Capcom Leak

Oh boy, this is a big one. Following on from the recent ransomware attack that targeted Capcom, it seems as though the publisher's entire project schedule for the next four years has leaked online. A screenshot of the document — which is in Japanese and is believably detailed — spills the beans on a bunch of unannounced games.

According to the leak, Capcom has plans for...

  • Resident Evil Outrage - Q4 2021
  • Dragon's Dogma 2 - Q2 2022
  • Street Fighter 6 - Q3 2022
  • Rockman (Mega Man in English) Match - Q3 2022
  • Residen Evil 4 Remake - Q4 2022
  • Onimusha New Work - Q4 2022
  • Monster Hunter 6 - Q2 2023
  • Biohazard Apocalypse - Q3 2023
  • Super Street Fighter 6 - Q4 2023
  • Final Fight Remake - Q2 2024
  • Power Stone Remake - Q3 2024
  • Ultra Street Fighter 6 - Q4 2024
  • Resident Evil Hank - Q4 2024

While this thing does start to read a bit like fan fiction — a Power Stone remake? Wow! — we need to remember that video game companies as big as Capcom are always planning ahead, often years and years in advance. What's more, the document itself does look fairly legit.

If it is real, then Capcom's got one hell of a generation lined up. It's just a shame that this supposed leak follows on what has been a terrible time for the company and its employees. The aforementioned ransomware attack compromised a lot of personal data, and is obviously being treated as a criminal act by the authorities.
