Devil May Cry 5 Director Was Considering Making Dragon's Dogma 2 First

Richard Walker

During our recent hands-on with Devil May Cry 5, we had the opportunity to chat with Director Hideaki Itsuno about all manner of things, including the possibility of a long-awaited sequel to Dragon's Dogma. Launched back in 2012, Dragon's Dogma enjoyed something of a cult following, and rightly so.

Dragon's Dogma is still seen as a fine RPG, even getting the remaster treatment for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back in 2017. As well as working on multiple Devil May Cry games (including DmC), Itsuno also directed Dragon's Dogma, so naturally, we quizzed him about the possibility of a follow-up.

"I'd love to make another Dragons Dogma," Itsuno told us. "In fact before we started making Devil May Cry 5 I was really thinking hard and long about whether I want to make another Dragon's Dogma game at this point or do I want to make a new Devil May Cry game.

"At that point of time, I ended up choosing to do a Devil May Cry game," he added, "but I would still love to make another Dragon's Dogma if I still could."

There's certainly demand for a Dragon's Dogma 2, the first game's pawn system in particular proving a neat addition to the game's RPG action. Here's hoping that once Devil May Cry 5 is in the can, Itsuno turns his attention to a Dragon's Dogma sequel.

Devil May Cry 5 is out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 8th March, and our full interview with Hideaki Itsuno will be going up on the site soon.

  • Please Itsuno. Also you misspelled his name in the third paragraph.
  • I can't fault him for choosing DMC5 over Dragon's Dogma, but please do a Dragon's Dogma sequel next. Adding a co-op option would make my year.
