Dragon’s Dogma Player Numbers Peak Following Sequel Announcement

Capcom’s RPG, Dragon’s Dogma has had its best player peak since 2016 following the announcement of its sequel.

After waiting a whole decade, Dragon’s Dogma 2 was finally announced last week during a Capcom Showcase. Sadly, we weren’t treated to any gameplay. Though we did learn that it will be developed using the RE Engine. This is the same engine that has powered the likes of the recent Resident Evil games as well as DMC5.

Amongst all the excitement, returning fans (and hopefully new fans too) have been jumping back into Capcom’s RPG on PC Steam. According to SteamDB, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen has recently peaked at 6,582 concurrent players.

Sure, this might not seem a lot, but only last week, Capcom’s RPG was below 2,000 in terms of concurrent players. Furthermore, at the time of writing, there are currently just under 3,500 gamers exploring Lestania right now.

Not to be confused with the original game of 2012, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen was a fairly low-effort remaster that came bundled with the Dark Arisen expansion. Following its launch in 2016, the game peaked at 27, 368 concurrent players.

It will be interesting to know what the player numbers are for Dragon’s Dogma on consoles. However, just by looking at my friends’ list, I’ve noticed one or two players venturing into Lestania to slay some mythical creatures.

No release date for Dragon’s Dogma 2 was announced last week, but its launch for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S is likely to be a few years away.
