Larry Hryb, who goes by the alias of Major Nelson, has posted a clarification in regards to a recent rumor that suggests “Dead Rising 3” will be a cross-generation release for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms. As reported by Pixel Enemy on Sept. 27, the open-world survival-horror video game was allegedly announced for Microsoft’s current-generation console during a presentation that took place during the Eurogamer Expo.
Larry Hryb debunked the rumor by confirming that “Dead Rising 3” will remain exclusive to the Xbox One. He also disclosed that they have no plans to bring the sequel to the Xbox 360. You can find a batch of screenshots from the third main “Dead Rising” installment in the slideshow near the top of this article and his full comment on the rumor below (courtesy of Pixel Enemy):
Reports from [Eurogamer Expo] that Dead Rising 3 will launch on Xbox 360 are false. It's an Xbox One exclusive - no plans for 360
“Dead Rising 3” was first announced at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo during Microsoft’s press conference. The sequel is being developed by the same Capcom Vancouver studio that previously worked on “Dead Rising 2” and “Dead Rising 2: Off the Record” for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 gaming platforms.
The publishing aspect of the release for the series has changed compared to the prior titles in the series, however. Instead of Capcom, Microsoft Studios will be distributing “Dead Rising 3” when the sequel launches alongside the Xbox One next-generation system later this year on Nov. 22.
