As I said, it’s been a long while since Dead Rising 3 has popped up on the interwebs, but that may not be the case for much longer. A recent resume update from Jeremie Passerin on his LinkedIn profile (discovered by All Games Beta) hints that a trailer for DR3 is coming soon. Jeremie Passerin is a rigging supervisor for Blur Studio, a company that has created CGI trailers for many games including Dishonored and even those bad-ass trailers for The Old Republic.
Anyway, Passerin’s resume says he’s been working for Blur for the last year and lists Dead Rising 3 as one of the projects he’s been working on (it looks as though he’s since removed that from the profile, which may just as well have confirmed it). I’ve got it listed as a rumor for now, because without an official confirmation from Capcom, I hate to call it anything else.
My bet though, is this is legit and we’ll be seeing an official announcement and this trailer sometime in the near future. Hopefully, it’s the very near future! Dead Rising 2 and it’s offshoot, Off the Record, have been out for quite some time now, and with a franchise that still has steam left in it, I’m sort of surprised we haven’t heard more from DR3 by now. We’ll keep you updated as more news comes.
