Dragon’s Dogma 2: Serious Technical Issues Arose With The Game?!

Fans looking forward to Dragon’s Dogma 2 on consoles may be disappointed with the latest news regarding the game’s framerate and other features…



Dragon’s Dogma 2 is rumoured to launch on PlayStation and Xbox without 60FPS performance mode. The upcoming Capcom fantasy RPG sequel is finally out in a couple of months. (A quick twelve years after the original title was released in 2012…) Considered a cult classic among RPG fans, Dragon’s Dogma is best known for its infantry system. This allows players to share and recruit fellow pedestrians created by each other in their own game.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 has already been surrounded by a bit of drama before its upcoming release on March 22nd.

The game’s director, Hideaki Itsuno, recently confirmed that players will have to use the same limited fast travel system that was a drawback for many fans of the first game. In this somewhat confusing travel system, players had to find and use rare, single-use items called Ferrystones to fast travel to Port Crystals the player placed in the world. The later Dark Arisen version of Dragon’s Dogma added an unlimited Eternal Ferrystone to players’ inventory. However, such a cramped, fast travel system can cause headaches for Dragon’s Dogma 2 players in 2024, especially newcomers.

Now that Dragon’s Dogma 2 is less than two months away from its release, rumours have surfaced that the sequel may be missing key features.

As reported by Push Square, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is rumoured to only run at 30 FPS on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S consoles. There are no plans to introduce a 60 FPS mode anytime soon. While 30 FPS is certainly an acceptable frame rate for many, the 60 FPS performance option on consoles has become standard for most AAA games this generation.

Push Square also pointed out a trailer from IGN Japan. The latter claims that Capcom’s fantasy sequel offers only a single save slot. This is quite unfortunate for the players. Many were hoping to try out the game’s different classes and builds through multiple saves. As in the first game, we will undoubtedly have the opportunity to change classes. However, experimenting with different save slots is vital for many RPG fans. In fact, even the first Dragon’s Dogma only provided one save slot. But franchise newcomers who recently enjoyed other big RPGs like Baldur’s Gate 3 or Starfield may be disappointed by the sequel’s single save slot.
