Capcom has announced that they have signed a deal with Monumental Games to develop a multiplatform massively multiplayer online game to be published by Capcom.

Looking at their website, they have a secret console project listed in their projects. The description given is scarce.

We can’t reveal the franchise as yet, but we can say we’re both proud and excited to be working on it. As you would expect given our core technology, there’s a substantial online element, but the gameplay focus is pure adrenalin.

What can it be? We can only wait.
