Pragmata Release Date – When is it coming out?
Near the tail end of the PlayStation 5 Future of Gaming event, CAPCOM revealed a trailer for Pragmata – their sci-fi game that had been announced at E3 2020.
The planned release of Pragmata in 2022 on both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X platforms was pushed back to 2023 to ensure it provided players with an unforgettable adventure once it was finally released, but unfortunately, the game was further delayed, this time for an indefinite date, and the highly anticipated release date of June 2023 was scrapped.
CAPCOM’s development team released a personalized message for their loyal and ever-growing fanbase during a recently held Showcase event to address the release date issue. Here, take a look at what they had to say:
It is fair to assume that this time around, this delay is quite substantial and fans should not expect to see this game being released anytime before 2025 at the earliest.

The Pragmata trailer was extremely impressive and blew away the minds of all who witnessed it.
An astronaut, in a futuristic environment, begins the trailer by exploring a deserted city street.
He takes out some flare which helps him in tracking a young girl.
From the girl’s point of view, it seems that she is accompanied by a supposedly holographic feline who then guides her back to the astronaut. An awkward reunion ensues before their surroundings start warping and distorting.
A satellite suddenly plummets from what is revealed to be a massive screen instead of a sky with a planet or moon in the distance.
The astronaut and the girl are flung toward it and about to crash into it when she uses the astronaut’s equipment, producing another flare around them that generates an immense ball of springy cables that wraps them up and prevents them from crashing into the satellite.
The girl and the astronaut get sucked up into space through the hole created by the falling satellite.
The astronaut and the girl, who seems to be an android, arrive at a lunar landscape. The girl inquires in her digitized voice, “What is that?” to which the astronaut answers “Freedom…Our freedom” as they gaze upon Earth.
The trailer was quite vague as far as the storyline and plot are concerned and left many mysteries unanswered. The trailer did however create a sense of intrigue among the gaming community to know a bit more about the game.
Since there is not much info available regarding the game’s gameplay, we currently possess no knowledge of Pragmata’s gameplay mechanics. As far as the theme of the game is concerned, Capcom only went as far as to simply label it as a science-fiction, action-adventure game.
Despite this vague piece of information, the trailer provides clues about what we may encounter. Most notably, the astronaut in the game appears to have access to configurable gadgets and weapons. For instance, he utilized a device that could detect the girl and another which created a ball of springy cables against an incoming satellite.
It is fair to assume that Pragmata is not shaping up to be a run-of-the-mill action-adventure that follows familiar gaming tropes, instead, we expect this game to be substantially different from other conventional action-adventure games with its emphasis on the use of gadgets instead of guns.
Moreover, in keeping with the sci-fi nature of the game, it looks like there are going to be robots as enemies, and it will also have things like traps and other obstructions in the player’s way rather than facing full-blown enemies and engaging in hardcore action.
This change in gameplay style could make for a welcome change and give this game a unique feel as most other futuristic, sci-fi games seen so far rely on gunplay as a core mechanic.
Although the trailer didn’t give much information about the game’s storyline, gameplay mechanics, characters, and more, It still did provide players with enough evidence that whenever the game does finally release, it could be one hell of a game to play.
The sun seems to be going down for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as most of the latest AAA titles are now slowly moving away from releasing their games on the previous-gen consoles, and from numerous rumors floating around the web, it can be speculated that Pragmata too is now all set to be released for the latest-gen gaming consoles as well, i.e. PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, as well on Windows PC.
