In a surprise to many, Capcom appears to be returning to the Dead Rising franchise.
Despite Dead Rising 4 having weak sales and a tepid response from gamers, according to a post on Capcom Unity, Capcom has decided to give it another go with Dead Rising, but at the cost of another franchise. More specifically, the post reads, “As the studio is dedicating its focus to our flagship Dead Rising franchise, we have decided to sunset Puzzle Fighter.”
For those who don’t know, Puzzle Fighter was a revival of the 90s puzzle game of the same name that had various Capcom characters duking it out in a Tetris-style block game. The original version is actually a lot of fun. This new game wasn’t.
More importantly, however, is that the Dead Rising franchise will be getting another chance to get back to its glory days. How Capcom plans to do that remains to be seen.
