Capcom Vancouver’s Dead Rising 4

In a statement given to GI.biz, Capcom said that it is "focused on increasing the efficiency and growth of its game development operations". The team also worked on the mobile Puzzle Fighter. To support this objective, new R&D facilities and annual hiring have been underway at the Osaka headquarters.

Industry giant Capcom has announced the termination of all projects now underway at Capcom Vancouver - the division responsible for titles such as Dead Rising and Puzzle Fighter - in a move that is set to record huge losses for the Japanese developer/publisher.

As part of this overall direction, the CV studio will suspend operations, effective today, so the current staff will be laid off and the office will be closed.

As said, Capcom haven't shared what will become of the third-person survival game, so there's every chance the main studio could pick up where Vancouver left off.

Following a press release issued earlier today in which Capcom revealed "the termination of development projects" at Capcom Vancouver, the publisher confirmed in a statement sent to Kotaku that the studio will be closed completely early next year.

The success of Monster Hunter: World though seems to have signalled a change in corporate logic, even if it has unfortunately caused the closure of Capcom Vancouver.

Fans of the hugely popular Dead Rising series may be upset to hear that the Capcom Vancouver studio is shutting its doors for good. While Capcom's rep confirmed multiple titles were cancelled, they said there are no more details to share at this time.
