Capcom may be working on a new Dead Rising game

It appears that Capcom may be working on a brand new Dead Rising game. Earlier today, Capcom announced that it will shut down Puzzle Fighter on July 31st and as the Japanese company stated, it will be now dedicating the focus of its Vancouver studio to its flagship Dead Rising franchise.

This could basically mean that a new Dead Rising, presumably Dead Rising 5, is currently under development. The last Dead Rising game that got out was Dead Rising 4. Dead Rising 4 came out in December 2016 and performed quite well on the PC platform. However, the game was also using the controversial Denuvo anti-tamper tech and was originally released exclusively on Microsoft’s Windows Store.

In April 2017, Capcom revealed that the game did not meet its expectations and its latest update was released in December 2017. Since then, Capcom has not released any new update or content, so it’s safe to assume that the Vancouver studio is now working on a new Dead Rising game.
