How to Delete Your Save in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To delete your save in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you need to follow different steps depending on which platform you’re using. On consoles, the first thing you need to do is make sure you’ve exited the game fully. Once you’ve done that, highlight the game in your library and hit the Options button. Select Manage Game Files / Manage Game & Add-ons, then pick Saved data. Select the files you want to get rid of (which will probably be all of them), and hit Delete. Confirm when prompted and begin Dragon’s Dogma 2 afresh. Remember that you can back your save up on PlayStation if you have a PS Plus subscription. I assume Xbox also has something along the same lines, but either way, you have to pay.

In order to delete your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save on Steam, you have to go through more complicated steps. Nothing too bad, so don’t worry. The easiest thing you can do is head to this file path: steam\userdata\(your Steam ID)\2054970\remote\win64_save. By default, that will be on your C drive Delete everything in that folder (you can make a backup somewhere else). Now, hop onto Steam and turn Cloud Saves off. Why? Because having a DD2 save in the cloud can prevent you from starting a new game, no matter the fact you deleted it locally. Only when all of that is done should you start Dragon’s Dogma 2 again. There’s another way to deal with the save on Steam, and we cover it in more detail here.
