Even if Dead Rising 2 has barely been released, Capcom, its publisher is looking to the future, and confirms that work on Dead Rising 3 has already begun at Blue Castle Games, the studio responsible for the sequel.
According to Capcom's Chief Operating Officer, David Reeves, Dead Rising 3 will continue the story from the second game, and will receive digital content, in the form of prequels or sequels, just like Dead Rising 2.
This digital content will bridge the two games, and offer some sort of overall story for the whole franchise.
"Obviously, with all of that success on Dead Rising 2, it makes sense to move onto Dead Rising 3," said Reeves. "I think that they [developer Blue Castle Games] may extend it by bringing in new characters and new interactions, or bring back others from before.
"The idea would be that we'll bring digital content to bridge a link between DR2 and DR3. It's a bit like an online game in that way - a continuous story. I don't want to say episodic, but I think you'll be find there'll be scriptwriters coming in to [continue the story]."
For those not familiar with Capcom's zombie-killing franchise, Dead Rising 2
saw a special downloadable prequel, Dead Rising: Case Zero
, released ahead of the launch of the full pledged game.
The title enjoyed a huge amount of success, even if it was priced at $5, and went on to sell over 500,000 copies.
A second digital release, Dead Rising: Case West, will also be launched later this year, which will see the protagonist of Dead Rising 2, Chuck Green, team up with the hero of Dead Rising 1, Frank West.
A release date has yet to be revealed for Case West, but expect it to once more shatter digital sales records, seeing as how Dead Rising 2 sold a lot of units, and because Frank West has lots of fans.

Case West and Case Zero has not came out on PS3 y is that
|Comment #3.1 by: Andrei Dobra on 24 Mar 2011, 13:25 GMT|
Hey there, Case Zero and Case West won't appear for the PlayStation 3 as Capcom had an agreement with Microsoft for Xbox 360 exclusivity. That deal may expire, but it doesn't look that way anytime soon.

Too bad it would be nice to see everything upgraded on the superior PS3, I hope they don't make the same mistake with Dead Rising 3

they need ta stop with the weapon thing i wish that the paddle saw was infinete
|Comment #4.1 by: wazzup on 29 Mar 2011, 12:11 GMT|
They can't do that because they don't want you to have an extremely powerful weapon the entire game, that would be unfair.
|Comment #4.2 by: Your biggest fan on 14 Apr 2011, 20:19 GMT|
Yeah it stinks
|Comment #5 by: cj on 03 Apr 2011, 20:38 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Capcom needs to at least mention a cure in DR3's story, I think it would make it more interesting
|Comment #5.1 by: Dragyn-Hart on 06 Apr 2011, 01:54 GMT|
Capcom already mentioned a cure in Dead Rising 2-Case West.
|Comment #5.2 by: Beefy Bob on 14 Apr 2011, 20:25 GMT|
I agree with Wazzup the weapnon breakage thing SUCKS HORRIBLY
|Comment #6 by: tin116 on 08 Apr 2011, 04:22 UTC|| reply to this comment|

do any of you know how to kill 53,000 and 72,000 zombies the easiest and the fastest way?

