Capcom has confirmed that Pragmata, its mysterious project set for release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, has been delayed from 2022 to 2023.

Rumors of the delay began to spread after a sizzle reel at Sony's CES 2021 press conference in January listed the game's release as 2023 instead of 2022, but Capcom didn't confirm the delay until Tuesday. The announcement comes alongside a new in-engine clip of the little girl character that appeared in the game's original trailer holding up a whiteboard revealing the delay.

"Our team is hard at work on the project, but to ensure this will be an unforgettable adventure we've decided to shift the release window to 2023," Capcom said in a tweet accompanying the video. "In the meantime we have a brand new artwork to share with you. Thank you for your patience."

The artwork in question shows the same little girl wearing a big blue puffer jacket, standing in a shining and sterile white environment in front of some kind of high tech-looking platform. Above her, a black tube appears to be dropping lines of color down toward the platform — or maybe they and the tube are being pulled back up? It's not clear. Also unclear is the meaning of the text written on the tube: "1:1 GDLIIATNCAH myosotis."

Myosotis is another name for the flower more commonly known as a forget-me-not, so it's possible the game will be tied somehow to memory. For now it remains a mystery.
