While Capcom doesn’t have any official plans at the moment to make another Dragon’s Dogma game, producer Minae Matsukawa says in a new interview that a true sequel has not been ruled out. In fact, Matsukawa tells PC Gamer that the idea often comes up during internal discussions.
“Thanks for your interest in the series!” Matsukawa said. “The Dragon’s Dogma development team members often talk about the possibility of a sequel. We’d love to hear the opinions and feedback from players of the upcoming PC port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, as that will increase the chances that we can look into the possibility of continuing the series.”
Dark Arisen is an updated and expanded version of the 2012 RPG Dragon’s Dogma. It arrived for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2013, while the PC edition debuts on January 15.
If a Dragon’s Dogma sequel is to happen, it could be made by the team that made the original. Matsukawa confirms that the team is still largely intact; they also made Dragon’s Dogma Online, a free-to-play game that launched last year for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC in Japan.
As of September 30, 2015, Capcom had sold 2.3 million Dragon’s Dogma games. The franchise’s contributions to Capcom’s bottom line may be greater than that, however, as Dragon’s Dogma Online offers a number of items for purchase via its microtransaction business model.
The full PC Gamer interview covers other topics like the origin of the Dragon’s Dogma series, its influences, and the team’s thoughts about the PC gaming market.
