Dead Rising 3 listed on Blur Studios animator’s resume
While this is far from a confirmation, I’m sure that we all know how this works. Tiny hints start to seep into the internet and before you know it, boom!; sequel confirmed by evidence before Capcom has a chance to say anything. Dead Rising 3 may or may not be coming, but seeing as how Capcom’s other zombie title didn’t do so well, I wouldn’t be surprised if they started work on getting Dead Rising 3 out of the door.
Blue Castle Games, now Capcom Vancouver, hasn’t revealed any new projects since the release of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record–arguably the better Dead Rising 2 title. Just last summer the studio suffered some layoffs, but they’re still running strong with about 170 employees.
So, since they’ve been so hush since the release of Off The Record, I hope that they’re working on a new Dead Rising project. Personally, I would prefer to see Off The Record become canon. Sorry Chuck, you’re just not as fun. Nor was your game.
