The developer behind Dead Rising 2 suffered layoffs today, Capcom confirmed. The company let go 7 percent of its total workforce due to an "unsuitable fit" with studio goals.

"Capcom Vancouver has laid off 20 staff as part of its regular periodic assessment of overall studio goals," a representative told Game Informer. "The studio is actively hiring talented staff to support its goal of delivering high quality games."

The Vancouver-based studio first formed in 2005 as Blue Castle Games before being renamed to Capcom Vancouver after being acquired in September 2010.
