Dragon's Dogma 2 is Capcom's first $70 release

Capcom has announced that Dragon's Dogma 2 will be released in March, and the game is now available for pre-order. The game is the publisher's first $70 title.

The details:

  • Following the RPG's dedicated showcase yesterday, pre-orders for the game on PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PC have gone live, with the title launching on March 24, 2024. The standard edition will cost $69.99 in the US, with the deluxe edition, which includes in-game cosmetics and an audio gallery, costing $10 more.

  • This is notably the first game Capcom has released at the "new" AAA price tag of $70, which was raised from $60 by the majority of publishers at the start of the current console generation. Its major releases last year, the Resident Evil 4 remake and Street Fighter 6, were both sold at the older price point.

  • The price increase is unsurprising given that the publisher's COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto previously stated that he believes game prices are too low, even at $70, due to the ongoing rise in development costs since the NES era.
