Dead Rising Studio Capcom Vancouver Affected By Layoffs

If Capcom makes another game that performs like Dead Rising 4, there could be another round of layoffs. The studio has undergone a restructure, cutting about 30% of its staff, which of course also impacts the projects being worked on. The studio has made official its decision to let go about 50 of its employees, which represents 30% of the members of the team. According to a report from Kotaku, this means that an unannounced game that was still an early prototype has been scratched.

Walcott scored over 100 goals for Arsenal , but is still carries a "what-might-have-been" feeling amongst Arsenal fans.

Kotaku on Monday reported that a source inside Capcom's Canadian studio (formerly Blue Castle Games) had indicated that the company would be making cuts to staffing. It's a plausible shift after Dead Rising 4 mostly failed to gain much traction. Following that game's release, Blue Castle was acquired by the Japanese publisher and became Capcom Vancouver, working on the third, fourth, and apparently fifth entries in the Dead Rising series, as well as mobile games including 2017's version of Puzzle Fighter. The original plan for the Dead Rising title was for it to take place in an alternate version of NY. The reason behind the firings is streamlining the company, and lowering the scope of the new Dead Rising. Disliked by the majority of critics and fans, the sequel failed to capture the magic of a Dead Rising game, instead opting for a more streamlined (read: less like Dead Rising) and straightforward approach. Best wishes to all who are affected.
