Capcom Vancouver, the studio behind the most recent entries in the Dead Rising series including Dead Rising 4, has closed down. That means Capcom's primary western developer is no more following 30% of the studio's workforce being laid off earlier this year.

"As a result of reviewing titles in development at Capcom Vancouver, Capcom has decided to cancel the development projects at this studio and will concentrate development of major titles in Japan," a Capcom representative told Kotaku. "A skeleton crew will remain until January 2019 to finalise closure operations and logistics."

Apparently, 158 people will lose their jobs as a result of the studio's closure after 13 years of operation, Capcom Vancouver first forming in 2005 as Blue Castle Games and best known for its work on Dead Rising 2 and its sequels. A new Dead Rising game had been expected, but it's unknown where development duties will now fall for the zombie actioner's future iterations.

"We appreciate the hard work and contributions of all the studio team members in creating unforgettable gameplay experiences for the Dead Rising series and Puzzle Fighter," Capcom's spokesperson added.
