Capcom ran a new survey at the end of the year asking gamers which of its upcoming titles they’re most looking forward to, but Xbox fans may notice that Microsoft’s platform doesn’t get as much love as the others…
Capcom sure loves its surveys, the latest of which is about awareness and excitement for the publisher’s upcoming games for 2023 and beyond. But even though Monster Hunter Rise was one of the first confirmed Games coming to Game Pass In 2023, Xbox gamers will find themselves facing a strange omission when asked how they prefer to buy games.
The Xbox Store was not mentioned in Capcom’s year-end survey
the year-end survey It’s not quite as open to player feedback as previous ones, so when you ask the question “How do you prefer to buy games?” You’ll see multiple options for various other platforms and storefronts, but no Xbox mentioned – just an “Other” field, and without its own text field to even say Xbox. Considering that Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is the only confirmed platformer game on Capcom’s slate that hasn’t been discontinued for an Xbox version, this feels like an odd oversight, as does the lack of any of the typical open-ended fields. Which teases the publisher for more Xbox love (we’d also like the Legacy Collection, please and thank you).
However, it’s not all bad news – both Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Pragmata have been name-dropped along with Capcom titles confirmed for 2023 to help keep the dream alive, and while both are clearly a long way off, it’s good At least see them mentioned. Completing the survey will also yield a very funky Capcom wallpaper for your computer or phone.
Which Capcom games are you most looking forward to in 2023 and beyond? Hoping to see better Xbox support from the publisher than this survey suggests? Let us know!
