Ah, the good old website countdown. We’ve not seen one of these in quite some time. Capcom is teasing some sort of announcement for the end of this week with a seven-day countdown timer that began a few hours ago on its official website. The page doesn't have anything else on it that could potentially hint at what this is all about besides the black background and white text.
The countdown will end at 6am GMT / 10pm PT (10th February) / 1am ET on Monday 21st February 2022, which just so happens to coincide with the final day of Capcom's Pro Tour 2021 season final. Therefore, it's possible the countdown could be related to an announcement scheduled for the fighting event. The final day action begins six hours before the countdown in question hits zero.
Capcom will celebrate Street Fighter's 35th anniversary this year, so the official announcement of a sixth mainline entry at some point seems likely. There's no guarantee this countdown timer is related to that, though. It could just as easily be a new line of merchandise for fans to gobble up. Still, due to the timing of the event and when this countdown is scheduled to end, we think it's safe to place your bets on something Street Fighter related.
In a Street Fighter V update late last year, Capcom said: "We'll be back with more news about the future of Street Fighter."
Outside bets include the Resident Evil Village DLC announced last year and possibly even the rumoured Resident Evil 4 remake. Both, however, are unlikely to be related to this. What do you hope Capcom plans to announce? Share your predictions in the comments below.
My money is on Resident Evil 9: What have Rebecca and Barry been up to?
resi 4 remake wouls be awesome.
Capcom is proud to announce lost planet NFTs! 💵 💰 💷
If SF6 comes out this year, that's another amazing year for fighting games.
Street fighter 6 probably Capcom cup season finals this week.
Streetz Fighterz 6
Resident Evil Infidel 4 the remake
Dragons Dogma 2 babeeeeeeeh (Haven't played the first one but I'm intrigued because it's Capcom's new era)
@Slippship LOL. Countdown for less people getting games?
abandoned trailer, why capcom you ask? Well think about it. The game is a lie it's.....cap! capcom has a website so cap.com!
gets kicked off stage
Unless it's about RE somehow, I'm not likely to be interested.
@jdv95 that’s what I’m hoping for too
@Voltan damn man this year is already insane!
RE4 Remake reveal for sure.
Definitely looking forward to this! Street Fighter V was awesome so hopefully Street Fighter 6 will continue the tradition!
@Voltan I think so too, my money on SF VI
I'd love a new Commando for PS5
Hey, I would be pretty hyped if it was another street fighter.
Selling 5% to Saudi investment, nah I'm good! Won't see another Capcom purchase from me.
@Slippship I know you were hahaha.
Sony should look to buy new funded studios for fresh new IPs.
I saw that the Dead Space director's new studio is independent. Rockstar's co founder made another studio. Stuff like that is what Sony should look into. They'll add more games to the market.
I hope it dragon's dogma 2 🤞
@Nacheis It's baffling that a whole country buys stocks, like wtf?!
Just fuels the hate that the internet has for the saudi government. Which IMO is over-the-top compared to what the US does, I don't think Saudi Arabia holds a candle to the hate the US deserves.
Hi there fellow gamers.
A Capcom countdown?
I would say it could be Resident Evil related or even Pragmata, but I think it´s going to be about Street Fighter 6.
Capcom is going to have a a series of exibitions matches between some pro players on SFVCE between the days of 18 and 20 of this month.
What better time to show their new entry of one of their more famous franchise.
That´s what I think anyway. Hope they can make an awesome Street Fighter game..... Like SFAlpha 4. I guy can dream.
Cheers, stay safe good people and happy gaming to us all
@lolwhatno my beef here isn't with governments buying shares (although I'm not a great fan of that either). More with the actions of said governments with human rights violations.
Chun Lee new costumes?
And yes, before someone points out, my list of games I personally decide are ethical for me to purchase is growing ever smaller.
@Nacheis Yes, I know. Why is it a problem? They just don't want to depend on oil too much (or can't). Lots a publishers have investments from various places. Capcom is the best third party publisher imo, so I won't let that get in the way lol.
3...2...1...surprise, we've been bought by Sony!!!...(just joking).
I'd love it to be RE Revelations 3 carrying on from the end of the RE3 Remake.
