Capcom Vancouver Suffers Layoffs, Next Dead Rising Game Not Yet Greenlit

  • Dead Rising Studio Capcom Vancouver Affected By Layoffs

The studio is best known for developing the second, third, and fourth games in Capcom's humorous zombie-killing series. Dead Rising is one of the most notable Capcom titles, and so this reorganization of the Vancouver branch might be to bring the series back to its roots.

The Kotaku story estimates that 50 employees were let go, and LinkedIn puts the studio size at 250 people. Unfortunately, it looks like some studio troubles might be getting in the way though, with a round of job cuts hitting Capcom Vancouver this week. It's a plausible shift after Dead Rising 4 mostly failed to gain much traction. According to a report from Kotaku, this means that an unannounced game that was still an early prototype has been scratched.

Approximately 30 percent of the studio was laid off, which has resulted in the cancellation of an unannounced project. The original plan for the Dead Rising title was for it to take place in an alternate version of NY. Secondly, it looks like we can expect more Dead Rising in the future.


Dead Rising 4 was a timed exclusive for Xbox One before launching late past year on PS4 in a new bundle. Hopefully, the restructuring of the project and the team will leave the developers with something much more manageable.

However, the spokesman did not confirm that any project had been canceled and reaffirmed the work of the studio in upcoming titles: "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".
