Capcom Vancouver is hiring, and is looking for people with experience in Unreal Engine 4. With an emphasis on saying that this is the time behind Dead Rising, is this a hint that Dead Rising 4 may be on the way?
The news that Capcom were looking for developers were revealed by the company themselves, and while the mention of Dead Rising may just be a coincidence, it is enough to catch interest of the fans:
“You may be familiar with the acclaimed Dead Rising franchise. Today, the team behind the games, Capcom Game Studio Vancouver, has some great news to share. They’re working with Epic Games to utilize Unreal Engine 4 for their upcoming projects, and they’re hiring! It doesn’t matter if you’ve covered wars, you know.”
The move to Unreal Engine 4 is also a big step for the company, as Joe Nickolls, Studio Director reveals:
“We have some ambitious visions for where we want to take our next games and while our previous proprietary engine served the needs for the projects at the time, shifting to Unreal Engine 4 delivers the right tools for our future direction. Not only will we be developing on a powerful and versatile platform, we’ll also work closely with the team at Epic to maximize the capabilities of the latest and greatest technology. Using this industry leading engine also allows us to quickly integrate new talent onto our projects so that we can focus on pioneering new world class entertainment.”
Details on the jobs can be found at the Capcom Vancouver website, though they are being tight-lipped about the games they will be working on. Hopefully the little hints at Dead Rising 4 in the announcements mean that it will be one of them.
