With this week’s reveals at E3 2016, one of Microsoft’s big announcements was the return of Frank West for the upcoming Dead Rising 4, which Microsoft has also confirmed that the title will be timed-exclusive to Microsoft platforms for the time being.
During this week’s E3 2016, Microsoft confirmed in a statement to GameSpot that Dead Rising 4 will be timed-exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs during its initial release, while also confirming a previous rumor that the game will be coming in December.
Specifically, Microsoft confirmed that Dead Rising 4 “will remain a Windows 10 exclusive for the first 90 days and console exclusive on Xbox One for one year,” putting a clear amount of time behind both the PC and Xbox One release before it may potentially appear on other platforms, such as Steam or PS4.
Microsoft also explained in its statement that “we’ve had a close and longstanding relationship with Capcom including the launch of Dead Rising as an Xbox 360 exclusive and Dead Rising 3 as an Xbox One exclusive,” adding that “we’re thrilled to partner with Capcom once again to help bring their ambitious vision for Dead Rising 4 to life.”
Dead Rising 4 will release for Xbox One and PC in December 2016.
