Dead Rising 2 ships two million, developer buy ratified

Dead Rising 2, Capcom’s follow-up to Frank West’s romp through the Willamette Parkview Mall back in 2006, has shipped over two million copies worldwide, the publisher announced today.

The Chuck Greene-led sequel has helped the series as a whole past the four million mark, it’s also pointed out. Still “shippped” though.

The news is followed by another bit: Capcom’s acquisition of Vancouver-based developer Blue Castle Games — first announced at Tokyo Game Show in September — has been ratified by Canadian authorities. Blue Castle now goes by Capcom Game Studio Vancouver.
