The gaming community is buzzing with anticipation as Capcom has teased an “unannounced major title” set to hit the shelves before March 2024. Though Capcom has kept the details close to its chest, the announcement has set the gaming world alight with speculation and excitement.
Capcom revealed the existence of this mystery title in a Q&A session during its recent earnings briefing for the second quarter of the fiscal year ending in March 2024. The game is part of Capcom’s strategy to achieve its ambitious sales targets for the fiscal year.
Alongside the release of the Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy in January, this unannounced title is expected to significantly contribute to the sales figures for the latter half of the fiscal year.
The company’s ambition doesn’t stop there; Capcom has set a lofty goal of selling 45 million game copies on consoles by the end of this fiscal year. While it initially aimed to boost sales through various sale events in the second half of the fiscal year, the upcoming unannounced title is now a major part of this strategy.
With this new title on track for release, Capcom is optimistic about reaching its sales goal, as it expects to sell millions of copies of this game within a few months.
The title has spurred a whirlpool of speculation among gamers and industry insiders alike. A popular theory is that this major unannounced title could be a new entry in the Monster Hunter franchise.
An alleged leak on 4chan hinted at a game titled Monster Hunter Paradise, featuring a battle pass instead of expansions, and boasting over 100 monsters at launch, many of which are also present in Monster Hunter Rise, World, and Generations.
Capcom’s recent successes with titles like Resident Evil 4 and Street Fighter 6 have already contributed to a record income this year, and with this unannounced title, the company seems poised to further cement its position in the gaming industry.
