Dead Rising 4 will present exclusively for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC in December, but now Microsoft confirmed that the upcoming zombie game is only a timed-exclusive and could eventually make its way to PS4 and Steam.
“‘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.”
Dead Rising 3 was exclusive to the Xbox One, until 10 months later when it released on PC. As part of a console-exclusivity deal with Microsoft, it never launched on PS4.
Capcom’s next open-world zombie game was officially revealed during Microsoft’s E3 press conference after multiple leaks. It marks the return of the original game’s protagonist and setting–you’ll once again play Frank West as he revisits Willamette, Colorado.
Another timed-exclusive is Rise of the Tomb Raider, which initially released on the Xbox One last year, followed by a PC release months later. It’s scheduled for a holiday 2016 release on PS4, though a specific date has not been confirmed.
