the original everything/anything is a "soft reboot" ie means nothing

That death stranding leak was pretty much on point .. remember that

As someone who absolutely loved Dragon's Dogma, I hope this is true. I've played through DD on PS3, PC, and Switch now and really enjoy it despite its many issues. I do hope they focus on giving it a more interesting world/story if this is real.

Interesting, if this is true and they don’t scrap anything that the anonymous poster/leaked dropped on 4chan then it Sounds like what Dragon Age Inquisition should have been like.

Everything seems great. If true, I'm glad they didn't scrap the pawn system. It was my greatest worry for a sequel.

Dragons Dogma is easily one of the best action RPGs ever.

I continue to want Deep Down also, though.

I wonder why they do not want to attach the Dragon's Dogma name to it, the series has a cult following and they did re-release Dark Arisen not too long ago.

Either way I hope this is true because I have been waiting for a proper sequel for quite some time.

Maybe these rumors are kinda off and the game is much different than Dragon's Dogma (something like Deep Down) so they want to keep the IPs separate.

You're actually posting this lol? There are dragons dogma threads everyday just like there is a nintendo thread every page. Do not believe in this rumor.

i doubt this...the IP trademark still alive isnt it? why need to change the IP name..not to mention capcom already acknowledge the potential of the title and gamers clamouring for sequel for years....changing the name is kind of weird move

also, Minae Matsukawa ? seriously where is Yoichiro Ikeda ?

why suddenly drop open world? did they target cross gen? with ssd they no need much instance/area connected /dungeon with loading screen anymore ..seamless open world is possible

this is sounds more like Deep Down reboot to me

More 4chan rumor shit? The ones that have been accurate are so low in number it's laughable. Remember last year it seemed like every few weeks another 4chan rumor would come out? MGS 5 demon edition anyone?
