Hideaki Itsuno is working on a new project since his team finished Devil May Cry 5. We do not know what it is about, but in a message celebrating the new year has mentioned its existence again to say that it continues to progress; some rumors assured that it is Dragon’s Dogma 2, a continuation of his open-world action RPG that this time uses the engine of the latest Resident Evil.
Happy new year 2022! The next project is definitely ahead of last year. Please look forward to it.— Hideaki Itsuno (@tomqe) December 31, 2021
A very similar message was posted a year ago: “Happy New Year! You have played DMC5 SE? If you have new hardware, play it. Until then, practice with the Vergil DLC. The new parallel project is on its way. There is still a long way to go, but stay tuned for the announcement, “he commented in early 2021.
Itsuno is a senior director and designer at Capcom, responsible for numerous Devil May Cry and the aforementioned Dragon’s Dogma. Before I worked in fighting games Power Stone, Street Fighter Y Darkstalkers, and although his name is not as well known as that of other great figures in Japan, He is Capcom’s most important creative today.
The director has repeatedly mentioned his desire to return to Dragon’s Dogma.
Dragon’s Dogma had a relaunch on PS4 and Xbox One, an online game called Dragon’s Dogma Online that did not leave Japan and in 2020 an animated series will be released, so it seems that The developer has not forgotten about this adventure that debuted in 2012.
The director himself has occasionally mentioned his interest in returning to the fantasy of Dragon’s Dogma, which was one of Capcom’s biggest surprises in the last decade between the continuation of its more well-known sagas, such as Resident Evil, Monster Hunter The Street Fighter.
