Dead Rising 4’s release date is still days away, but a recent interview brought up the potential of its sequels. Does this mean a Dead Rising 5 is around the corner as well?
Given that the fourth installment of the franchise won’t come out until next week, this is unlikely. Nevertheless,
a piece from Games Industry.biz brought up the possibility of a follow up to Dead Rising 4.
Game Industry.biz‘s Christopher Dring sat with Capcom Vancouver’s Joe Nickolls to talk about Dead Rising 4. Nickolls serves as studio head for the developer. The interview mostly took discussion on the upcoming Dead Rising installment. However, the interview also considered the future of the installment.
Games Industry.biz quotes Dead Rising executive producer Bryce Cochrane as saying:
“One of our goals is to really make a product that means we can make Dead Rising 5, 6, 7. That involves expanding and changing the franchise, and therefore sometimes we need to take risks. That means some people will be upset with what you did. The only way to truly tell if we made the right choices is to play the game.”
