In an interview with Playstation Japan after Playstation Awards 2016 Square Enix Director Kazuya Niinou and Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto commented on the next game while some believe could be Dragon Quest Builders II. You can view the excerpt down below..
Producer Noriyoshi Fujimoto: “We really heard a lot from the fans, such as good points, things they want improved, and we really heard a lot of ‘we want you to make a sequel!’ As part of the Dragon Quest series, I want to live up to the fans’ expectations, but what kind of thoughts do you have about that, Niinou-san? (Laughs.)”
Director Kazuya Niinou: “…There are a lot of things I can’t say unless Fujimoto-san says it, but since we received this selection, I think we have to return the favor with a good game, and I want to work hard to for the time being to live up to your expectations.”
