UPDATE 2: Here’s what a Microsoft rep said in an email:

“Dead Rising 3” will launch exclusively for Xbox One on Nov. 22. We have no plans to release the game on Xbox 360.

UPDATE:  Microsoft’s Major Nelson just debunked what our guy on the floor heard by saying:

Reports from #eurogamer that Dead Rising 3 will launch on Xbox 360 are false. It’s an Xbox One exclusive – no plans for 360

We’ll clarify with the dev doing the presentation, as well as our people at Eurogamer at what really happened.

Original Story:

Up until now, we thought that Dead Rising 3 would be an Xbox One-exclusive game that would see the light of day when the Xbox One launches later this fall. Well, over at Eurogamer Expo, it looks like that assumption has been completely debunked.

During a Dead Rising 3 presentation, we have confirmed that Dead Rising 3 will also launch on the Xbox 360. We still don’t know when that will be, and while we’re attempting to get some form of confirmation, we will keep you updated with the latest from Eurogamer Expo.

    Kinda weird if true because it was originally intended to be an Xbox 360 game, but they were having trouble with the older hardware, so it was moved to the Xbox One. I will wait for official confirmation, but I already have the Xbox One version pre-ordered, which will no doubt be far superior, I mean no load times!

  • Sheldon Prescott

    I don’t understand how this is possible. How can current gen hardware run that game? How will all those zombies get on screen? Wouldn’t that make Xbox 360 explode?

      short answer it can’t. rumor debunked.

    Capcom is broke, if they can sell DR3 on the 360, which is going to have a user base that’s 6-8x larger than the XBO at launch or even in the first year, they’d be crazy not too. I’m not buying an XBO, but if a decent version of DR3 came to the 360, I would probably pick it up just to see what it is.

    Anyone who believes the PR spin machine for XBO sales that DR3 will never come to another platform is living in their own little console warrior dream world. Not even saying this 360 rumor is true, but once the smoke has died down and the XBO version is selling for $15 used at Gamestop, Capcom will drop Dead Rising 3: Super Remix Ultra for XBO/PS4/PC pretty quick.

    Same goes for Deep Down as a PS4 exclusive. If MS policy changes regarding F2P titles on the XBO, you can bet your ass that game will come to the XBO and probably the PC down the road.

    People need to stop believing Capcom’s bullshit is mostly what I’m saying.

    If you were awaiting for confirmation, how can you say you had already confirmed the game will come out on 360 too? :P

    You should use the word “confirm” sparingly, people takes it really seriously and as a fact when they read that.

      They were talking about when it will come out, they had already confirmed that it will come out on the Xbox360..or though they thought

  • Greg DeLacy

    why do I think this site heard the dev talking about “when it was originally being developed on the xbox 360″ for “its being developed for the xbox 360″.

    Reports from #eurogamer that Dead Rising 3 will launch on Xbox 360 are false. It’s an Xbox One exclusive – no plans for 360
