Rumor: Dead Rising 2 Coming From The Bigs Team?

Remember that rumor from EGM that pointed to a Dead Rising sequel coming from a Western developer? Kotaku heard a similar but slightly different rumor from a source that also says development duties are being shifted stateside, specifically at Vancouver-area third-party Blue Castle Games. If you're not familiar with the name, you may remember Blue Castle from its work on The Bigs for 2K Sports. While the relatively young, 100-person strong development studio is known only for its multi-platform sports title, it is currently listing an unnamed "action game" for the Xbox 360 as one of three projects on its plate.

The story is too old to be commented.

This would be horrible news if true.

Am I the only one who wants a new Dead Rising more than a new Resident Evil?

Yeah...I thought so :(

MK_Red3890d ago

You're not alone! Defeinitly and absolutly agreed. I want Dead Rising 2 way more than RE5.

It's a shame that the devs are changing. I PRAY to God that it's not true and original's team makes the sequel.

I do want a new Resident Evil, but I'd be just fine with a new Dead Rising in the meantime.

Also, we want multi-plat...

shanezx3890d ago

Just want it in on Xbox 360. I still play Dead rising today. Awesome game

The Snake3890d ago

Multiplat or not, I don't care. I just want this game.

No you don't, PS owners called called capcom, "crapcom" and bash them for everything.

then they better not screw it up. The original game wasn't perfect by any means, but it was a great start to what could be another outstanding franchise for Capcom. The last thing they need is for the second game to come out and underwhelm (or suck) compared to the first game. They were able to get by with Devil May Cry after the 2nd game, but they may not be able to this time. Handing the reigns over to another team like that is risky, and if true, I hope they know what they are doing. At least Silent Hill 5, despite being made by western developers, seems to be going in a good direction, so there is still hope for this game.
