Capcom reduces the scope of the next Dead Rising

08 February 2018

While Dead Rising 4 may have served as a big comeback for photographer (and costume master) Frank West, it didn't provide many happy returns when it came to Capcom Vancouver.

Although Capcom officially says it's a restructure as a result of a "regular periodic assessment", Kotaku's sources have more specific information.

The staff of the studio, before the wave of layoffs, was 250.

Today, from the first hour, Kotaku reported that Capcom Vancouver had undergone a restructuring and, according to a reliable source of which the name was not disclosed in order not to jeopardize his work, around 50 workers were dismissed.

Additionally, according to the report, the cut jobs means that another mystery project has been cancelled. Which might be due to the somewhat lukewarm reception that the Dead Rising 4 received.

But it doesn't appear that employees are the only victim here, as Dead Rising could be quite different with its next iteration.

The anonymous source would only say the game had not yet been greenlit and that it was "a third-person action-adventure game set in an alternate reality version of NY". Following that game's release, Blue Castle was acquired by the Japanese publisher and became Capcom Vancouver, working on the third, fourth, and apparently fifth entries in the Dead Rising series, as well as mobile games including 2017's version of Puzzle Fighter.

As always, our best wishes go out to the former Capcom Vancouver employees who were affected by today's layoffs.
