Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Confirmed to Get New Content 2018 Onwards
Since the release of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 in late 2016, Dimps studio has steadily released a stream of paid and free downloadable content (DLC). The last big DLC was released earlier this year that featured fan requested characters such as Jiren, the strongest adversary of Goku to date and Goku’s new form: Mastered Ultra Instinct.
Since the release, many speculated that the producers are done with Xenoverse 2 as it seems that its sibling, Dragon Ball FighterZ is getting a number of DLCs. To answer the speculations, Xenoverse producer Masayuki Hirano uploaded a video that confirms that the title will still have future content being released.
Gematsu posted the translated script that states below:
“Hello, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 fans. Long time no see, this is Hirano, the producer of Xenoverse 2.
First off, I wanted to give you my biggest thanks for supporting Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. And today, I was hoping to make an announcement to the fans out there. Some of you may remember, but when we announced this title, we promised to support the game for a year after launch. And we have been successful enough to run the game for a year and a half now, and that’s all thanks to the support from the fans.
However, since we did say ‘a year,’ there may be some people thinking there’s no more new experiences and content coming to Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. So that’s why I wanted to take this time out to make an announcement.
It’s not the end of Xenoverse 2 yet. And we aim to optimize the online experience for all users with free updates. We will be addressing the network connection issues you may be encountering during battle, and we also plan to make adjustments and balances to the skills / attacks, as well as the rules so that battling each other online is a more streamlined experience for everyone.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 still has much more to offer, so although Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball FighterZ are very different in genre, we would like to keep expanding both worlds, so that players can continue enjoying the game for a long period of time.
So we hope that you will continue to support and enjoy the Dragon Ball game series.”
While the Mr Hirano did not give a date or confirm a set of characters, fans of Xenoverse 2 are assured that there are still DLCs to be expected within the near future. With Dragon Ball Super wrapped up and the animation studio is preparing for a new anime series that would succeed Super, Dragon Ball Heroes is confirmed to be releasing this month. Also, a Dragon Ball Super movie is to be expected late this year.
Principally, the producers of Xenoverse 2 still has a pool of characters to release as DLC, namely from Dragon Ball Super’s Tournament of Power arc with fan favorites such as Toppo, Vegeta’s ascended form, Universe 6 saiyans such as Kale, Caulifla and their fusion form: Kefla.
