Dead Rising 2: Not at E3

Dead Rising 2: Not at E3
Buy Dead Rising 2 from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

Earlier this week we announced a list of Capcom games that were supposed to be shown off this E3. Dead Rising 2 was among them, although it was supposed to be there for a private showing only. Now, unfortunately, it's come out that Capcom will not be showcasing Dead Rising 2 at E3.

The reason? Oddly enough, it's the Swine Flu. The Japanese government has advised all of its citizens to halt their plans for international travel until worries about the overblown illness die down. Capcom's Japanese offices evidently agree with their government's reasoning; no one at Capcom Japan will be visiting E3 this year.

Of course, Capcom has U.S. and Canadian branches as well, and they'll be debuting the rest of Capcom's showcase list. However, due to the early stage of development Dead Rising 2 is in, the developers aren't comfortable with having anyone but Keiji Inafune, the game's executive producer, lead the demo.

"“Dead Rising 2 is the only game we won’t be able to showcase at E3, because it’s at an early stage of development and the team is not comfortable having anyone else demo the code.” said Chris Kramer, a Senior Director at Capcom.

Capcom still has a great line-up of games for E3 2009, and the loss of Dead Rising 2 shouldn't be too much of an annoyance. We've still got Street Fighter IV, Bionic Commando, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and a bunch of other new titles to get excited about.
