Pragmata, the upcoming sci-fi game from Capcom, has been delayed until 2023. 

Originally announced during E3 2020, the PS5 and Xbox Series X title was due to release sometime in 2022. As Capcom announced today, however, the studio has decided to push the game back into 2023. 

This announcement was made via the video game company’s Twitter account which featured a statement reading "our team is hard at work on the project, but to ensure this will be an unforgettable adventure, we've decided to shift the release window to 2023." 

Alongside the announcement, Capcom shared a video of the little girl from the original Pragmata reveal holding up a sign with 2022 scribbled out next to an arrow pointing towards 2023 and the word "sorry" with a sad face written on it. 

In a follow-up Tweet, the studio shared a new piece of artwork from the game which features the same young girl wearing a huge puffer coat in some kind of futuristic setting. 

This may come as a surprise to many fans who are excited for this game as just last month Capcom revealed that Pragmata development is making "steady progress" in its latest annual report. This is even more disappointing considering we haven’t actually seen anything other than the Pragmata reveal trailer since last year. 

Pragmata appears to be a futuristic, apocalyptic game that features astronauts, a little blonde girl, and a holographic cat. We’re not too sure how the game will play as the reveal trailer only contained cinematics and no gameplay, but judging from the trailer and the new artwork it looks as though players will be in for a sci-fi adventure that partially takes place on the moon.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
