Having shipped over one million copies of Dragon’s Dogma, Capcom announced that they will be making Dragon’s Dogma into a major franchise.
Capcom recently spoke about it in a press release and said that they want Dragon’s Dogma to become “another pillar of earnings” much like Monster Hunter is to them.
“Dragon’s Dogma set a new record in Japan for sales volume of an entirely new brand in its first week for releases during the past decade. Worldwide shipments have surpassed one million,” reads the press release.
“As a result, Dragon’s Dogma has become Capcom’s 55th title to top the one million level, demonstrating once again that Capcom ranks among the world’s leading game producers in terms of technical and development skills.”
Dragon’s Dogma was released in May for PS3 and 360. Capcom also hinted in the press release about future DLC.
For any big fans of Dragon’s Dogma this is some really great news, since the game which was slammed by critics is now being praised by a number of gamers and will of course get a sequel which can only expand upon what I personally found to be a game with an impressive combat system and an interesting universe.
