Hideaki Itsuno, the man who directed Capcom's big titles such as Devil May Cry and Dragon's Dogma is working on an open-world game, which is created in RE Engine with expanded features to support a more open design for this title.
According to the latest rumours, Capcom could soon announce a brand new Dragon's Dogma game, which players have been longing for a couple of years now. A reliable insider for all things Capcom, Dusk Golem , claims that Hideaki Itsuno, the man who brought us the beloved Devil May Cry series and Dragon's Dogma, is currently working on a brand new project.
Itsuno's new game is apparently an open-world title, which suggests that it could be a Dragon's Dogma sequel since open-world Devil May Cry game does not sound very realistic at this point.
Furthermore, the insider claims that the game is built on the RE Engine, which Capcom initially built for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Since then, the publisher also used the engine for other franchises such as Devil May Cry and also upcoming Pragmata, so it's not surprising that this new title is built on this engine.
Since the game is set in an open world, Dusk Golem says that RE Engine features have been expanded to work with a more open format of the game.
As always with rumours and leaks, please take it with a grain of salt since Capcom are yet to officially announce a new Dragon's Dogma game. That being said, Dusk Golem is a reliable insider that previously revealed info about Resident Evil: Village and other Capcom-developed and published titles so it would not be surprising if he's spot on once again.
