Dead Rising Studio Capcom Vancouver Shuts Down

Capcom Has Shut Down Its Vancouver Studio

It took over the Dead Rising series in 2010 with Dead Rising 2 and its DLCs, and went on to create Dead Rising 3 and the better-received Dead Rising 4.

Capcom Vancouver will have a skeleton crew in place to handle logistics and finalize closure operations until January 2019. The studio was primarily responsible for development on the popular but recently troubled Dead Rising franchise, as well as the now-shuttered mobile game Puzzle Fighter.

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 a result, 158 people have lost their jobs.

Capcom says it expects to record about $52 million in losses from the cancelled projects. But the new Dead Rising game isn't the only casualty: Capcom Vancouver is actually closing down.

Capcom Vancouver, the studio behind the Dead Rising franchise, has been shut down by parent company Capcom.

"Capcom has been focused on increasing the efficiency and growth of its game development operations", a rep told Variety via email. Along with this announcement, they have also shared that Monster Hunter World sales on PC have exceeded their expectations.

Capcom's statement on the closure is interesting though as it implies that all its major titles, whether that includes Dead Rising or not, will be developed in Japan.

Earlier today, Capcom said in a press release it expects to lose about 4.5 billion yen after terminating a number of unnamed projects at the Vancouver studio.
