Layoffs Reported At Dead Rising 2 Developer

Rumours are swirling that Capcom Vancouver, the development studio behind Dead Rising 2, has laid off multiple people.

One source contacted Kotaku to tell us he knew several people who were laid off today. Multiple people also reported the layoffs both on Twitter and the gaming message board NeoGAF.

Yesterday on Twitter, in response to news that BioWare Austin had laid off employees, a recruiter for Capcom Vancouver said they were hiring.

I’ve reached out to Capcom for comment and will update should they respond.

Update: Our source has just informed us that there is a company-wide meeting scheduled for 3pm Pacific Time (8am AEST).
