With Dragon’s Dogma 2 hitting PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC later this month on March 22, I visited Capcom’s San Francisco, California, office to play the game for several hours. You can read my preview impressions of Dragon’s Dogma 2 here, but I also had the chance to speak with director Hideaki Itsuno, too. 

With more than a decade between the first Dragon’s Dogma and its sequel, I was curious if he and his Capcom team approached the size of player offerings differently. If you stick to mostly the golden path – the main story campaign – of Dragon’s Dogma, you’re looking at around 37 hours, according to HowLongToBeat, which aggregates players’ playtime for an average. Itsuno says to expect a similar length in the main narrative of Dragon’s Dogma 2. 

 

“For players that only focus on the things [to] go through the [game’s campaign], the playtime itself shouldn’t change that dramatically from the first game,” Itsuno tells me through a translator. “For the people that want to do everything, that see many things and are like, ‘Oh, I want to do this thing, oh that looks interesting,’ well, we put a lot of effort into adding as many elements as possible for this. There’s many things that could catch players’ attention and for those people, they will probably find their playtime significantly longer.” 

For reference, a completionist run of Dragon’s Dogma runs, on average, about 102 hours, according to HowLongToBeat, meaning Dragon’s Dogma 2 likely offers more than a hundred hours of content to discover and play through if you seek it out.
