The release date for Dragon’s Dogma 2 has appeared on its official Steam store page, just hours before it was supposed to be announced during a special live-streamed showcase.
At the time of writing, searching for Capcom’s highly anticipated action role-playing game on the digital storefront reveals that it’s set to release - at least on PC - on March 22, 2024, which means that there’s less than four months to wait. It’s not currently known if this same release date will apply to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game, but there’s no doubt that we’ll find out before the end of the day.
The 15-minute Dragon’s Dogma 2 Showcase was first announced on November 17, but early this morning (November 28), Hideaki Itsuno confirmed the news that all fans had been hoping for - the showcase would indeed reveal the release date. However, it seems that the information slipped through Steam’s net slightly sooner than planned.
Furthermore, this apparently isn’t the first time that Dragon’s Dogma 2’s release date has surfaced online. As GamesRadar+ reports, the very same March 22 release date reportedly appeared on the PEGI age rating website earlier this month, but it was seemingly deleted before TRG was able to verify it.
Anyway, even if it seems that the highlight of the showcase has been unveiled, there’s no doubt that today’s showcase will be an exciting watch for anyone looking forward to the game as it promises the reveal of new in-game footage. If you’re interested, you’ll be able to watch it from Capcom’s YouTube channel at 4pm ET / 1pm ET / 9pm GMT, which is the equivalent of 8am AEDT on November 29.
If you want more Dragon's Dogma 2 details, we had a hands-on with a preview build of the game back in September. We were impressed with the "responsive and intelligent AI party members" and the "mythological" feel of the game.
