[CS 2023] Don’t Let Pragmata Go The Way Of Deep Down! [VIDEO]

Capcom’s PlayStation 4 exclusive was never released. Let’s hope Pragmata, unveiled as a multiplatform title, doesn’t end up unfinished…


Announced as early as 2020 by Capcom (and no, we’re not just going to capitalize the name of the game), Pragmata will be a new original sci-fi IP for the current-gen platforms. Three years ago, it was rare for a multiplatform announcement to skip PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Several years have passed, and we’re starting to get a vaporware feeling. Deep Down was also announced with great ambition by the Japanese publisher, but Capcom’s Souls clone came to nothing, and now we’re hoping in vain for its release.

Pragmata made another appearance at the Capcom Showcase. The good news is that it is still in development. That alone should be good, as Capcom doesn’t want to discuss it. In the video, the space marine/astronaut protagonist goes through several sci-fi environments and then uses melee weapons to defeat several cyborg opponents. The little girl, Diana, is clinging to our hero. (Death Stranding?) The end of the video hints that she might have some ability.

The bad news? The game comes at an unknown date. So far, 2023 has been set as the launch window. Let’s see Capcom’s explanation: “To all our expectant fans, it is with a heavy heart that we must further postpone the release of Pragmata. Our team is working hard, making the best game possible, but we need more time. We will do our best to ensure the final product is worthy of your patience. Thank you for your continued support.”

So that’s where Pragmata stands at the moment. With Resident Evil 4 Remake and Street Fighter 6 sure to bring money into Capcom’s coffers, and perhaps Exoprimal could show similar success in terms of sales, the Japanese company need not fear being financially floored by Pragmata’s protracted development. Hopefully, the game will be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC in 2024.
