Dragon’s Dogma 2 has set the tone for Capcom, which is now commenting on the price of the game, how much it sold and how this will affect the cost of the company’s future games.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 was the first Capcom game sold for €80. Obviously it was also a test for the company, which carefully analyzed the public reaction and sales of the action RPG.

In a new Q&A session, Capcom gave some information on the strategy adopted and how it wants to act moving forward.

Capcom’s strategy and reaction to Dragon’s Dogma 2

Capcom explained that “This title had a moderate reception from players and reached 2.6 million units sold as of the end of March 2024. As for the prices of future releases , we will determine them after carefully evaluating the response of users and having considered the increase in development costs.

These words suggest that we shouldn’t take it for granted that every game from now on will be sold for €80 , but Capcom certainly wants to go in that direction.

The president, last September, had already stated that from his point of view the games should cost more. “Personally, I think the prices of games are too low,” he said during the Tokyo Game Show. “Development costs are about 100 times higher than in the days of the Famicom (NES), but the price of software hasn’t increased that much.”

“There is also a need to increase wages to attract talented people. Given that wages are increasing across the industry, I think the option of increasing video game prices is a healthy form of business.”
