According to a report on Capcom’s financial results briefing for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, the Japanese developer has a Monster Hunter game and two other “Major Titles” in the works. All three games are expected to release by the end of the next fiscal year i.e March 31, 2017.

The report states:

In Consumer, we will be rolling out new titles on the global stage. In addition to “Monster Hunter Stories” and other new titles in popular franchises, we‟re planning major title releases.

At present, we cannot yet communicate our entire title lineup for operational reasons. However, in addition to new titles that we have announced, such as “Monster Hunter Stories”, “Ace Attorney 6” and “Resident Evil Umbrella Corps”, we are planning to release the titles listed on this slide.

Below is the slide in question:

2 million is kind of low for a Monster Hunter title so this game could very well be a spin-off or mobile game. Monster Hunter Explore, a free-to-play mobile game, which released last year in Japan and last month in the West has already hit 4 million downloads so Capcom could be planning to double down on the mobile market.
