Three "Major" Unannounced Capcom Games Coming By April 2017
One is expected to sell 4 million copies.
Capcom is planning to launch three unannounced "major" games by April 2017, the Resident Evil company has announced. One of these is a Monster Hunter game, while the other two are completely mysterious. We do know, however, how many copies these are expected to sell.
As you can see in the chart below (via VideoGamer.com), Major Title 1 is pegged to sell around 4 million units, while the Monster Hunter game and Major Title 2 are expected to move around 2 million units each. This information was shared in a new slide presentation that was published today on Capcom's investor website [PDF].
The 4 million unit number for Major Title 1 suggests it may be a game from an established series rather than something completely new. Just yesterday, Capcom said it was planning a "full-scale offensive" for the Resident Evil brand this year, which could be a reference to a new entry in the series.
Capcom did not share any specific release dates for the projects. The company only said that they are all expected to arrive before Capcom's current financial year ends on March 31, 2017.
If one of these games is to be announced soon, a reveal could happen at E3 in June. Unlike publishers like Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Bethesda, Capcom does not typically have an event of its own at the show.
However, that doesn't mean there won't be any Capcom-related announcements. At E3 2014, Capcom announced new Dead Rising 3 DLC during Microsoft's briefing. A year later, new information about Street Fighter V characters and the fighting game's beta test was shared during Sony's event.
We will report back with new information about Capcom's unannounced games as it becomes available.
