An anonymous source told Kotaku that a number of layoffs have hit Capcom Vancouver, the studio responsible for Dead Rising, as part of a reorganisation intended to "streamline the company and wrangle the next Dead Rising, which had been over-scoped and under-staffed."
"Capcom Vancouver has undergone a restructure which has impacted approximately 30% of the studio, as part of its regular periodic assessment of upcoming projects and overall studio goals. The team is continuing to work hard to support the recent release of Puzzle Fighter for mobile and is dedicated to its flagship Dead Rising series."
They made no mention of the cancelled title, and it’s also worth noting that a new Dead Rising has yet to be officially announced, although it sounds like they do have plans for the future.
