The lights are on
Capcom said Dragon's Dogma still managed to ship over 1 million copies despite not having huge success outside of Japan.
In the company's latest quarterly earnings report, it said, "In this business segment, Dragon’s Dogma, the first large-scale open world game for Capcom, struggled abroad, but its popularity in the more profitable domestic market exceeded expectations..." During its launch month in May, Dragon's Dogma only sold 92,000 units. A sequel seems likely at this point as Capcom said Dragon's Dogma is being turned into a franchise.
Additionally, Capcom said it shipped an additional 450,000 units of Resident Evil: Raccoon City for the quarter to retailers, bringing the total worldwide number to 2.1 million copies.
I haven't bought it yet, but probably will eventually.
Amazing game! Can't wait to see how Capcom does with the sequel now that its an ongoing IP.
If they keep this game as it is, but just fix all of it's issues in the next installment, this could go toe-to-toe with anything Western games can put out.
I just received this from Gamefly and played for a bit. I have enjoyed what I have played so far. Certainly appreciate Capcom branching out to new IPs. This is loads better than the dreadful Raccoon City.
I bought the game thanks to GI and really liked it, a more polished,bigger sequel would be great!!!
