Capcom has been going from strength to strength across the PlayStation 4 generation, boasting record sales with Monster Hunter: World and revitalising the Resident Evil franchise with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and Resident Evil 2. It's a feel-good story, and it doesn't look like the Japanese publisher has any plans to stop the streak. Revealed in its new financial results, Capcom aims to release a number of "major" games before 31st March 2021.
In total, the company plans to release 13 SKUs. This doesn't mean that it will release 13 games in total, but rather 13 different versions of its upcoming titles. For example, Resident Evil 3 was three SKUs -- the PS4, Xbox One, and PC version. Resident Evil 8 is widely rumoured to be Capcom's next big game in the pipeline, and due to the assumption that it'll be a cross-gen title, this will most likely cover five of those SKUs (PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC).
That leaves us with five other SKUs to work with, which could mean that Capcom has another big cross-gen game lined up for the near future. What could it be? Well, the Japanese publisher classes its "major" games as something that's at least as big as Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. It's recent Nintendo Switch ports of the Devil May Cry franchise do not count. The speculated Resident Evil 4 Remake is also not coming this fiscal year, so that's another game you can rule out for now.
Could this make way for a new Street Fighter game? A Dead Rising reboot? A Power Stone revival? Share your predictions in the comments below.
I imagine it's going to have Resident Evil 8 early next year and something else for PS5 launch. Could be anything but the speculation should be exciting!
Power Stone/Dino Crisis remakes please and thanks!
The source article article suggests that Resident Evil 3 counts for 3 of those 13 SKUs. So if the rumoured Resident Evil 8 covers 5 SKUs, then that only leaves 5 SKUs left.
Please I want a Dino Crisis remake in the RE2 engine ! The RE remakes are awesome but I want Capcom to bring back some of their other great games.
@crimsontadpoles Good spot!
Giz a new Dragon's Dogma der, Capy lad.
Dragon dogma 2💖😍💚💛.word up son
Please let there be some form of Marvel Vs Capcom be one of them
I’d love a Dead Rising reboot. But the last two were just so meh compared to DR2, so I don’t hold on to any sort of hope.
@PSfanboy1992 I’d love to see a Dino crisis remake
Deep Down for PS5!!!
It would be cool if they announced RE1 ReRemake in the new engine as a cross-gen launch title, then RE8 as next-gen only and afterwards RE4 Remake. One can only hope...
I think RE8 being a cross-gen title is a high possibility.
As for me, I'd like a new Phoenix Wright game for the Switch or remasters of the next three games in the franchise bundled together.
LOL! pushsquare wants to know everything about our comments. SMH.
@Futureshark the ultimate long con by Capcom if Deep Down is a ps5 q1 title.
My dream release is an Ace Attorney: The Lost Cases collection that bundles Ace Attorney Investigations 2 and the two Great Ace Attorney games together into one package. But that's never gonna happen.
Dead Rising, Street Fighter, and Power Stone. I’ll take all of those.
Dragon's Dogma, Deep down , new RE game ,Lost Planet Reboot
Please be a Dino Crisis Remake lol not gonna hold my breath though
Sales-wise, doesn't the pecking order go: Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2? I'm expecting announcements in that order, aside from Resident Evil 8 (which was already in development since before any of those games released).
Hopefully Street Fighter VI and RE 8. Even if crossgen it'd be great to get both within the first year of PS5.
I hope to see Dead Rising 3 come to PlayStation 4 or 5 as its the only one they havent got
@RenanKJ that would be amazing if they did
whats the point. capcom said publically, several times in fact, they will concetrate ONLY on existing franchises with remakes and sequels. so in my mind, whats the point bothering with capcom anymore since im sick of all those games they keep making sequals and remakes of! I want creative NEW ORIGINAL GAMES goddamn it! Im also the 1% of people who never enjoyed RE. So if they continue making them, im blacklisting the company. I LOVED Capcom in the 90s and early 00s with the creativity they pushed forward on PS2 sigh most of the kids here have no idea, sadly
I hope for deep down and dragon's dogma 2 for ps5
Whatever they release it will likely be excellent as Capcom are one of the few remaining AAA companies that don’t treat their player base like morons and actually provide good games and free dlc with very little in the way of micro transactions and other garbage.
@Skoda ok..... so you don’t like their games. Blacklist? Seriously? Grow up.
I really want Capcom do new re2 engine graphics of remake Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City
With 4 co-op OFF Line modes plus main Campaign operation missions and create a U.S.S characters for multiplayer to be more playing with friends and create our own Survivor kidnapped by Umbrella just like Resident Evil project Resistance but it turn in to Outbreak survivor mode to put created players that go play solo and 2 and 3 and 4 Co-op create outfits and customized Stars U.B.C.S and U.S.S and other mercenaries attire gears and street clothes and unlock past classic area's and building to fight a zombie apocalypse and umbrella special forces strong bosses .
And I liked the item box in project Resistance perfect job capcom and give 4 multiplayer OFF Line co-op infinite ammo for all guns this is what I would play and pay to see on ps4 and Xbox one consoles before it ends please Capcom make it happen.
