It appears more in-person game events will suffer the same fate as E3 as more companies now opt for proprietary digital events. Capcom just launched a digital event called “Capcom Highlights”. The developer and publisher said the “digital event is here with the latest on our newest titles!”

Capcom Highlights Will Present Two Digital Events On March 7 And 11

Instead of having one half-hour event, the company has decided to split its showcase into two separate digital events. The first or Day 1 will air on Thursday 7 March 2024 at 23:00 GMT while the second or Day 2 will air on Monday 11 March 2024 at 22:00 GMT.

However, Capcom warns that the date and time of the events may change without prior notice. Therefore, it is important to keep your eyes peeled for sudden updates. Each of the events will last between 15 to 20 minutes.
