I can’t believe it’s been ten years since Dragon’s Dogma launched. It certainly doesn’t feel like it given how often I see it show up on my timelines either from sales or from mutuals discovering the game for the first time.
To celebrate the series’ anniversary, Capcom has launched a website dedicated to Dragon’s Dogma.
“Dragon’s Dogma, first released in 2012, is celebrating its 10th anniversary!” says Hideaki Itsuno. “Thank you, Arisen, for taking up arms and braving through the impossible challenges laid ahead of you. We are forever grateful for your support throughout the years and hope you will join us in this momentous celebration of Dragon’s Dogma!”
A timeline on the main page breaks down the earliest beginnings including a digital comic prologue that launched in April 2012, the original game’s launch in May 2012, the expansion months later, the HD remaster in 2016, and the Switch port in 2019 and the Netflix series in 2020.
If you’re wondering why all the hubbub surrounding a game that sold moderately well over the years, it is likely this will lead to a reveal for Dragon’s Dogma 2. A sequel has been rumoured for some time now with the sequel being listed on the massive Nvidia leak in November 2021.
The reason this is of note is that quite a few games on that list have turned out to be real projects and releases.
