Capcom has opened a mysterious countdown website that will end a week from today on February 20 at 22:00 PST (February 21 at 15:00 JST). The website only shows the remaining time with no additional information, but the URL does indicate that the countdown is for a video game.

Upcoming titles by Capcom include the action-adventure game Pragmata and the asymmetrical multiplayer game Resident Evil Re:Verse. Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, a massive expansion for Monster Hunter Rise, is set to release this summer as well. It’s possible that new information regarding these titles will drop when the timer ends.

Or maybe it’ll be an announcement for a brand new game. For example, Luke, the last character added to Street Fighter V, was presented as a character that will expand the Street Fighter universe and is seen as a stepping stone to a new entry in the series. Incidentally, the end of the countdown coincides with the final day of the CAPCOM Pro Tour 2021 Season Final.

Rumors of a Resident Evil 4 remake have been floating around as of late, too. In any case, we’ll have to wait for the countdown to end to see what will be revealed.
