We haven’t heard anything about Capcom’s mysterious sci-fi game Pragmata since the first announcement in 2020, except for the news of the delay until 2023. You’ll be forgiven if you think it went the way of Deep inside, but Capcom has reassured investors in its latest financial report that: Pragmata‘s development is making “steady progress.”
Capcom wrote that it has hired young, new employees to give them the opportunity to gain development knowledge and skills by working on major franchises and new IPs. Pragmata is one such project that the publisher has assigned to new talent.
The report reads:
Based on our mid-term goals, as the head of development, I strive to fulfill my revenue responsibilities by allocating 80% of the development investment budget to the steady development of popular IP series such as Resident Evil and Monster Hunter for different platforms. At the same time, we are also working to create new IPs using the talent pool that we have expanded through our proactive recruiting efforts. We recently announced the action-adventure title PRAGMATA for the next generation of consoles, and we are making steady progress with its development.
Newly hired young workers have the opportunity to gain know-how and skills through hands-on experience in the field as they are deployed to develop popular IPs and major titles. PRAGMATA is such a company for our young employees. I feel that incorporating the youthful sensibilities of digital natives adds a new appeal to IP.
Pragmata is in development for the current generation of consoles and PC.
