Dead Rising 3 is - or was - in development, according to the latest reports.
The news comes from animation, design and VFX company Blur Studio, the outfit responsible for the title sequence of 2011‘s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, as well as a number of cinematics for video games including Dark Souls 2 and Halo 4.
While BioShock 3 most likely refers to the upcoming (and announced) BioShock Infinite, Dead Rising 3 is a little more mysterious.
We haven’t heard anything on the subject since the tail end of 2011, when it was suggested that Dead Rising 3 was to star a mechanic called Rick.
According to that report the game would be set in Los Perdidos, California, a town not just overrun by zombies but also with a bomb at its centre waiting to explode.
Playing as Rick it’s your job to repair a plane and escape the town before it’s blown to bits. You can read a little more on the subject here and there's an image of Rick below.
Now, all of this stuff about Rick is uncorroborated, unofficial info. Indeed, even if it was true over 12 months ago it may not be now. A year is a long time in video game development.
All we do know for sure is that Capcom, most likely Capcom Vancouver, has put significant work into another Dead Rising sequel.
