Pragmata: Capcom’s New, Next-Gen IP [VIDEO]

Pragmata‘s announcement trailer feels a bit like Death Stranding.

Previously, we heard this name already – Capcom was caught when they registered Pragmata. Already then, we were suspecting this game to be a next-gen title, and lo and behold: Pragmata was announced for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC. As Guerrilla Games did with Horizon Forbidden West, Capcom didn’t go into much detail with this game’s announcement.

„Set in a dystopian near-future on Earth’s Moon, Pragmata will take you on an unforgettable, adventure, powered by the next generation of gaming hardware. Our development team is hard at work on this brand new game title, making full use of new next-gen tech, such as ray tracing, to create a breathtaking and immersive sci-fi setting like never before,” their overview says. That’s it. They’ll reveal more next year.

We have a bulky character that walks around this post-apocalyptic Times Square in New York City before finding a little girl with a cat hologram (sounds weird, but makes sense). So far, it sounds interesting, but how about this Hideo Kojima-like twist: suddenly, everything breaks (is the sky a hologram?) thanks to a satellite. Our hero grabs the girl, shoots web from his pistol that sounds just like the one we have in Resident Evil 2 Remake and Resident Evil 3 Remake. The character floats in the sky, the game’s logo is shown, then we see them with the girl on the Moon. That’s it. Absurd.

Pragmata likely uses the RE Engine, first seen in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It’s in development for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and it will launch in 2022. Sci-fi might be the new zombie: even Bethesda goes that way with Starfield.

Just one question: will it end up like the long-announced and then cancelled PlayStation 4-exclusive Deep Down?
