Whilst Dead Rising 3 was considered in some form for a possible Xbox 360 release it hit fundamental issues in prototyping. Producer on Dead Rising 3 Mike Jones commented, according to OXM, “The goals we set ourselves for Dead Rising 3 were just not possible on the current systems. We knew it would have to be a next-gen game and Microsoft was supportive of the idea.”
Dead Rising 3 has been developed predominantly at Capcom Vancouver which was also the main driving force behind Dead Rising 2. Jones explained:
“They helped to solve problems. We’re in Vancouver, they’re in Seattle, right, so the back and forth is amazing. We had engineers come live in the studio for a while, we’d go and visit them all the time. And they absolutely helped us make the game that we always wanted to make, and because of the power of the Xbox One and all the support we got from Microsoft. Because of our mutual history with Dead Rising 1 and Dead Rising 2 that they were already big fans of the franchise, and thought it would be great for Xbox One, and we got to make the game that we always wanted to make. So it was a beautiful partnership.”
