Dead Rising 2 developer working on new IP

Plus a second "AAA" title - Dead Rising 3?

Capcom Vancouver, the developer behind Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising: Off The Record, is working on a brand new IP, according to a recruitment call from the studio.

A job advertisement on recruitment site Creative Heads, spotted by GamerZines, calls for a design director for a new third person action adventure.

A separate ad calling for artists, posted over on Gamasutra, mentions that the studio currently has two projects in development.

Could the other title be Dead Rising 3? Reports late last year suggested that a third game in the OTT zombie franchise was in the works and will be set in the fictional town of Los Perdidos, which is locked down and under martial law following an undead outbreak.

Capcom Vancouver was formally known as Blue Castle Games before the Japanese publisher snapped it up. Previous work included baseball series The Bigs for 2K Games.
