Capcom Closes Dead Rising Studio Capcom Vancouver

Capcom Has Shut Down Its Vancouver Studio

Capcom announced earlier today it had canceled multiple projects at the Vancouver-based studio responsible for the Dead Rising series.

Capcom Vancouver is officially shutting down. But, Capcom said it's now reviewing "the allocation of its development resources that support the production of world-class content". "To support this objective, new R&D facilities and annual hiring have been underway at the Osaka headquarters", Capcom said in a statement. The team also worked on the mobile 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.

Capcom's most prominent Western development studio has been closed down, with the loss of 158 jobs.

Capcom says the termination of the Burnaby studio will cost the company $52 million CAD (4.5 billion yen).

Capcom Vancouver, headquartered in Burnaby, British Columbia, initially opened its doors in 2005 as Blue Castle Games. The company cut its teeth working on sports titles before Capcom handed them the development reins to Dead Rising 2, which launched in 2010.

Dead Rising 4: Frank's Big Package launched for the PS4 a year ago.

Other games developed at the Capcom Vancouver office included Puzzle Fighter, The Bigs and MLB Front Office Manager. Do you love Dead Rising? Given the fact that Capcom has seen a lot of success in recent years with franchises like Monster Hunter and Resident Evil, it's surprising that they would close Capcom Vancouver.
