It's not coming to PC :(
Microsoft own the ip

Microsoft published the game.

Snookies121504d ago

H-Huh? Shouldn't that mean it has a good chance of coming to PC?

I'm pretty sure it's inevitable though, I would be very surprised if this stayed a console exclusive.

"Article updated with the Steam app info. The game is in Steam DB with a supposedly code name 'Walking' and its info was updated recently."

Does that mean it will be called 'Walking Dead 3' or something like that? how does that work if MS published the game and yet it is supposed to come to Steam?

MS & Steam????

christocolus1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

Phil said they would do more regarding pc gaming. So it wouldn't be a surprise or this could just be one of those cases and besides i read something recently about a huge announcement to be made at ms e3 conference regarding dead rising 3. Anyhw if this game is going to steam then MS definitly has something to do with it cos not only puvlished it they also funded the development&according to capcom the game would never be made if not for MS.

My guess is that ms and valve may announce some sort of partnership or something at e3 regarding MS published may just be pc related though or it could be more than that.

No, capcom owns the IP. Microsoft published the game.

NYC_Gamer1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

That doesn't rule out a PC version of the title just because MS funded the development on console..

Summons751504d ago

They don't, also Halo and Gears are owned by MS and they have PC releases soooo theory mute.

Of course it's coming to PC, it wouldn't be an Xbox One exclusive if it wasn't multiplatform.

ats19921504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

The last halo game that released on PC was Halo 2 and that was 10 years ago. The only gears game to release on PC was the first one and its been 8 years since that game came out.

Palitera1504d ago

^ owned

Some people don't really realize the real reality of PC gaming on major franchises.

sorane1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )


Halo: Spartan Assault
Release Date: Apr 4, 2014
Platform: PC


You mean the reality that major franchises are doing better than ever on PC? Loving Mortal Kombat Komplete, Dark Souls 2, Injustice, Naruto, and the countless other used-to-be-console-only franchises that are coming to PC these days.

"The last halo game that released on PC was Halo 2 and that was 10 years ago."

From your own mouth. I proved you wrong get over it.

ats19921504d ago

@ sorane

Facepalm thats not a game in the main series its a cell phone game ported to PC and Xbox.

Microsoft does NOT own the IP....Please know what your talking about before you speak, or just don't speak....

And it doesn't matter that Microsoft published the game, again this conversation has been had over and over and over...Ninja Gaiden 2 was published by MS, a year later Ninja Gaiden sigma 2 was released on PS3....Mass Effect 1 was published by MS, also ended up on PS3....

ats19921504d ago

The only reason the Mass effect went to ps3 is because EA bought Bioware you people always seem to forget that.

mkis0071504d ago


yes but even so, the first game was funded by microsoft. it exists with MS money.

aquamala1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

I can think of some XB360 games published by Microsoft that come to PC, Alan Wake, Mark of the Ninja, Deadlight, I'm sure there are more

Rogert1504d ago

don't forget the Fable series as well.

lelo1504d ago

Just a couple of days ago Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (published by Microsoft) was released on the PC.

Spikes14711504d ago


You do know MAX was coming to 360/One. So no doubt they will release on PC

lelo1504d ago

If Microsoft start releasing their exclusives on the PC, then what's the point of having a X1?

allgamespc20121504d ago

you do know, capcom made a mistake right bfore release and said, dr3 was a holiday exclusive by mistake. thus, the reason why its coming to pc.

dead rising 3 didnt even make 2 million copies sold, the game needs a boost and what better platform than pc to put it on. its an ms esclusive, not just xbox 1. xbox 1 and pc can be one and succeed as one if needed be.

Belasco1504d ago

There is not a company named "PC" last time I checked.

allgamespc20121504d ago

thanks, you have officialy made the DUMBEST comment in a while.

XiSasukeUchiha1504d ago

That's means It's is coming to PC bro.

"Rumor: Dead Rising 3 Could Be Coming To PC"

cool if true. too bad this game took up the burden of being a cross platform launch title. it could have been much more optimized had they saved it for later on.

johny51504d ago

Now explain to me why Microsoft wouldn't want to make extra money off sales from PC, on a software platform they own?

People buy the game, they make money, people use there OS and increase market share, they make money, see where this is going?

vork771504d ago

But dont Microsoft also made Windows 7 and 8?

stragomccloud1504d ago

You know Microsoft also makes Windows, right?

ChillOut7071504d ago

Even if microsoft owns the IP then Windows is also their platform and they have their rights to port their exclusive games to PC

Gamer19821503d ago

MS can publish the game it means nothing. They published bioshock, Sony published Final Fantasy VII and both them games didn't stay exclusive. Publishing means nothing when it comes to exclusive rights as it just levys costs from developers. In return they can give exclusive rights but this is MS those rights wouldn't have been permanent as they never pay a lot for exclusives at least not enough to keep it permanently exclusive.

thats a good idea they should do the same to ryse to boost sales. Plus it benefits both pc and xbox gamers in the long run.

DarkLordMalik1504d ago

Microsoft owns Ryse IP. Capcom owns Dead Rising IP. It is more likely for Dead Rising and less likely for Ryse.

Gamer19821503d ago

Agreed Ryse will not come to PC the IP is owned by MS whereas DR3 it was only published by MS. Bioshock is a typical example of a game in the past published by MS on the xbox.

ats19921504d ago

I doubt its coming to PC but its possible.

Volkama1504d ago

If it does come out I hope they update the character models for the main characters. Resolution and framerate and such is a given, but the character models were the one part of the package that really hampered the visual presentation IMO. Particularly as it launched alongside Ryse.

Dudebro901504d ago

Shinobi said something dead rising related will be announced at e3.

Bonkerz1504d ago

Halo has been in the steam DB for years, this means absolutely nothing.

ats19921504d ago

Exactly everybody seems to forget that.

DigitalRaptor1504d ago (Edited 1504d ago )

Never got to the point where there header image was in the database though: http://media.steampowered.c...

Looks a bit too calculated to not be happening. It was running on a PC at E3:

Halo is a Microsoft flagship franchise. Dead Rising 3 isn't.

I'm also sure people thought Alan Wake would always stay exclusive to the 360 until Remedy announced it and its "sequel" for PC. Remedy has roots in PC. Quantum Break for PC in a few years? count on it.
