Microsoft didn't use the term "exclusive" when it announced Dead Rising 4 for the Xbox One and Windows 10 this week, prompting us to ponder whether it would release on the PlayStation 4. However, the chatter coming out of E3 2016 was that the Redmond firm was publishing the game, and so we assumed that a Steam release may be on the cards and nothing more.
But there's talk now that the title's coming to the PS4, as apparently the Xbox maker's negotiated a one year exclusivity deal for the title. That's according to game journalist Ryan Brown, who quoted a Capcom representative on the E3 2016 show floor. Capcom Vancouver, the team behind the release, also later said that "you'll be able to play it first on Xbox One and Windows 10".
So, what does all this mean? Well, probably that the festive zombie flattener will be launching on Sony's new-gen format next holiday, but we'll still check in with Capcom to find out for sure. This whole scenario stinks of Rise of the Tomb Raider, really, doesn't it? We suppose the difference is that this is a franchise no one cares about, hence the lack of interest in investigating its "exclusivity".
