"This year we're likely to be looking at announcements around other events or not at events at all. So there isn't a Captivate planned this year," said Capcom staffer Sven on the Capcom Unity forums.

Capcom will, however, be attending E3, Comic-Con, and PAX.

Capcom is currently working on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U versions of the well-liked 3DS adventure Resident Evil: Revelations, and Capcom veteran Yoshinoro Ono unveiled the studio's newest game, Deep Down, as part of Sony's PlayStation 4 announcement last week.

The publisher is also working on Ace Attorney 5 and Monster Hunter 4 and will be releasing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the 3DS and Wii U in North America and Europe in March.

Last year Captivate was held in Rome; in 2011 it took place in Miami.