|Comment #8.3 by: geeeezzzzyyyyy on 07 Jun 2011, 08:58 GMT|
get in a car an waste an hour or so of your life running over zombies
|Comment #8.4 by: DeathLord_ on 14 Oct 2011, 23:46 GMT|
Get the hummer outside and do a rampage outside, and then go inside a building and back out to reset all the zombies and do it all over again, takes awhile (more then an hour)
|Comment #9 by: Xxghost tactics on 14 May 2011, 14:06 UTC|| reply to this comment|
next dead rising should be in japan because i would like fighting zombies in an area that is huge and can walk on tall buildings maybe get a helicopter and i would also make it if you went to far in the helicopter military would shoot you down and im also looking forward to assassins creed 4
|Comment #10 by: zombie killah on 16 May 2011, 19:14 UTC|| reply to this comment|
ya i could go for another dead rising i think that would be preety cool id bye it
|Comment #11 by: WolverineRob on 18 May 2011, 15:42 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I think that the Dead Rising Series is awesome but I think that there needs to be an online function like the entire United States is infected and you could travel to different parts of the US trying to find a cure or something or you could just try to sit back and survive while interacting with other people online. A Zombie killing MMO with safe areas.
|Comment #11.1 by: geeeezzzzyyyyy on 07 Jun 2011, 08:59 GMT|
i AGREE IT SHOULD BE MORE OPEN ENDED WITH MORE OPTIONS FOR YOUR CHARACTER BESIDES A SMALL PLAY AREA LIKE THE MALL AND VEGAS STRIP i WANT A whole city and im tired of the * time limits already
|Comment #12 by: Menasay on 30 May 2011, 11:42 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I can't wait for them to release DR3 stuff. It'll be awesome, they need to make it more mature.
|Comment #12.1 by: keyblade wielder on 31 May 2011, 21:27 GMT|
i think if it was more mature it'd pretty much suck and get depressing now would it?
|Comment #12.2 by: prodage on 02 Jun 2011, 23:15 GMT|

Now halo 3 isn't mature...........
10 million fans
40 million copys sold
Dont get me started on all of them combined
|Comment #13 by: prodage on 02 Jun 2011, 23:14 UTC|| reply to this comment|
dude they shud bring back chuck he,s better than frank
|Comment #13.1 by: Dead Gears Row on 25 Jun 2011, 00:07 GMT|
Chuck may have a better story line than Frank but Frank has brought the fun and humor in the series. Chuck is just too dramatic with Katey and doesnt have the cocky attitude needed for the game, i would love if Dead Rising 3 had both characters but you got to pick which one you wanted instead of player 1 as Chuck and player 2 as Frank or vice versa.
|Comment #14 by: yo yo on 09 Jun 2011, 22:30 UTC|| reply to this comment|
i hope chuck will find acure for his daughter and i hope frank will save isabela and they will fall in love
|Comment #15 by: Xxghost tactics on 12 Jun 2011, 05:50 UTC|| reply to this comment|
no isabelle is cheating with chuck LOL
|Comment #18 by: zach3121 on 03 Jul 2011, 02:16 UTC|| reply to this comment|
i just hope they make it so you can have a choice to save the psychopaths instead of just kill them
|Comment #19 by: play dummy (xbox live name) on 04 Jul 2011, 22:08 UTC|| reply to this comment|
i think they should have a survival mode online to were you can be any survivor from the game that you had to find and go around and survive as long as you can
|Comment #19.1 by: Goliath210 on 11 Jul 2011, 15:02 GMT|
Yeah... That would be pretty awsome! They could have a hunger bar, and a hardcore mode where you have to survive a gas zombie apacolapes. I love how dr2 went from easy to kill, slow to kill zombies... to fast, ferocious, extremely dangeroes zombies in a matter of minutes!
|Comment #20 by: 12 on 05 Jul 2011, 22:03 UTC|| reply to this comment|
i wish they would bring back infinity mode so you can kill as many zombies as you want and no time limit also to have cheats or have items last longer
|Comment #20.1 by: blade on 15 Aug 2011, 17:28 GMT|
yeah it rocked and it would make the game alot better and make it so u can play it straight away and not have to complete overtime mode
|Comment #20.2 by: blade on 15 Aug 2011, 17:30 GMT|
yeah and so u can go on it straight away and not complete overtime mode to go on it
|Comment #20.3 by: kdog on 05 Sep 2011, 04:39 GMT|

|Comment #21 by: aaa on 20 Jul 2011, 20:45 UTC|| reply to this comment|
beter in third part of DR will be same hero as second part DR and magazines just nead to read to get
|Comment #22 by: Gamer2011 on 21 Jul 2011, 08:26 UTC|| reply to this comment|
They should have a co-op split screen with chuck green and frank west that would be epic, and continuing after the DLC map frank west.
|Comment #23 by: Gamer on 21 Jul 2011, 08:30 UTC|| reply to this comment|
They should make a Co-op Splitscreen for dead rising 3, return the 2 characters Frank West and Chuck Green and continuing it from Dead Rising 2 Case West storyline and bring it to a new level hoping they do that for the fans of this exciting game.
|Comment #23.1 by: Dead Rising Lover on 09 Aug 2012, 14:02 GMT|
Amen to that, I would LOVE to see the duo back together!!!

