Capcom seems prepped for another entry in the Dead Rising franchise, unsurprising considering the financial success of Dead Rising 2. Mention of a sequel has popped up on a resume, suggesting Capcom is prepped to make an announcement soon.
A LinkedIn resume (via Joystiq) from a cinematic rigger lists "Dead Rising 3" among his resume, alongside trailers for games like Halo 4 and the upcoming Dark Souls 2. The resume comes from Blur Animation Studios, which does quite a bit of work on cinematics for games and film.
More than a year ago, rumors circulated claiming it will feature a new protagonist again. This one is said to star a mechanic named Rick in Los Perdidos, California, who has to deal with infected illegal citizens, a bomb that threatens to destroy the town, and a broken down plane as his means of escape.
