According to the post, work on the untitled game is just beginning, and Capcom is only about halfway through staffing up for the project. The studio currently lists a range of career opportunities, including calls for various software engineers, a project manager, a senior game designer, and a design director.

An ideal candidate for the senior game designer position would have experience developing third-person AAA action games.

"We’re just getting started with the game so this is a great chance to really get your hands deep into the design. It’s your opportunity to put your stamp on a game early in the development process," reads a line from the statement. "PS…No zombies."

Capcom Vancouver was established in 2010 when Capcom purchased Blue Castle Games (The Bigs, Dead Rising 2) for an undisclosed sum as part of its global strategy of better targeting Western gamers.
