Capcom Vancouver (formerly known as Blue Castle Games) and Epic Games today announced a partnership that will allow the studio behind Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 3 to develop its upcoming titles with the powerful Unreal Engine 4. It is likely that in the case of a new entry we will see popular franchise of zombies, but the Canadian developer has also other projects in mind.

More details on these, leaving aside the implementation of this graphics engine, have not yet been announced. The Canadian section of Capcom also plans to expand its team by opening a new recruiting season where they will be primarily to developers familiar with Unreal Engine 4, which seek to integrate into the creation of new gaming experiences.
“Our ambition is to bring our games to the next level. We believe that Unreal Engine 4 offers are appropriate and necessary tools to do so. “says Joe Nickolls, director of the study.
Capcom Vancouver Game Studio not only will deal with the development of future deliveries, but also work closely with the team at Epic to maximize the capabilities of their technology.
“Using this engine leader, apart from allowing us to quickly integrate new talent, it gives us the opportunity to position ourselves as a leading supplier of entertainment.” he concludes.
