Dead Rising 2: No date, no detail, no nothing

Tuesday, 10th February 2009 11:20 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Dead Rising 2, eh? We’re pumped. You’re pumped. Everyone’s pumped. How long are we going to have to stay pumped for before we play it?

We just asked Capcom PR and were told that nothing’s known about the game other than the information in the press release. There’s no release date, no detail. No nothing.

When’s it out?

“We haven’t announced it yet.”

Do you know when you’re going to announce it?

“No, I don’t. Sorry.”

Will we see it at GDC?

“Unconfirmed,” said the rep, who stopped us and said that the only thing he’d seen on Dead Rising 2 so far is the press release Capcom put out yesterday, the accompanying screenshots and an internal design doc.

The announcement caused muchos excitement yesterday, and rightly so. The press release carried virtually no detail, though, aside from the fact the game’s being developed by Blue Castle, is set years after the original and includes… zombies.

There’s no date, kids. Stay pumped.

    Which leaves the question…

    What about Dead Rising 1 for the PS3?

    What about it?

    I can’t imagine them going to back to do a port now. If they were going to do it, they’d have done it when they did Lost Planet.

    I had a thought in mind thinking what if they split the game into DLC episodes for the PS Store but then, it might not be as well.

    I suspect it’s not a coincidence that we have a new setting, story and lead protagonist in the sequel.

    Well… If it is a coincidence, it’s pretty lucky for us lean mean grilling machine owners,
