Last year, Capcom Vancouver closed its doors. The team worked on the Dead Rising series, and although they never said exactly what they were doing, it was made clear that the projects they were working on at that time had been canceled. The future of the franchise was, logically, in the air.
Luckily for the followers of Dead Rising, Capcom announced during its latest fiscal report that the game of zombies is still among its most outstanding IP. With 13 million units sold between four main deliveries and several spin-offs, Dead Rising is placed on the podium with Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter and Dragon’s Dogma.
Capcom has announced that the Rising 4 was not in 2016, but what if it had the same treatment, like the remake of Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 or Monster Hunter: World? We can only speculate about it. Something similar also happens with Dragon’s Dogma, a saga that despite being so important, it had only been a delivery and an expansion in the West, and an MMORPG exclusive to Japan. The director of DMC5 already commented that he wanted to work on a new Dragon’s Dogma, but we do not know if he will achieve it.
