Capcom Vancouver, the studio responsible for developing the Dead Rising series since Dead Rising 2, has shut down and ended a number of undisclosed projects.

Capcom Vancouver was the primary developer for Dead Rising after Dead Rising 2 and also released Puzzle Fighter for iOS that was later shut down to dedicate resources for the Dead Rising series.

Capcom Vancouver was founded in 2005 and was the main outlet for the Dead Rising series. The studio was hit with layouts in February with 30% of its staff being let go.

Capcom is expected to lose around $40 million due to the closure.
