Layoffs And Cancellations At Capcom Vancouver, Scaling Down For New Dead Rising
There have been "significant" layoffs at Capcom Vancouver, the studio heading the Dead Rising series..
The layoffs have affected multiple projects, including cancellation of a third-person action game set in an alternative reality New York that was still in a prototype stage. It also downscales a new Dead Rising project the studio has been working on, lessening the scope on the project that had reportedly become unwieldy.
Capcom Vancouver is responsible for Dead Rising 2 and its Frank West-lead remake, Dead Rising 3, Dead Rising 4, and the recently-released PS4 port of Dead Rising 4 titled Frank's Big Package. The studio also just began support for the free-to-play Puzzle Fighter game on mobile phones.
