Dragon’s Dogma 2 NPCs are making CPUs weep and tanking the frame rate, but Capcom is ‘looking into ways to improve performance in the future’

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a stellar RPG, but as you may have noticed in our performance analysis it’s not exactly the smoothest one. It’s incredibly demanding on CPUs, resulting in performance issues that you won’t be able to escape regardless of how beefy your rig is. Capcom is aware of this, it says, but it seems unlikely they’ll be resolved by launch. 

Speaking with IGN, a Capcom representative explained that “a large amount of CPU usage is allocated to each character and dynamically calculates the impact of their physical presence in various environments. In certain situations where numerous characters appear simultaneously, the CPU usage can be very high and may affect the frame rate”.
