Dragon’s Dogma 2 Takes Inspiration from GTA 5 to Create a Dynamic, Living Fantasy World
Capcom's Sequel Aims to Bring NPCs to Life and Expand Game World Fourfold
While Capcom’s highly anticipated sequel to Dragon’s Dogma immerses players in a fantastical realm, Hideaki Itsuno, the game’s director, has disclosed that Rockstar Games’ iconic title, Grand Theft Auto 5, has influenced the approach to crafting a vibrant and dynamic in-game world.
In a recent interview with VGC, Itsuno shared insights into the development of Dragon’s Dogma 2, emphasizing the ambition to realize elements that were beyond reach when the original Dragon’s Dogma was launched. However, he also pointed to Rockstar’s perennially popular 2013 release as a source of external inspiration.
