Dragon's Dogma 2 runs at an average of 30 FPS on consoles

Capcom's upcoming sequel to the fan-favorite Dragon's Dogma will have an average uncapped frame rate of 30 FPS, with no option to switch between a quality and performance mode.

The details:

  • In an interview with the Reno Gazette Journal, game director Hideaki Itsuno confirmed that the game would have an uncapped frame rate, with a target of around or above 30 FPS on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. There will be no option for a 60 FPS mode, and Itsuno stated that hardware will have a significant impact on overall PC performance.

  • IGN’s Destin Legarie noted the frame rate in his first impressions article, writing that the game averaged around 31 FPS but would drop during the more intense, action-packed moments at 4K on the PS5. It was also spotted that the uncapped frame rate is locked, with no option to limit it to a maximum of 30 FPS.

  • Although previews show that the game looks great visually, fans appear to be disappointed with the performance, pointing out that other titles such as Horizon: Forbidden West and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth can achieve 60 FPS at lower resolutions and a solid 30 FPS at 4K.
