Capcom has officially announced that Pragmata, its mysterious project for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, has been delayed into 2023.
We’d previously seen that Pragmata had been pushed from its original 2022 release window to 2023 earlier this year, when a sizzle reel at Sony’s CES 2021 press conference noted the delay. Now Capcom has reaffirmed that delay, posting a new in-engine video clip to its social media channels featuring the little girl from the original trailer showing off a whiteboard slate with the new release window.
An update on #PRAGMATA:
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. In the meantime, we have a brand new artwork to share with you. Thank you for your patience.🌑 pic.twitter.com/3ZTOkIWEYD

“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,” reads the Tweet. “In the meantime, we have a brand new artwork to share with you. Thank you for your patience.”
The artwork also features the same girl from the trailer, standing in a clinically clean sci-fi environment. A tubular machine behind her features a logo that reads “1:1 GDLIIATNCAH myosotis”. It’s unclear what this means, but a myosotis is a type of flower often known as a forget-me-not, and so it may be that memory is a theme explored by the game.
Pragmata was originally revealed in 2020 with a stunning, if indecipherable trailer featuring an astronaut, the little girl from this new artwork, a cat, debris falling from the sky, and a technological monster. How all that fits together is so far unknown, but looks like we’ll be waiting even longer to find out exactly what Pragmata is. The mystery continues.
