Dead Rising 2 dev at work on new IP

Capcom hiring a design director to work on third-person action adventure title at Vancouver studio formerly known as Blue Castle.


Capcom Vancouver's last project was the zombie action revamp Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, but the studio has more on its slate than simply reanimating existing games. According to a job posting spotted by GamerZines, Capcom Vancouver is now hiring a design director for an original intellectual property.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record was Capcom Vancouver's latest effort.

Capcom Vancouver lists the project as an "unannounced new IP" and a third-person action adventure title. The post also states the developer needs "the help of smart, passionate and dedicated people to help us make our open world action games!" There aren't many other details to be gleaned from the job description, although the note that the design director will be "defining the creative vision for the game" in tandem with the executive producer suggests it isn't going gold anytime soon.

Capcom Vancouver is best known for its work on Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, the former of which it created under the name Blue Castle Games. Prior to Dead Rising 2 and its acquisition by Capcom, Blue Castle worked with Take-Two Interactive on a number of MLB-licensed baseball titles, including The Bigs and The Bigs 2.
