Dragon's Dogma 'sets the stage' for a series
The action RPG helps Capcom improve its first-quarter earnings.
Capcom's Dragon's Dogma has set itself up to become a series, thanks to strong sales that helped the Japanese publisher increase this year's first-quarter profits by 290 percent when compared to the same timeframe last year, according to GameSpot. The game, so far, has shipped one million copies worldwide since its launch a little more than two months ago.
The strong performance has "set the stage" for Dragon's Dogma to become a a regular series for the publisher, corroborating a GameSpot report from June that claimed the title would become a major franchise for Capcom.
It's truly good news for Capcom, as well as fans of the title, which currently has a Metacritic score in the mid-to-high 70s. Let's just hope the series can continue to sell a decent amount of copies. Because, who knows? The next one might not include a Resident Evil 6 demo, which was surely a nice bullet point for the game's early adopters.
