After a string of disappointments — Resident Evil 6, DmC: Devil May Cry, Resident Evil: Revelations, Lost Planet 3 — Capcom has high hopes for their Xbox One launch title, Dead Rising 3. The publisher released their second quarter financial report, which managed to improve over the previous quarter by 20 percent. Not bad. Capcom also revealed their sales target for the next-gen zombie bash ’em up, which they’re expecting to sell 1.2 million units between November 22 and March 31, 2014.
With the exception of a poorly optimized Gamescom build and an unfortunate comment regarding Call of Duty, Dead Rising 3 has some great buzz surrounding it. It’s gorgeous, improves over its predecessors in really neat way and it manages to take on a grittier, more realistic art style without sacrificing the series’ trademark zaniness.
I hope it performs well, because the game looks great. Anyone here planning on grabbing a copy?
