Dragon’s Dogma was one of the surprise games of the last few years, as it raked up some impressive sales despite it not being a “big name title”. In an interview with PC Gamer, producer Minae Matsukawa stated that a sequel could indeed come, depending on the sales of the upcoming port of the original Dragon’s Dogma.
“The Dragon’s Dogma development team members often talk about the possibility of a sequel,” said Matsukawa. She added that a continuation really depends on fan feedback for 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.”
They also discussed how the series itself was created, as it all started from a single idea:
“It all started with an idea by the Hideaki Itsuno, the director of the original Dragon’s Dogma. He wanted to create a game with an online system that you could use asynchronously, like an internet forum rather than a live chat. His initial ‘pawn’ system concept was the starting point, and from there the open world of Dragon’s Dogma was fleshed out, and its fluid and flexible combat system.”
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen arrives on PC January 15th.
