Capcom cuts workforce at Dead Rising 2 studio

Vacancies still available at Vancouver group

Capcom has axed about twenty staff at the Dead Rising 2 studio Capcom Vancouver.


Following early unconfirmed rumors, Capcom Vancouver has now confirmed it has laid off 7 per cent of its staff. That equates to about twenty people.

The studio followed the announcement with a Tweet confirming that it is still "growing and aggressively seeking great talent", with several positions advertised on its website.

The news follows lay-offs in other major Canadian development studios including Radical Entertainment (Prototype 2) and Slant Six (RE: Operation Raccoon City).
