Capcom Cuts Staff, Game, and Dead Rising Scope?

Kotaku reports an unconfirmed rumor of layoffs at Capcom Vancouver, attributing the news to "a person familiar with the company as well as various posts on social media." Their source tells them that this will affect the scope of an unannounced upcoming Dead Rising game, which they say "had been over-scoped and under-staffed." They also say another unannounced game was cancelled along the way:

Capcom has laid off a significant number of staff in its Vancouver office as part of a shift that saw the company cancel an unannounced project and cut scope on the next Dead Rising, according to a person familiar with the company as well as various posts on social media.

The source, who spoke anonymously so as not to risk their career, said around 50 people were laid off as part of a reorganization aimed to streamline the company and wrangle the next Dead Rising, which had been over-scoped and under-staffed (as many video games are).
