The staff reductions will include members who were working on a new, unannounced IP and some from the Dead Rising development team.

Capcom has sent out a letter explaining that its Vancouver studio has been hit by a layoff. The upcoming Dead Rising title hadn't been officially announced, and was "over-scoped and under-staffed (as many video games are)" according to the report.

A source speaking with Kotaku confirmed that around 50 employees were laid off as part of a "reorganization" aimed to streamline operations.

There was also an unannounced game in development at Capcom Vancouver, set to be a third-person action/adventure game taking place in an alternate version of NY. The previous two Dead Rising games, Dead Rising 3 and Dead Rising 4, strayed away from the previous formula of the two entries of the title. With Dead Rising 5 going back to the drawing board, it might be awhile before we get our first glimpse at the sequel.

Approximately 30 percent of the studio was laid off, which has resulted in the cancellation of an unannounced project. The Dead Rising studio was recently restructured to reduce from around 250 employees to 200.

Dead Rising 4 originally launched for Xbox One and PC in 2016, before making its way to PlayStation 4 in 2017. The spokesperson also reaffirmed that the studio is "dedicated to its flagship Dead Rising series".

But as part of the cuts an unannounced game, said to be set in alternate timeline has been cancelled.
