At E3 this year, we were greeted by the return of Dead Rising. Dead Rising 4 was leaked ahead of the Xbox conference, and when it debuted at the show, confetti fell from the ceiling like snow, while a Christmas song played over the montage of gameplay. Hilarious stuff.
However, it seems that despite being revealed at the Xbox media briefing, it will not remain an Xbox or Microsoft exclusive like the launch title Dead Rising 3.
“‘Dead Rising 4′ on Xbox One is developed by Capcom and will be published in partnership with Microsoft. Fans will be able to play ‘Dead Rising 4′ first on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC this December,” said Microsoft. “It will remain a Windows 10 exclusive for the first 90 days and console exclusive on Xbox One for one year.
“We’ve had a close and longstanding relationship with Capcom including the launch of Dead Rising as an Xbox 360 exclusive and Dead Rising 3 as an Xbox One exclusive. We’re thrilled to partner with Capcom once again to help bring their ambitious vision for Dead Rising 4 to life.”
In saying this, it looks like Dead Rising 4 may be able to release on Steam after 90 days exclusivity on Windows 10, and much like Rise of the Tomb Raider, could appear on the PlayStation 4 or even a Nintendo platform after a full year on the shelves.
Dead Rising 4 will be lumbering on PC and Xbox One on December 6th this year.
