While Dead Rising 4 may have served as a big comeback for photographer (and costume master) Frank West, it didn't provide many happy returns when it came to Capcom Vancouver. This situation has already impacted the development of a project and could do so in the next Dead Rising. The "approximately 30 percent" figure seems to be more or less in line with a 50-person estimate. The move comes to focus on a pullback in scope on the next Dead Rising game, which was reportedly too ambitious and under-staffed.

Although it was only from its Capcom Vancouver branch, only 250 employees were employed at the studio, and the reasons for these layoffs are apparently due to a re-shift in the company. The team is still dedicated to the Dead Rising series however, the developers didn't comment on the rumours about the rumoured cancelled unannounced project. The game existed as a very early prototype and had yet to be greenlit. One unannounced and unnamed project that was being worked on by Capcom Vancouver has ended up being scrapped altogether.
