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 have been waiting for a price drop to pick it up, or a special edtion that would have the on disc DLC unlocked, I mean,,, this is a Capcom game. You can't trust them out of the gate anymore.
Turned into a franchise and a sequel!? Awesome news.
Hopefully the sequel improves upon the core mechanics in a way that draws more people in. This series has a ton of potential.
I LOVED this game. I really did. I play everything RPG that I can get my hands on and this is one of my all time favorites, all the way back to my first in 1986. I was so sad when I had discovered the entire map. I put this game barely above, but still above, Skyrim on my favorites list. It is FUN. The variety of play styles, the combat and monsters, climbing and exploring, I can't say enough great things about this game.
I just beat this game yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it for the most part, the only thing that dispelled it for me was how much content there was. It grew daunting at around hour 65 and no end in sight; I finally just went and beat the game around hour 103, with plenty of post game content to spare. I'm glad to hear the game did well enough to deserve a sequel, I just wish I wasn't the only person I knew that played it.
Man, I still need to get around to playing this. It always seemed fun and I love RPGs, but unfortunately I have too many other games I've put off to be able to play this.
Next game on my to-get list...
I played an obscene amount of DD and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm really hoping they release an expansion, and that the sequel is multiplayer.
I'm still not sold until the Super Dragon's Dogma version is released
I wasn't a big fan of dragon's dogma hopefully the sequel fixes the issues i had like the combat and story.
I would have thought it would have done better
Was a very good game, only thing I want in a sequel is 4 player online capability.
I got it and did enjoy it. While I didn't get far into the game, and the story is one I can truly just throw away, the combat in it is great and it is just a fun game to mess around in.
