The Dead Rising series has been MIA for a while now. The last game in the series was Dead Rising 4 which was released back in 2016. Since then, Capcom has seemingly abandoned the IP but according to a new leak, the studio did have a new game in development which was cancelled. The cancelled game was reportedly called, Dead Rising: Dia De Los Muertos and by the look of things, it was actually quite far in development too.
The leak comes from a Reddit user named ThenathanNS who spotted the gameplay footage on a developer’s public profile. The profile listing is among other developers who used to work for Capcom Vancouver. This leak comes from a Technical Level Designer on Dead Rising: Dia De Los Muertos.

The game seemingly sees Chuck Green return to the game alongside two other playable characters. It also took place in a Mexican-inspired city. It seems that Capcom abandoned development on Dead Rising: Dia De Los Muertos sometime after 2017. The gameplay video is dated October 2017 and looked quite far into development at the time.
One video tackles the game’s looting system and sees the player running around the world opening boxes and cabinets. There’s also another video showcasing general gameplay including combat and shooting. The player picks up all sorts of objects and hits zombies with them. There’s even a quick glimpse at a fire-breathing zombie. One clip also includes a boss fight. The player is seen fighting a large man with a mechanical arm.
Of course, the chances of us ever playing this Dead Rising: Dia De Los Muertos are quite low. Chances are, this game has been completely scrapped. We don’t know if Capcom will ever revive it or whether or not the studio is working on something new.
