In an interview with PC Gamer, key members of the development team talked about the upcoming release of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen on Windows (launching January 15, 2016). During the interview, which gives a lot of information about the status of the dev team, the series and their hopes for its success on PC, the question was posed: will there be a sequel to 2012’s Dragon’s Dogma? Producer Minae Matsukawa’s answer wasn’t unexpected, given Capcom’s business strategy, but it was still encouraging given that this franchise seemed all but forgotten for a while now:
PC Gamer: Between this release and Dragon’s Dogma Online, it seems like the series still means a lot to Capcom—where is Capcom at in terms of considering a sequel?
Matsukawa: Thanks for your interest in the series! 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.
Well, that’s good news if I ever heard it. They haven’t put this one on the shelf yet but they clearly need to gauge interest to see if there are enough consumers across all platforms to justify the production of a new game in the series. Dragon’s Dogma was a great sleeper hit and it deserves a sequel in this writer’s humble opinion.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is available on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 currently, having been released in 2012, and will be coming to PC on January 15, 2016. It is published and developed by Capcom.
