Looks like multiple staff members from Capcom Vancouver are being let go as well as the scope of Dead Rising has been reduced due to this!
Originally reported from an anonymous source, 50 people were laid off as part of a reorganization aimed to streamline the company and wrangle the next Dead Rising, which had been over-scoped and under-staffed. Capcom Vancouver only had about 250 employees in the building so this was quite a few jobs being released!
An official statement was released stating:
Capcom Vancouver has undergone a restructure which has impacted approximately 30% of the studio, as part of its regular periodic assessment of upcoming projects and overall studio goals. The team is continuing to work hard to support the recent release of Puzzle Fighter for mobile and is dedicated to its flagship Dead Rising series.
