It looks like there might be news of new Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village DLC at E3, but will Capcom show a new game?
Capcom has become one of the last publishers to announce their times for E3, with their conference due to take place at 10.30pm BST on Monday, June 14.
The Resident Evil publisher doesn’t traditionally have its own conference, usually preferring to turn up at Sony or Microsoft’s events to announce new games, but this year it will be part of the general E3 livestream.
What’s not clear though is if Capcom will be showing off any new games, as the only ones they’ve confirmed they will be talking about are The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, Monster Hunter Stories 2, Monster Hunter Rise, and Resident Evil Village.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Monster Hunter Stories 2 were previously announced and are both due to launch in July, so there’s presumably not much more to say about them.
Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village are both already out, so the implication is that if they’re covered in any detail it’ll be to discuss DLC – which would be expected of both titles anyway.
Whether there’ll be any brand new games is unclear but it’s certainly not something Capcom are hinting at officially, which is always a good sign you should temper your expectations.
As a result of a serious hack last year games like Dragon’s Dogma 2, a new Onimusha, and a Resident Evil 4 remake are all rumoured to be relatively imminent, although it’s unclear how old that information was and if Capcom has changed their plans since.
One game that should have been on the list though is multiplayer title Resident Evil RE:Verse, which is not mentioned. Given the poor response to the game’s reveal it’s entirely possible it may have been cancelled, although it won’t be Monday till we know for sure.
