No, you are not dreaming, Dead Rising 4 could very well be making its gory way to PS4 and Steam as early as 2017.
Dead Rising 4 was met with a winning roar when announced at E3 this year. The classic zombie stomper series is known worldwide for being one of the most creative and fun open world horror games around.
The Dead Rising series has long been an Xbox exclusive and Dead Rising 4 was no different. Capcom revealed earlier this week that Dead Rising 4 will launch exclusive to Xbox One on December 6 of this year.
The new game is set to feature the return of series legend Frank West and aims to be kookier than ever. From Candy Cane crossbows to Gingerbread man claymores Dead Rising 4 will be as bonkers as ever.
It seems now however that it will not only be the Xbox fans that will get to enjoy this new edition. According to a recent statement from Microsoft it seems that for the first time ever things are about to change
Microsoft has said that Dead Rising 4 could very well be making its way to both PlayStation and Steam networks. Specifically it is said that plans are for Dead Rising 4 to make its way to Steam after just 90 days of Xbox exclusivity and to PlayStation 4 after one year of console exclusivity.
"'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."
This doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, we saw similar with the latest Tomb Raider game. Tomb Raider: Rise of the Tomb Raider launched as an Xbox exclusive, it then later launched on PC and is now due for PS4 release this holiday.
Dead Rising on PS4! Brilliant news for all action/horror adventure gamers out there. Dead Rising provides gamers with a totally unique approach to zombie horror and this news is guaranteed to go down well with PlayStation fans.
