Xbox Exec Kills Any Hope Of Dragon's Dogma Getting An FPS Boost

The reveal of Dragon's Dogma 2 last week has conjured up a few requests for the first game, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, to get an FPS Boost on Xbox Series X and Series S, but unfortunately that won't be happening.

In a reply to one fan, Xbox Director of Project Management Jason Ronald explained that the team actually tried to apply an FPS Boost to Dragon's Dogma once upon a time, but "unfortunate side effects" prevented it from working:

"The team investigated Dragon's Dogma when we were working on FPS Boost. There were some unfortunate side effects which meant it couldn't qualify for the program."

Xbox's FPS Boost program was wrapped up in late 2021 with the arrival of a huge batch of games on November 15th, with Ronald explaining at the time that there were no more immediate plans to do anything with FPS Boost.

That said, we've seen Ubisoft apply their own style of FPS Boost to Assassin's Creed Origins, so while Xbox's program might not be active anymore, perhaps Capcom will do something for Dragon's Dogma eventually? Let's hope so.

If you're interested in checking out Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen regardless of all this, it's currently down to just £2.99 / $4.49 as part of the Xbox Deals Unlocked 2022 sale, so grab it while you can. That's a bargain for sure!
