The LinkedIn CV of an animation studio rigging supervisor has name-dropped Dead Rising 3.

The profile of Jeremie Passerin lists the Capcom sequel under projects worked on in 2012, for which Passerin was apparently a rigger for a "game cinematic".

This breaks a year-long silence on the title, with nothing having been heard of it since Capcom seemingly teased a third game in December 2011.

Shortly prior to that teaser, Capcom had told CVG that Dead Rising 3 is likely to directly continue the narrative of its hugely successful predecessor, and that another digital 'prologue' is all but guaranteed.

Rumours went on to suggest that the third game would be set in the fictional city of Los Perdidos, in California. Reports also claimed the game would star a new protagonist, auto mechanic Rick, who's locked down in the city under martial law following the zombie outbreak.
