Capcom is gearing up to release a big game even though it hasn’t announced it yet, as the maker of Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Street Fighter has an “unannounced major title” that will launch by March 2024.
As reported by VG247, Capcom said during the question and answer section of its recent financial results presentation that this unannounced title will allow it to achieve its sales goal for the year.
“In the second half of this fiscal year, we plan to release Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy in January in addition to a currently unannounced major title,” Capcom said, translated by Reddit user hzy980512 and verified by IGN. “In addition, we plan to increase the sales figures of new titles in the first half of this fiscal year, such as Street Fighter 6, to achieve the target.”
Of course, it’s unclear exactly what this unannounced major title is, but Capcom certainly has plenty of franchises to build on. Its IP includes the aforementioned Street Fighter, Resident Evil, and Devil May Cry alongside Mega Man, Dead Rising, and Monster Hunter.
As mentioned by Capcom, Street Fighter 6 wasn’t released until June 2023, meaning a new title in this franchise is unlikely. Likewise, Resident Evil 4 Remake arrived in April 2023, and Capcom also noted that the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney trilogy would launch in January, which would likely knock those out as well.
Devil May Cry and Monster Hunter haven’t seen a full new release since 2020 and 2021 respectively, perhaps making them more likely candidates, but only time will tell what Capcom is planning.
