A rumor that a third numbered entry in Capcom’s popular zombie-filled action series Dead Rising is making the rounds. The rumor comes via the Linked In profile of a Jeremie Passerin, a rigging supervisor at Blur Studio. In his profile, Jeremie claims to have worked as a rigger on a game cinematic for Dead Rising 3. This work was allegedly done last year. At the time of this writing, the Dead Rising 3 listing had already been removed from Jeremie’s profile, but the savvy folks at All Games Beta captured the below screenshot while it was still there.
No confirmation of Dead Rising 3 has come from Capcom, so this should be treated as a rumor until further notice. Dead Rising 2 was released back in September of 2010, so I’d say it was high time for a part three. What do you all think of this rumor? Is anyone excited by the possibility of DR3?
