Capcom says it has no Captivate event planned for 2013

Capcom's annual Captivate event, where the publisher showcases new and upcoming video games, will be taking a year off, says Capcom senior vice president Christian Svensson.

"This year we're likely to be looking at announcements around other events or not at events at all," Svensson wrote on the publisher's Ask Capcom forums. "So there isn't a Captivate planned this year."

Svensson says Capcom plans to attend major industry events like E3, PAX and San Diego Comic-Con, but offered no specifics.

At last year's Captivate event in Rome, Capcom offered a new look at Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, DmC: Devil May Cry, Lost Planet 3, Resident Evil 6, Dragon's Dogma and the PlayStation Vita version of Street Fighter X Tekken. Capcom recently previewed a handful of announced but unreleased titles, like Remember Me, Monster Hunter Ultimate 3 and DmC's Virgil's Downfall downloadable content.

Earlier this week, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono offered a glimpse at Deep Down running on the company's next-generation game engine, Panta Rhei, at Sony's PlayStation 4 event. It's possible the company has further next-generation announcements planned alongside the reveal of Microsoft's next Xbox.
