Hideaki Itsuno apologizes for absence at TGS, says new game is coming along


Dragon’s Dogma 2 anyone?

Hideaki Itsuno, the director of games likeDevil May Cry 2, 3,and4, as well as the critically-acclaimed Dragon’s Dogma,tweeted an apology to fans today for his lack of news at Tokyo Game Show. Itsuno told fans to be patient, as his new game is in development, and coming along smoothly.

“Sorry to not announce anything at TGS2017,” Itsuno said. “Please wait as my project is progressing smoothly.”

TGS is the best time to look at what lies ahead in the Japanese sphere of game development. With Itsuno absent from the lineup this year, it’s reasonable that some fans would be disappointing. Still, the promise of a new Capcom game with Itsuno at the helm is a tantalizing thought.

Sorry to not announce anything at TGS2017.Please wait as my project is progressing smoothly.

What do you think the new game will be? Personally, I’m hoping for a sequel toDragon’s Dogma or even a properDevil May Cry 5.
