Massive Capcom Leaks Reveal Dragon’s Dogma 2, Street Fighter 6, and Potentially More

The fallout from a massive data breach at Capcom continues as more games in development leak online. A purported screenshot from the leaks shows a Capcom development schedule for the next four years, and IGN believes at least portions of that list to be legitimate, including listings for Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Street Fighter 6.Earlier this week, Capcom confirmed it was the victim of a “customized ransomware attack” that led to unauthorized access to its network. Capcom says corporate, employee, and customer information may have been compromised by the attack. Subsequently, materials from those leaks have been released onto the internet — while unable to verify them all, sources close to Capcom have told IGN that many are genuine.

As more information from the leaked data packages continues to trickle out, Capcom’s alleged game development plans for the next four years appear to have made their way online. The schedule includes a mix of sequels and remakes, while others are only listed under their codenames.

Here is a list of the biggest names listed in the purported schedule:

  • Resident Evil Outbreak – Q4 FY21
  • Dragon’s Dogma 2 – Q2 FY22
  • Street Fighter 6 – Q3 FY22
  • Rockman [Mega Man in North America] Match – Q3 FY22
  • Resident Evil 4 Remake – Q4 FY22
  • Monster Hunter 6 – Q2 FY23
  • Biohazard Apocalypse – Q3 FY23
  • “SSF6” – Q4 FY23
  • Final Fight Remake – Q2 FY24
  • Power Stone Remake – Q3 FY24
  • Ultra SF6 – Q4 FY24
  • Resident Evil Hank [likely, “Hunk”] – Q4 FY24

Sources confirmed to IGN that some of the games included in the list are legitimate — including Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Street Fighter 6 — but could potentially be out of date. Many other games revealed in the leak are listed under codenames.

Capcom detected the ransomware attacks in the early morning hours of November 2, 2020. The attack “destroyed and encrypted data” on Capcom’s servers and criminal organization Ragnar Locker messaged the company demanding a money ransom for the compromised information.

Capcom says it will continue coordinating with law enforcement in Japan and the United States and is still gauging the overall damage caused by the attack. Capcom also reassured customers that its online services, website, and games are safe to access. However, former Capcom employees have expressed frustration with the company to IGN about how it has handled the fallout to their personal lives and information.

Every IGN Resident Evil Game Review Ever

Data breaches targeting major video game companies have become more frequent in recent years. A massive data breach on Nintendo dubbed the “Gigaleak,” spilled troves of internal data online. But the information revealed in the Gigaleak mostly pertained to older projects whereas the Capcom leaks are more forward-looking.
