title="Permanent Link to Dead Rising 3 announced for PC, will release this Summer">Dead Rising 3







And another E3 announcement misses the conference. Earlier this week, Dead Rising 3 appeared on the Steam database, leading to speculation that it was coming to PC. Capcom have now confirmed that speculation with a trailer, and with the words "Dead Rising 3 for PC".







According to the trailer's description, "PC gamers will be able to experience the hordes of horror at high PC resolutions with fully optimized visuals for the wide screen, upgraded textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects". In other words, it'll be a PC game. Next, they'll be telling us it will have Steam achievements and trading cards... oh, wait. "Dead Rising 3 for PC will include Steam platform support with Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, global leaderboards and full game controller support."



Anyway, a new Dead Rising. If you've played a previous one, you'll know what to expect: silly costumes, crafted weapons and an absurd number of zombies.

Capcom Vancouver, the studio behind Dead Rising 2 and its various spin-offs, is hiring for what it calls Capcom's "next big game." This comes just after we spotted "Dead Rising 3" on an animator resume, but Vancouver may not be working on the sequel.

The page teasing the new game explicitly says "No Zombies," and suggests that the new project will avoid touching any of Capcom's legacy properties. Either the Vancouver studio is being cheeky about Dead Rising 3, or it's moving on to a brand new franchise. That would put DR3 in the hands of another studio at Capcom, assuming the previous rumors are correct.

The available positions include upper ranks, like senior producer and design director, along with engineering positions. That makes sense, because the new game is said to be just starting and the positions are only half-filled.

Capcom seems prepped for another entry in the Dead Rising franchise, unsurprising considering the financial success of Dead Rising 2. Mention of a sequel has popped up on a resume, suggesting Capcom is prepped to make an announcement soon.

A LinkedIn resume (via Joystiq) from a cinematic rigger lists "Dead Rising 3" among his resume, alongside trailers for games like Halo 4 and the upcoming Dark Souls 2. The resume comes from Blur Animation Studios, which does quite a bit of work on cinematics for games and film.

More than a year ago, rumors circulated claiming it will feature a new protagonist again. This one is said to star a mechanic named Rick in Los Perdidos, California, who has to deal with infected illegal citizens, a bomb that threatens to destroy the town, and a broken down plane as his means of escape.

Announcement - Valve
Freaks of the night, rejoice! Steam has unleashed monster savings on ghoulish (and not so creepy) titles. From now until about the time all the pumpkins are smashed*, over 80 titles (including The Walking Dead, Bioshock, Left 4 Dead, and many more) are available at prices so low, it’s scary.

Kotaku

Layoffs Reported At Dead Rising 2 Developer [UPDATE: 20 Staff Let Go]Rumors are swirling that Capcom Vancouver, the development studio behind Dead Rising 2, has laid off multiple people.



One source contacted Kotaku to tell us he knew several people who were laid off today. Multiple people also reported the layoffs both on Twitter and the gaming message board NeoGAF.



Yesterday on Twitter in response to news that BioWare Austin had laid off employees, a recruiter for Capcom Vancouver said they were hiring.



I've reached out to Capcom for comment and will update should they respond.



Update: Our source has just informed us that there is a company-wide meeting scheduled for 3pm Pacific Time.



Update 2: In response to Kotaku's request for comment, Capcom sent us the following statement: "Capcom Vancouver has laid off 20 staff as part of its regular periodic assessment of overall studio goals. The studio is actively hiring talented staff to support its goal of delivering high quality games."

Capcom Vancouver, formerly known as Blue Castle Games, has been hit by layoffs. The team is best known for their work on Dead Rising 2 (all four of them).

The studio confirmed layoffs via Twitter: "Capcom Vancouver has let go 7% of our employees as a result of unsuitable fit with the studio goals." Intriguingly, in spite of the layoffs, the studio claims that it is still hiring.

The success of Dead Rising 2 spurred the acquisition. In fact, it's largely believed that the team is working on a Dead Rising 3. The exact reason for the layoffs is currently unclear, but Capcom's financials have not been so hot as of late.

Product Release - Valve
4 items of downloadable content are now available for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record via Steam.
