Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Is Bound For PS4 and Xbox One This Fall

Capcom teases the world with another Dragon's Dogma re-release instead of a sequel.

Capcom has quietly announced that Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this Fall. Japan will also be getting the PC version, which hasn't launched in that region yet. The news came via a post on the official Dragon's Dogma Facebook and Twitter pages, with little to no fanfare.

This re-release celebrates the game's fifth anniversary, with the original Dragon's Dogma launching in May of 2012 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Dark Arisen launched for the same platforms a year later and came to Steam in January of last year.

The game was helmed by Devil May Cry 2, 3, and 4 director Hideaki Itsuno. The title was intended to bring Capcom's action game experience from Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, and Monster Hunter, together with the best RPGs from Japan and the West.

Since then, word has been quiet on a sequel, with Itsuno offering a variety of potential projects, including Dragon's Dogma 2, Rival Schools 3, Devil May Cry 5, and "a new genre of fighting games". Those are all things I want, so... fingers crossed.
