Capcom's Comical PR Response to Dead Rising 2 Rumors

It’s standard procedure to contact the public relations reps of videogame companies whenever you report on rumors; it’s simply how things work. It’s rare that you receive anything more than the standard “no comment” line, so imagine the surprise that CVG must have had when they got the following response from Capcom when questioned about the legitimacy of recent Dead Rising 2 rumors.

We don’t comment on speculation and rumour. And you know we don’t comment on speculation and rumour. So why are you asking me to comment on speculation and rumour?

I should think that our policy on speculation and rumour is fairly well known by now and as such, any request by you for me to comment on speculation and rumour will result in no comment. So no comment, because this is purely speculation and rumour.

And if you were hoping that Capcom’s secret game known as “Flock” was a Dead Rising sequel, it turns out that it’s simply not the case. That’s too bad, because a name like “Flock” seems appropriate when you’re talking about a game where your main form of gameplay comes in the form of annihilating swarms of zombies.

well look at it by his point of view if u knew your not to say anything on rumors that might be true or not and keep getting ask over and over and over again you would be a little sour too lol. anyway many devs say no comment or say it unture when later on in the year it turns out it was true.
