Capcom COO David Reeves has revealed that the storyline of Dead Rising 2
is likely to be continued in Dead Rising 3
, and that digital episodes will almost certainly be released to bridge the link between the two games. In an interview with CVG
, Reeves said:
"Obviously, with all of that success on Dead Rising 2, it makes sense to move onto Dead Rising 3. I think that [developer Blue Castle Games] may extend it by bringing in new characters and new interactions, or bring back others from before.
The idea would be that we'll bring digital content to bridge a link between DR2 and DR3. It's a bit like an online game in that way - a continuous story. I don't want to say episodic, but I think you'll be find there'll be scriptwriters coming in to [continue the story]."
Capcom successfully released a 'prologue' to DR2
, titled Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
, which introduced players to the new features of the game. Case Zero
was downloaded over 500,000 times. An 'epilogue', titled Dead Rising 2: Case West
, was also announced in September
, with the original protagonist Frank West returning to the narrative.Dead Rising 2: Case West
has not got a confirmed release date yet.
