Capcom announced that it expects to record losses from the termination of development projects at its Capcom Game Studio Vancouver.
Looks like any Dead Rising games that may have been in development are now cancelled
Meh, they weren't all that great after the second one and it's DLCs. 3 was okay. I did not like 4 at all. #notmyfrank
Wasted their time and resources on this (not funny) horror series when they should have rebuilt RE Outbreak for this Gen. They could have built an actual Racoon City like The Division and randomly generated where survival items are, where zombies are inside and outside the buildings and had you trying to escape and survive. Not just from zombies but also extermination from The Umbrella Security Service. With rain, some areas dark because of loss of power, car fires, lamp lights flickering, randomly chased by a tyrant or lickers,hunters,etc. But nope. Too much time and money spent on dead rising. Or, they could have actually finished deep down. But it's too late as the PS4 exclusive Project Awakening that will be at the Tokyo Game Show will replace it. https://m.youtube.com/watch... Capcom needs to do better or ask Platinum Games for help making some of their games like when they were Clover Studios and Seeds Inc/Odd.
I only played the first dead rising (and liked it, although I found it a bit too hard for my personal tastes) but the newer games featured unlikeable characters. A common problem these days. The characters should have heart. Instead, they’re selfish and nasty.
In the yester years, they used to hand over development of established franchises to external studios... Now that seems to have changed...
Capcom....give us a new Viewtiful Joe. Please and thank you.
well at least they were yet unannounced games, so not too many people are going to be butthurt over specfic titles they were looking forward to. Too bad for the devs involved though. Wonder if this will result in layoffs down the road :(
Last game wasn’t really that great. They just needed to stick with DR2 on what they did right rather than changing things for the worse.
Honestly the dev team that built Infinite deserved this more.
This could actually be a good thing. Reception to Capcom has been really great lately, and they might have taken a nice, long look at what they've been doing and decided to stop a particular direction they were going in to take a better road. I've said it before, but one of the things that almost put Capcom out of business was trying to cater too much with their IP to a Western audience. New customers didn't care and old ones felt their favorite series were ruined. Marvel vs. Capcom aside (I really blame Disney for that abomination), Capcom has come a long way in the few years since they had to have Sony bankroll Street Fighter V. I'm really, really looking forward to Resident Evil, Megaman 11 and Monster Hunter World Ultimate.
Good point. I like this answer.