|Comment #27 by: init on 30 Aug 2011, 18:27 UTC|| reply to this comment|

|Comment #28 by: WantToplay on 31 Aug 2011, 01:17 UTC|| reply to this comment|
when will it come out and can we order in advance it to get cool stuff ?
|Comment #29 by: Phil on 31 Aug 2011, 02:46 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I have played all of the games dr1, dr2, dr2 case0, dr2 case west. I think dr3 should be about frank and chuck. No new characters. I think u shoud be able to chose frank or chuck to play as one of them. You could pick up from where case west left off or put it in the game and then go some where else. That would make sence to me if you did that.
|Comment #30 by: hijakiller on 04 Sep 2011, 12:45 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Make dead rising three online kinda like left for dead.
|Comment #31 by: Hell ya on 06 Oct 2011, 01:24 UTC|| reply to this comment|
They should have it so that there are thing like bridges you or it automatically
lift up and down the next one should be at a hospital.

Is Deadriseing Going To Be On PS3
|Comment #32.1 by: steve on 08 Nov 2011, 15:39 GMT|
probably. dr2 was on the ps3 and xbox 360. So dr3 has a good chance to be on both consoles knowing that this could be the last major dead rising game. (they could still release more dlc)
|Comment #33 by: MP on 25 Oct 2011, 19:16 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Good idea for the game so far but they have to make local co-op insead of online co-op because I want to play with my older brother at home. We both were mad when it was one player campain.
|Comment #34 by: Deadrising player on 30 Oct 2011, 01:05 UTC|| reply to this comment|
hope that the main character is frank west
|Comment #35 by: steve on 08 Nov 2011, 15:35 UTC|| reply to this comment|
yeah i cant wait for DR3. I hope that u can probably go outside wherever you are trapped. It would be nice if there was a new character plus chuck OR frank.
|Comment #36 by: logan on 29 Nov 2011, 22:50 UTC|| reply to this comment|
hopefully you make it where people can pick their character, because i didnt like chuck green
|Comment #37 by: Dusty on 22 Feb 2012, 16:31 UTC|| reply to this comment|
DR3 needs to have FRANK WEST not some other new guy for the story
|Comment #37.1 by: strangel on 19 Jul 2012, 16:05 GMT|
frank is in two games maybe more so if there going to use the same character they should use chuck or someone els
|Comment #38 by: non on 26 Mar 2012, 23:24 UTC|| reply to this comment|
DR3 should take place in a lab where the cure is
|Comment #39 by: Skullifreak on 24 May 2012, 00:34 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I hope when dead rising 3 comes out they will add skins to were you can be Chuck, Frank, and Rick. It will be much more fun.
|Comment #40 by: Project X on 02 Jun 2012, 01:22 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I think that the strong, fast zombies in Dead Rising 2 were interesting, although I'm not sure that's what I would want in the 3rd game. Oh, and agreeing with MP, they should let you do two player free roam and/or campaign. Finally, do something other than a mall, and Chuck Green rules!
|Comment #40.1 by: CodeBlack452 on 18 Jul 2012, 04:44 GMT|
DR3 should have the option if you want to be frank west or chuck green!
|Comment #41 by: Strangel on 17 Jul 2012, 19:52 UTC|| reply to this comment|
this looks like it would be very cool but will there be a different protagoist other then frank and chuck and even a different city post more on this page for my answer
|Comment #42 by: Dead Rising Lover on 09 Aug 2012, 13:56 UTC|| reply to this comment|
BRING BACK THE CHUCK AND FRANK DUO!!!
|Comment #42.1 by: i have all deadrising's on 26 Aug 2012, 00:26 GMT|

|Comment #43 by: zombie killer on 13 Sep 2012, 21:54 UTC|| reply to this comment|
if they make dead rising 3 you should play as Katey Greene and you live in LA
