Capcom today announced that its latest IP, action RPG Dragon’s Dogma, has shipped over one million copies to retailers. It’s the 55th title for the giant Japanese publisher to hit this prestigious milestone, having breached sales charts across the globe whilst accruing favourable review scores.
The number of units shipped does not necessarily translate into how many have been sold to the consumer, though it’s a good show of demand for Dragon’s Dogma. When it launched in late May the game took Japan by storm, trumping first-week sales of any new IP launched within the past decade.
Needless to say, it’s great news for Capcom, the company announcing plans to expand Dragon’s Dogma into the publisher’s next major franchise. This will most likely entail a slew of straight-up sequels; however, knowing Capcom, mobile and/or handheld spin-offs aren’t completely out of the question either.
