Fans looking forward to Capcom’s planned sci-fi adventure Pragmata will have to settle in for a long wait as it is officially delayed to a 2023 launch window. This confirmation comes from a tweet by the official Pragmata Twitter account.
The tweet included a message announcing the delay from the Pragmata development team, as well as an apologetic teaser trailer.

The Pragmata delay teaser trailer features an unnamed blonde girl. In it, she holds up an apparently hand-drawn sign that reads “
2022 -> 2023, Sorry :( ”
The new artwork also shows the girl wearing the blue coat she was wearing in the game’s 2020 announcement trailer. Behind her is a futuristic machine. Above her hangs a pillar marked with “1:1 GDLIIATNCAH myosotis,” that extends multicolored strips of material towards the floor. Interestingly, the Forget-Me-Not flower is part of the myosotis genus. What this could mean for Pragmata is unclear. The official PlayStation page for the game says that players will “travel to a dystopian near future and explore a unique lunar world.”
A delay to Pragmata may have been coming for some time. In January 2021 Eurogamer reported that the fine print of a PlayStation 5 trailer shown off at the 2021 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) indicated Pragmata having a 2023 launch window instead of the previous official figure of 2022. Now Capcom itself has confirmed that window explicitly.
Pragmata is in development and scheduled for release in 2023 for PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5.
