Remember that Capcom hack from a couple of days back? The one that showed Monster Hunter Rise for the PC and new projects called Guillotine and Shield? Well the “hack” has much more to show as talks over at ResetEra have uncovered a spreadsheet floating around the net, apparently holding the schedule of various Capcom projects for the next few years. There’s no reason to believe that this is 100% accurate, but because of the recent breach, it would be feasible that something like this would get leaked out. While a bit blurry, the image in question can be seen below: Thanks to ResetEra, the projects listed are as follows: MH Stories 2 (Q1 FY21)DGS 12 (Q1 FY21)SHIELD (Q3 FY21)RESIDENT EVIL OUTRAGE (Q4 FY21)REGOLITH (Q4 FY21)”Indies 2″ (Q1 FY22)”Indies 2 port” (Q2 FY22)Dragon’s Dogma 2 (Q2 FY22)STREET FIGHTER 6 (Q3 FY22)ROCKMAN MATCH (Q3 FY22)RESIDENT EVIL 4 REMAKE (Q4 FY22)ONIMUSHA NEW…

Apparently, a ransom of 1.1 Billion Yen ($11 Million) is being asked but with Capcom deciding to decline the buyout, the hackers have released data which shows some very interesting items.
