Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and DR2: Off the Record to Grace Current Gen

By Kelly Packard,
This could be the year Dead Rising fans have been dreaming of. With Dead Rising 4 on the horizon, and now the confirmation of Dead Rising (Xbox 360), Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360) and Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (Xbox 360) coming to current-gen, this is shaping up to be a nice year to ride a tricycle through a horde of zombies at the Willamette Mall.

But let's back it up a bit — the Dead Rising series has been confirmed for Xbox One? What!? Well, at the moment it has merely been "confirmed" and not yet officially announced by Capcom. Earlier this week, PS4 trophies for the original Dead Rising popped up online. Eurogamer asked Capcom what the deal was... and they actually responded.

"Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In addition, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4. We will have more news to share soon," the Capcom representative told Eurogamer.

What capacity the games will be released in is something we'll just have to wait to find out. Will they be turned into a collection, like so many remastered titles before them? Or will they get the Resident Evil treatment, another Capcom series, and be shelled out one at a time over the course of several months? As Capcom put it, they'll "have more news to share soon," so prepare your pre-orders, Dead Rising fans.
