Like every year, June 2022 will be brimming with new game announcements, release date announcements of previously announced titles, and an overall look at the future of games.
Summer Game Fest and Xbox Games Showcase have already been announced, and now it seems the Japanese publisher Capcom is also looking to be a part of the Summer festivities.
The Resident Evil and Street Fighter publisher is all set to hold its own event this June if a recent leak is any indication. The leak also revealed a list of upcoming Capcom games that could appear during this upcoming showcase. Here's when this alleged Capcom summer games showcase would take place alongside the list of games that would appear.
Capcom summer 2022 showcase leaked
The aforementioned info comes from notable games journalist and industry insider Roberto Serrano, who took to Twitter to reveal Capcom's plan for this summer. According to Serrano, Capcom's event would take place on 13th June 2022 at 2.30 PM PT / 5.30 PM ET / 11.30 PM CEST.
Capcom held its E3 2021 showcase on 14th June at the same time last year, so it could do something similar this year. It's also safe to assume that Capcom would have more games to showcase this year (given the numerous leaks) and give an update on the existing ones when compared to last year.
Below are the list of games Capcom is reportedly planning to showcase at its summer event.
- Resident Evil Village DLC
- Street Fighter 6
- Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak
- Dragon's Dogma (sequel?)
During its E3 2021 showcase, Capcom announced a story DLC for Resident Evil Village. Since then, the company has remained awfully quiet on the subject, and we could get an update on it this summer.
Resident Evil Village's multiplayer counterpart - RE: Verse - which was initially planned to release alongside the game's single-player campaign - was delayed until 2022. While no release window was provided, an update alongside a new release date should be around the corner.
Capcom announced the sixth mainline entry in its long-running fighting series, Street Fighter, earlier this year. We do not know if Street Fighter 6 is releasing this year or not, but gameplay deep down for the same shouldn't be far ahead.
Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak launches for Nintendo Switch and PC on 30th June 2022. As such, fans can expect new trailers and previews, especially at an alleged Capcom showcase, before this new Monster Hunter Rise DLC drops.
Capcom recently celebrated Dragon's Dogma's 10th anniversary by launching a new website. There have been rumours about a potential Dragon's Dogma 2 being helmed by none other than Devil May Cry creator Hideaki Itsuno. If Dragon's Dogma 2 is really in development, fans could expect this to be Capcom's biggest reveal at this year's showcase.
During PlayStation's March State of Play Event, Capcom announced Exoprimal, an upcoming multiplayer game in which a group of exofighters battle an army of Dinosaurs.
Given how it's Capcom's first new standalone multiplayer title in a while, fans could expect extensive marketing over the coming months, starting with the upcoming Capcom event.
Pragmata is Capcom's yet another brand new IP which continues to be shrouded in mystery. Its initial reveal drew many parallels to Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding, and fans have been curious to know more about this project.
Pragmata is releasing in 2023 and it's time Capcom pull off the curtain and gives fans a proper look at what this game is all about.

- Gotham Knights cancel release for last gen Xbox One and PS4

That's all the games rumoured to appear on Capcom's upcoming summer games showcase. Capcom has yet to confirm any of this, so fans should take this with a massive grain of salt.
It is also possible for Capcom to be a part of the Summer Games Showcase instead, and even if that ends up being the case, fans could still expect the aforementioned games to have some sort presence.
