Capcom, the publisher of Resident Evil and Monster Hunter, has released a new teaser page on its website, hinting at an upcoming announcement.
While it doesn’t offer information about the potential announcement, the teaser page does include a countdown timer.
This countdown is scheduled to end Feb 20 at 9pm PST / Feb 21 at 5am GMT / 12pm EST. Let’s find out what Capcom has in store for us then.
You can watch the timer in all its glory on Capcom’s countdown page.
Analysis: what could be announced?
The enigmatic countdown doesn’t reveal much about what we can expect Capcom to reveal next week. But given its slate of upcoming releases, we can make several bets on what the publisher will show.
More content for Resident Evil Village is at the top of the list. The survival horror game released last year is expected to receive a batch of free DLC sometime in 2022. We haven’t heard any details on that front since Capcom inadvertently revealed the news in an annual reportthen it might be time for the editor to spill the beans.
Street Fighter 6 may also appear. The Street Fighter 5 International Pro Tour 2021 tournament is scheduled to end next weekend, just before the countdown comes to an end. This could be a fitting time for Capcom to reveal its sequel and the sixth main entry in the series.
Rise of the Monster Hunter‘s Sunbreak expansion, the game’s biggest expansion coming Nintendo Switch and PC later this summer can also check it out. Few details about the expansion have been revealed so far, aside from Capcom promising that it will be a major release that rivals the size and quality of the Iceborne expansion for World of Monster Hunters.
If Capcom really wanted to surprise us, they could give us another look at Pragmata, the sci-fi action-adventure game from the minds of several developers who worked on the Resident Evil and Devil May Cry series. An original IP, Pragmata was first revealed in 2020 alongside a rather intriguing trailer and announced for release this year. Capcom since delayed the game for next year, but didn’t give us any further details on what, exactly, the game was supposed to be.
