Dragon's Dogma sequel is reportedly shaping up to be a stunning game when it comes to visuals. According to the leak, it has been internally delayed to late 2022/early 2023.
We already know that Dragon's Dogma 2 is in development thanks to the Capcom leak, which revealed the publisher's full roadmap for years ahead. In the leaked roadmap, Dragon's Dogma sequel was reportedly scheduled for release in Q2 fiscal year 2022 but Capcom are yet to officially confirm this and if Dragon's Dogma 2 is indeed in development.
Today, we have a rumour from 4chan that reveals some new details about the game and its release date. Since the rumour is coming from the controversial message board, we suggest you take it with a dose of scepticism just like any other unconfirmed info.
The leak states that there have been some development hiccups in the last months. Apparently, the team is satisfied with what they have achieved with the expanded RE Engine, especially in dungeons. "Magics are amazing but for now, there is a very limited ray tracing, some sources are baked in a smart way, especially a new kind of fake tone mapping," the leaker reveals.
However, the issues have occurred in large open areas with a lot of trees and vegetation. Some combat sequences in such locations have brought dev-kits to their knees, reportedly.
As for the reveal, the leaker says that game director Hideaki Itsuno would love to reveal the game as soon as possible. The release window is currently set for Q4 or Q1 2023.
