Dead Rising 4 PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Dead Rising's never really felt like a PlayStation franchise. The original launched too early for the PlayStation 3, despite it getting "ported" to the Nintendo Wii. Dead Rising 2 and spin-off Off the Record did hit Sony's system, but the game's prequel episodes were exclusive to the Xbox 360. And then, of course, Dead Rising 3 launched as an Xbox One exclusive.

So, it's unlikely that Dead Rising 4 will deploy on the PlayStation 4, but we're reporting on this leak just in case. Artwork from the forthcoming sequel has arrived online, with no platforms attached. It looks like the title will feature photographer Frank West again, and according to some online murmurs, is a re-imagining of the original release.

Everything that we've heard on the grapevine suggests that this one is coming to the Xbox One and Windows 10 only, but Capcom's earnings reports pointed to an unannounced title that it expects to move two million units, which may hint at some multiformat hopes after all. Indeed, that's a pretty big number for an exclusive – although it famously predicted the same for Street Fighter V.
