People are talking about Capcom right now because of this cryptic message. In 6 days and 24 hours as of the posting of this commentary, they will make an announcement. Fans online had been making speculations on what Capcom Countdown is.
Some fans believe that this is an announcement for Street Fighter VI. The introduction of Luke who is supposed to be the protagonist of the legendary fighting game’s 5th instalment is seen as a clue. Street Fighter 6 is currently trending on Twitter because fans hypothesize about it the most.
There are also speculations that it could be Resident Evil 4 remake because of the controversial leaks about it. They might as well announce it after leaks about it had been viral already. Rumors about a Resident Evil Revelations 3 are also possible. Resident Evil 9 and DLC for Resident Evil village are possibilities too because fans were also yearning for it. Resident Evil Village won lots of awards and the infamy of Lady Dimitrescu makes DLC inevitable.
Maybe Capcom Countdown will surprise us and make revivals for Dormant series like Darkstalkers or Dino Crisis.Capcom has a deep library of titles. Those games are currently in limbo that fans wanted to see a revival. One in a decade Capcom had brought back to life some of their forgotten titles like Ghost N Goblins, Bionic Commando, and Strider.
Another Ace Attorney game won’t be bad too because it has a loyal following wanted a new game.
It could also be an announcement for a new IP. Acquisition by companies like EA, Microsoft, or Disney would be the worst-case scenario. Crossovers are also one of the genres this company is known for. Are we going to have another crossover with Marvel, SNK, or another company? Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite may be seen as a failure but it’s slowly getting a resurgence.
