Capcom: Deep Down “has nothing to do with Dragon’s Dogma”

No reason to think it's Dragon's Dogma 2 now.

Since its announcement at February’s PlayStation 4 reveal event, many have assumed Deep Down, Capcom’s next-gen action RPG running on its new Panta Rhei engine, is actually a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma. This does not appear to be the case.

“[Dead Rising 3] and Deep Down have nothing to do with Dragon’s Dogma,” Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson said on the Capcom Unity forums.

Well. That should settle that then.

    Interesting, here’s hoping it’s a 3rd person game. I wonder when they will show more. TGS?

    • Ritsujun

      It is third-person, there’s gameplay footage in the 2nd trailer.

  • Aldridge517

    So it’s entirely new IP. Cool.

  • xMCXx

    I can’t believe it’s not Dragon’s Dogma! ;)
    Also, what does Dead Rising have to do with it? xD

  • PrinceHeir

    lol i wouldn’t trust that Svensson guy.

    he already lied too many times, plus i would rather wait for an official japanese statement.

    i wouldn’t be surprised when the game is almost complete, capcom may realize they might have to back the Dragon’s Dogma name to get more sales.

    Good! Hopefully this can top that.

  • MasterSensei

    When has anyone ever said that Dead Rising 3 might be a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma?

  • bloodiOS

    It doesn’t really matter. I just want to see more of it at this year’s TGS.

  • Keegs79

    I am craving for more info on this game and for more reveals. I know Sony has some more hidden gems they are waiting to announce. Its so hard to be patient!

  • Ritsujun

    lol, of course DR3 has nothing to do with DraDog.

  • epy

    And then they release an epic trailer were “Deep Down” morphes into “Dragon’s Dogma: Downer and Deeper”… Why? Because I do not trust Capcom’s statements.

      “Of course, the Dragon’s heart can only be found, Deep Down”

  • chunkylover112

    Why would it have anything to do with Dead Rising 3? lol

  • Solomon_Kano

    Well, that’s kinda silly. Oh well, still interested to see where Deep Down goes.

  • Ace

    They might as well call it DeepThroat.
