Capcom is gearing up to release a major game, although it hasn’t been announced yet, as the maker of Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Street Fighter will release an “unannounced mainline title” by March 2024.
As VG247 reports, Capcom said in the Q&A section of its recent financial results presentation that this unannounced title will allow it to reach its revenue target 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 mainline title,” Capcom said, translated by Reddit user hzy980512 and verified by IGN. “In addition, we plan to increase sales of new titles such as Street Fighter 6 in the first half of this fiscal year to achieve the target.”
It’s currently unclear what this unannounced mainline title is, of course, but Capcom certainly has plenty of franchises to choose from. Its IPs include the aforementioned Street Fighter, Resident Evil and Devil May Cry, as well as titles such as Mega Man, Dead Rising and Monster Hunter.
However, as mentioned by Capcom, Street Fighter 6 was only released in June 2023, so a new title in this franchise is unlikely. Similarly, Resident Evil 4 Remake released in April 2023, and Capcom also pointed out that Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy is coming in January, which will likely eclipse that as well.
However, Devil May Cry and Monster Hunter haven’t seen a full re-release since 2020 and 2021 respectively, perhaps making them more likely candidates, but only time will tell what Capcom plans.
