Capcom producer Keiji Inafune says work on a sequel to Dead Rising has not yet commenced, despite it being the title he would most like to work on. Aw.
In an interview with Game Informer, Inafune said: "Dead Rising 2...is something I would love to make [but] we're not making it right now."
The news will certainly come as a disappointment for fans of the chart-topping Xbox 360 exclusive, especially after comments by Capcom's Mark Beaumont earlier this year in which he stated that the company was keen to "establish a new franchise that we can use for years to come".
That said, Inafune did admit: "If [Dead Rising 2] was announced, I might be the one back in Japan making it.
"That's the title that they're considering back in Capcom Japan that I would want to produce the most, out of anything they're thinking about. That's how much I really love it. But I'm very busy," he added.
So. In summary: Inafune-san - stop being busy and get back to making games that we want to play! Thank you. Love, Eurogamer.
