Dead Rising 2 Dev, Capcom Vancouver Working on "Next Big Game"

Richard Walker

With rumours surrounding a new Dead Rising currently doing the rounds, it seems that developer Capcom Vancouver has more than one project in the pipeline, with an announcement from the Dead Rising 2 studio declaring that it's working on Capcom's "next big game". And it's one without zombies in it too.

“Capcom has one of the industry's greatest back catalogues but for our next project we've been given the opportunity to create Capcom's next big game,” states a post on the developer's site, under the banner of "NEW GAME".

“We're just getting started with the game so this is a great chance to really get your hands deep into the design,” the post continues in a call out for new staff to join the project. “It's your opportunity to put your stamp on a game early in the development process.”

How do we know it's not the next Dead Rising though? “PS... NO ZOMBIES,” the update concludes. So, while Dead Rising 3 looks like a distinct possibility, it appears that Capcom Vancouver has a second project in the offing. A new IP perhaps? A next-gen title maybe? We'll have to wait for an official announcement to be sure.

  • Fred rising! Everyones a walking Fred!
  • Oh no! Not another game that doesn't have zombies! No wait..
  • Then make a game whith walkers
  • Zombies will be day one DLC.
  • @3 So zombies then? I'd love to see a Dead Rising 3, but this time with Chuck & Frank AND NO STUPID GIRLS THAT NEED ZOMBREX EVERY FUCKING SECOND.
  • @3 nonsense comment
  • Lost rising 3 ?
  • I wouldn't mind dead risising 3 personaly, provided they make it stand out from the other titles, but we do need new IP's, there aren't all that many new IP's that stand out coming up, we could do with something a bit more fresh.
  • NO ZOMBIES!!! why make Dead Rising 3?whats the point then.
  • I hope new IP for bring back Survival Horror alive again since Capcom blocked Survival Horror for Resi Evil 5 and Resi Evil ORC also just 30% Survival Horror for Leon story in Resi Evil 6. So I understand Capcom for want story follow up which is why not to have Survival Horror for Resi Evil series in recent of years but I do hope Capcom give us Survival Horror for new IP. This will be good in my opinion. Cannot wait to see what Capcom Vancouver bring new game.
  • dead rising 3 should have bass as an easter egg costume like proto man and megaman or maybe something from an other series a ryu outfit with gloves that shoot HADOUKENS!!!!!
  • No zombies... no buy.
  • Resident Evil 7: We Were Just Kidding About #6 Edition?
  • Please Capcom make a Monster Hunter for xbox and release to more than just Japan!!
  • If it is a new IP I hope its better than Dark Void... thats about it... Dragons Dogma was AMAZING
