Frame Rate Issues In Dragon’s Dogma 2

Capcom has addressed concerns about these frame rate problems, claiming that the cause is probably due to the number of NPCs in a given area. Following a query from IGN, Capcom stated that the level of content within certain areas causes the frame rate to drop, and some of those dips are reported by early players to fall around 30-40 FPS, making the performance quite inconsistent. A spokesperson for Capcom stated, “In certain situations where numerous characters appear simultaneously, the CPU usage can be very high and may affect the frame rate”. The team behind Dragon’s Dogma 2 is looking into solutions that will help improve the game’s performance in the future, but a specific time frame was unfortunately not given. With Dragon’s Dogma 2 set to have exciting gameplay, frame rate issues could hinder a player’s experience.
