Rumor: Capcom Will Announce New Game at Xbox E3 2019 Press Conference

rumor: capcom will announce new game at e3 2019

Capcom is on a roll lately. The publisher has released a string of critically-acclaimed, best-selling games, and it has fans excited to see what's next from the Japanese publisher. Capcom has also made a name for itself at the past few E3 events, using the show to generate significant buzz for games like Monster Hunter World and Resident Evil 7, and so the company is expected to announce another crowd-pleasing game at E3 2019.

We know for sure that Capcom will be at E3 2019 to show off the Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter World at the very least. However, it's likely Capcom will use E3 to announce new games as well, with one recent rumor claiming that it will announce its next game during Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference.

This rumor comes from a NeoGAF post that claims to leak Microsoft's entire E3 2019 press conference. The information in the "leak" has not been corroborated and so fans should be sure to take the information with a grain of salt. That being said, the leaker claims there is a "high chance" that Capcom will announce its next game during Microsoft's E3 2019 press conference.

This would make sense, as Capcom typically does not have its own E3 press conference, instead opting to use the "big three" press conferences by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo to showcase its upcoming games. E3 2018 saw Capcom reveal Devil May Cry 5 during Microsoft's press conference and the Resident Evil 2 remake during Sony's, so it stands to reason with Sony skipping E3 this year that the company is practically guaranteed to make an appearance at the Xbox keynote.

Now the question remains what game Capcom will announce at E3 2019. We know that Resident Evil 8 is in development in some capacity, though rumors peg it for a next-gen release. The most likely contender seems to be the Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake, which has been rumored for a January 2020 release. More long shot guesses include a new Dead Rising game or even a Dino Crisis reboot, as Capcom has expressed interest in the franchise recently.

While fans should consider the source of this information and keep their expectations in check, Capcom has established a pattern of announcing new big games at E3, so there's no reason to think that it won't do the same at E3 2019 in June.
