GameSpot has collected a statement from Capcom concerning Dead Rising 4. First announced during Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, Capcom has now confirmed it is a timed exclusive. It will be available only on Xbox Ones for one year, and it will be a Windows 10 exclusive for 90 days.
Here’s the official Dead Rising 4 statement from a Capcom representative that was given to GameSpot.
"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. 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."
As a refresher, the Dead Rising series has a history of exclusivity arrangements. The original Dead Rising was only on the Xbox 360, while the Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop remake was a Nintendo Wii game. Dead Rising 3 was released for the Xbox One and Windows PCs. Only Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record were immediately multiplatform games, available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PCs.
Dead Rising 4 will come to the Xbox One and Windows in 2016.
