Following the reveal of Dragon’s Dogma 2, the popularity of the original game skyrocketed on Steam, with over 6,550 concurrent players, the highest number in the game’s six-year history. This weekend, according to Twitter user Benji-Sales, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen witnessed a large number of gamers on PC.
This figure is comparable to previous releases like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which had 6,599 active gamers on Steam across the same period of 24 hours. Player counts for Dragon’s Dogma have increased as a result of a significant discount and the unveiling of a sequel. The Dark Arisen version of Dragon’s Dogma includes extra material as well as various gameplay changes.

After reaching a high of over 27,000 players on release day, Dragon’s Dogma’s peak active player count has plummeted to an estimate of 1500-2000 players every day.

With the game’s popularity at an all-time high since February 2016, a week after its release, gamers have been flocking to Steam to submit very favorable ratings, with over 650 lately added to the site.
In a live celebration of the company’s 10th anniversary, Capcom has announced that Dragon’s Dogma II has been in development. RE Engine, the graphics engine employed in Resident Evil Village and Devil May Cry 5, would be utilized in production, as per director Hideaki Itsuno.