@lolwhatno Dude, Saudi Arabia cut a journalist into pieces while still alive with a bone saw. At the behest of their crown prince. Yes, the USA aren’t great at all but come on, dismembering a journalist in broad daylight?
@RevGaming you didn't read that article huh?
Let me help:
The hugely-controversial Prince Mohammed bin Salman is often cited as being a fan of video games, with his preferred franchise being Call of Duty. This likely had an influence on PIF's choice to invest in Activision Blizzard.
He has also been blamed by the CIA for the assassination of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, while his rule of Saudi Arabia has kept up the country's notoriously poor human rights record, with homosexuality still criminalised with punishments ranging from floggings to the death penalty.
@Nacheis So nothing related to Capcom.
@nessisonett Yep, this is what I wanted to hear. Could you please tell me why the life of 1 journalist is more important than the life of (at the very least) the 1 million people the USA murdered? Even less compare the journalist to the people in abu ghraib prison, how do they compare?
P.s: And before any idiot comes in thinking he is clever by telling me I'm defending the Saudi government, I'm not F*ck em and F*ck the US government too. It's just that I'm always surprised that people give so much hate to the saudi.
Edit: if 1 was a second, 1 million will be 10 days. Just to put things into perspective.
Let's get back on topic now.
It’s a countdown for capcom’s review of Elden ring Ofc
Ducktales Remastered...........Remastered for PS5
Marvel vs Injustice game
@Hobbesyall Dragons Dogma 2 is Dark Souls 4 in disguise.
New Megaman Legends!
@Nacheis "And yes, before someone points out, my list of games I personally decide are ethical for me to purchase is growing ever smaller." That's a commendable move, good luck with that. I would be really interested to read the companies you blacklisted and why (probably is a lot of work though)
We are definitely also due an update on the RE DLC though right? It's been quite some time since the game released now.
2 words..... Dino Crisis
@LiamCroft Liam, apologies if it comes across as hijacking a thread but surely these conversations around the art we love are why we have comments sections? I personally wouldn't want to see Saudi/tencent investments glossed over and forgotten.
@Nacheis You're free to discuss wider topics like this in the forums. Comments sections must remain on topic to what the article covers.
Hmm, there’s a lot of games I want from Capcom but I gotta say this is either Street Fighter or Resident Evil related.
Ah, just found out there is some RE news that’s supposed to happen tomorrow. So maybe that rules out RE for this countdown. 🤔
Has to be Street Fighter 6; it's the only franchise they have that warrants a countdown announcement. The leaked roadmap shows it was set to release Q3 2022 so this lines up perfectly for a reveal. No way do I expect them to have a countdown tease for an RE release, especially not DLC for Village or RE4 remake.
3rd person action survival Dino Crisis reboot with Regina or I don't care.
It is Deep Down at last...
Hopefully Resident Evil 4 remake!
Possibly a new Street Fighter. Makes sense since it'll be at the end of a fighting event.
The countdown finishes on the day of the final, so I'm 90% certain it will be the SF6 reveal
@Gaia093 no its not Resident Evil. NintendoLife had some information about resident evil news tomorrow.
It can't be resident evil if this is happening tomorrow
@Rural-Bandit well, most likely it would be SF because of that but I could be wrong so who knows.
@Nacheis You've missed the whole Neom thing too. A leader of a group of people who have protested peacefully concerning Neom being built on land they've occupied for hundreds of years suddenly according to MBS's thugs decided to arm up and get shot.
And I'm guessing SF6 for the reveal - or the first 147 of Chun Li's outfits in SF6 you can buy?
@jdv95 Hasn't there been talk of a remake already or it that just a rumour?
@captainaverage yep there has been a rumor for it a long time.
that's why it would be awesome if they confirmed it.
I'm going with Street Fighter 6 news as this countdown coincides nicely with the Capcom Cup finale.
This is most likely yet another SF or RE which so I have nothing to be hype about.
HA! The current trend is a countdown for an announcement of an announcement... and if it's RE4 remake it's a big pass for me.
If it's SF6... i am intrigued. I guess they are worried KoF will blow them out of the water.
I'm hoping for news on Resident Evil 4 Remake, RE Village DLC, or Dragon's Dogma 2.
