Capcom announced today that it has signed a development agreement with UK-based Monumental Games, meaning Montumental Games will develop a multi-platform title scheduled for release and published by Capcom later in the year. Unfortunately, actual information regarding said videogame is nonexistent, so yeah, kind of a misleading headline. Sorry about that.
Monumental games has two UK offices in Nottingham and Manchester as well as one in Pune, India. A quick check of their website offers up no additional details about their mysterious top-secret console project aside from this blurb:
We can't reveal the franchise as yet, but we can say we're both proud and excited to be working on it. As you would expect given our core technology, there's a substantial online element, but the gameplay focus is pure adrenalin. We'll let you know more soon!
On the plus side, they've developed a free-to-play MMO based in the European football world as well as an MMO hunting game. Whether the console game they're working on for Capcom is an MMO, I've no idea. But I always enjoy persistent worlds and sandbox games, so that's reassuring. More later as details are released!
