Home / NewsYesterday Yesterday 6 4659 ShareCapcom has launched a special, anniversary Dragon's Dogma site.
What's it about? Gennady VorobyovDragon's Dogma was released in May 2012, so in 2022, it marks its tenth anniversary.
During that time, the series has had one and a half games and one anime, but Capcom pretends that it is a very important, thriving franchise.
I wonder why? They've dedicated a special page to Dragon's Dogma's anniversary.
There are encouraging words from Hideaki Itsuno, the head of the first installment, and a release timeline:April 2012 - digital comic book prologue.May 2012 - Dragon's Dogma for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.April 2013 - expanded edition, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360).January 2016 - Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for PC.October 2017 - Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
April 2019 - Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for Nintendo Switch.September 2020 - anime Dragon's Dogma for Netflix.Curiously, the Japanese version of the website timeline is more extensive: besides the above, it mentions a novel, a manga, a spin-off Dragon's Dogma Quest for iOS and PS Vita, and the MMORPG Dragon's Dogma Online born in 2015, which never released outside of Japan.
Illustration from the anniversary page.It turns out the world has only seen one numbered Dragon's Dogma in ten years of the series - it's just been ported to new platforms many times.
Japan was luckier, but even there the franchise hasn't seen a fresh release in seven years, and the pause has only been diluted with an anime for Netflix.Perhaps Capcom is heating up interest in Dragon's Dogma before the announcement of the next installment.
Rumors of Dragon's Dogma 2 have been around since at least 2020, when Capcom had a global leak.
The sequel was also glimpsed in the NVIDIA database leak - many of the games from there actually turned out to be real.
Finally, Hideaki Itsuno himself said he didn't mind going back to Dragon's Dogma, but he favored Devil May Cry 5 at the right time.Looking forward to an announcement somewhere at the summer game shows?
