It may have been the very definition of a Marmite game – one you either loved or hated, with zero middle ground – but it’s done well enough at retail to warrant a sequel. That’s right folks – Dragon’s Dogma will soon be a franchise.
Capcom’s confirmed that Dragon’s Dogma is now the 55th Capcom title to top the 1 million shipped mark. That’s shipped, not sold, but indicates that it’s something people want. Capcom’s remaining tight-lipped on actual sales figures – but it’s speculated to have moved 450K units in Japan, 190K in North America and 120K in Europe to date.
As a result of its success, Capcom plans on transforming Dragon’s Dogma in to a viable franchise, and that’s not something I’m too upset about. It might not have found favour with everybody, but I rather enjoyed Dragon’s Dogma – and I hope a sequel will at least fix the game’s glaring flaws; like the lack of any sort of fast-travel system, the regularly overused speech, the general lack of polish and the nearly missing story.
What would you like to see in a Dragon’s Dogma sequel?
