Dead Rising 4 Developer Capcom Vancouver Has Closed Down

Dead Rising Studio Capcom Vancouver Closed

Capcom Vancouver will have a skeleton crew in place to handle logistics and finalize closure operations until January 2019.

Now, the publisher has confirmed it will shut down Capcom Vancouver entirely, affecting almost 160 employees.

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.

Going forward, Capcom's plan is to focus on game development in Japan, with new R&D facilities opening up in Osaka and hiring waves to go along with that.

Capcom has closed down the Vancouver-based studio behind the Dead Rising series, costing 158 developers their jobs in the process.


In February Capcom announced it had canceled at least two projects at the studios: an unannounced action-adventure title, and the next Dead Rising title.

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) announces that it expects to record losses from the termination of development projects in its consolidated financial results for the six months of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019 (April 1, 2018 - September 30, 2018).

Capcom Vancouver, headquartered in Burnaby, British Columbia, initially opened its doors in 2005 as Blue Castle Games.

The statement concludes "We appreciate the hard work and contributions of all the studio team members in creating unforgettable gameplay experiences for the Dead Rising series and Puzzle Fighter". The result, 2010's Dead Rising 2, was a sales success, resulting in the company being acquired and renamed by Capcom.
