According to the latest edition of EGM, a Dead Rising 2 sequel is in the works. The Capcom zombie game was an Xbox 360 exclusive, and the second title is apparently bein handled by a US developer in the LA area. Completely uncorfirmed, this, but we’d be surprised if the game didn’t appear at some point.
