Dead Rising 2 dev hit by layoffs

By Andrew Yoon, Jul 18, 2012 4:30pm PDT

Capcom Vancouver, formerly known as Blue Castle Games, has been hit by layoffs. The team is best known for their work on Dead Rising 2 (all four of them).

The studio confirmed layoffs via Twitter: "Capcom Vancouver has let go 7% of our employees as a result of unsuitable fit with the studio goals." Intriguingly, in spite of the layoffs, the studio claims that it is still hiring.

The success of Dead Rising 2 spurred the acquisition. In fact, it's largely believed that the team is working on a Dead Rising 3. The exact reason for the layoffs is currently unclear, but Capcom's financials have not been so hot as of late.
