Last week Dragon’s Dogma Online was trademarked in Europe by Capcom. At almost the same time, Dragon’s Dogma official website posted under the ‘News’ section the following text (now removed):

Devil May Cry? Dragon’s Dogma 2? What could this be? What are you hoping for?

It seems quite clear that the text was teasing a Dragon’s Dogma sequel but, furthermore, DD director and DD: Dark Arisen producer spoke this week with Dengeki PlayStation about a new game to be announced very soon.

We’ve got several games in the pipeline right now. One of them is even in the last stages right now. We should be able to announce it soon.

We’re working really hard to get ready for people to learn about what we have coming up in 2015 and get them excited to play those games.

Let’s raise a question: Could this really be a Dragon’s Dogma sequel, or is Capcom planning to re-brand Deep Down as Dragon’s Dogma Online, as we pointed more than a year ago?
