Wasn't that news about Dead Rising 2 featuring multiplayer just great? Well, sorry, it turns out it may well have been wrong, with the lady responsible for the statement now issuing a correction.
It was Laura Scholl (from tech company mental mill, who are helping with the game) who, last week, said Dead Rising 2 could feature up to 6000 zombies on screen at any one time during "multiplayer". Turns out that was a slip of the tongue, and she meant to say "multiplatform".
In my 'During the Dead Rising 2' presentation at GDC this past Friday, while I was describing how Blue Castle is using mental mill technology in character development, I mistakenly referred to the game as multiplayer instead of multiplatform. I apologize for the confusion.
Then again, don't be too bummed. This isn't a denial that the game features multiplayer, just a denial that she said anything about it at GDC.
