Dragon's Dogma getting sequels after shipping 1M
Posted: 25.06.2012 06:45 by Comments: 6
Dragon's Dogma might have been a disaster in sales in North America and Europe, but its strong sales in Japan have earned it a sequel, according to publisher Capcom.

In Capcom's press release, Dragon's Dogma "shipped" 1M worldwide, which is technically correct. However, it sold a meager 190K units across two platforms in North America, and an even lower 120K units in Europe.

However, Capcom also revealed that the game enjoyed the biggest sales in Japan in 10 years for a new IP; the game sold 450K units in May. Thus, the game will be getting a sequel.

It's a nice thing that Dragon's Dogma is getting a second chance, since Strategy Informer awarded the game an 8.0/10 score in its review.

Typos in the number of NA and EU sales :).
I wonder if they'll be making Western releases after those sales, they probably still made money over here.

Typos?

And the only change might be a delayed Western release (localization).

I doubt it will be ported to PC with those low sales figures in the Western market, Dan. Shame, as it doesn't look half bad.
