How to Delete Your Character or Save File in Dragon’s Dogma 2

There are no second chances...or are there?

Dragon’s Dogma 2 has some pretty archaic design in certain places, especially regarding its save files. The game is so hardcore that it doesn’t allow more than one save slot and omits the option to delete your save within the game. However, there is a workaround outside of the game that allows you to delete your save file and create a new one, so let’s get into it. Here’s how to delete your character save file in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

How to Delete Dragon’s Dogma 2 Save Files on PS5 and Xbox

Thankfully, it’s possible to delete your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save file on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The two consoles have different interfaces, so the steps are slightly different from one another.

    • For Xbox: Go to ‘Network Settings’ under the general ‘Settings’ tab and select the ‘Go Offline’ option.

    • For Xbox: Scroll to Dragon’s Dogma 2 on the dashboard and hit the Menu Button. Scroll down to ‘Saved Data’ and select ‘Delete All’.
  3. Start a new game and then repeat step one for the respective console, except turn Cloud Saving Sync back on.
