I don't know what Capcom's Pragmata is and I'm okay with that

Death Stranding vibes?

Perhaps the most enigmatic announcement in Sony's PlayStation 5 stream was Pragmata, Capcom's new... video game? I will be honest: I do not know what it is. Capcom are not saying what it is either. I can tell you it visits a city on the Moon (or a hologram of a city?), where something weird is going on. See for yourself in the trailer below.

All Capcom have to say is: "Set in a dystopian near-future on Earth's Moon, Pragmata will take you on an unforgettable, adventure, powered by the next generation of gaming hardware."

This does remind me of first seeing Death Stranding and thinking "That's neat, but what is it?" If Pragmata also turns out to be about walking across pretty landscapes, frankly I'll be thrilled. Hideo Kojima would be dead proud of that lensflare at the end of the trailer too.

Capcom plan to launch Pragmata in 2022, and say they'll tell us more about it in 2021. It'll be on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. They also announced Resident Evil Village tonight.
