Servers for Puzzle Fighter will continue to operate for a few more weeks after the title is de-listed, but they will be shut down on July 31, after which point the game will no longer be playable. For now, we can appreciate the dedication Capcom has chose to put towards improving their Dead Rising franchise.

This could basically mean that a new Dead Rising, presumably Dead Rising 5, is now under development. It is on July 1st when the game will be removed from app stores.

"Capcom Vancouver has undergone a restructure which has impacted approximately 30% of the studio, as part of its regular periodic assessment of upcoming projects and overall studio goals", the company later said in a statement while pledging support for both Puzzle Fighter and Dead Rising.

After being blown out in Game 1, Popovich's squad hung around in Game 2, even taking a six-point lead into halftime on the road. And all in all, Steve Kerr's Warriors are slowly and surely maturing into those great Tim Duncan Spurs teams of yesteryear.

A lot of the Puzzle Fighter fans are reluctant in accepting the news, pleading with Capcom to rethink their decision. Today, they have chose to sunset the mobile game in order to focus more on their Dead Rising franchise.

All in-app purchases will be disabled on Monday, April 23. In addition, the previous Classic Mode special limited event will be available at all times up until the server closure. The game's soundtrack will also be available to stream and listen to via SoundCloud.

Although Capcom is pulling the plug on Puzzle Fighter, it certainly doesn't look like the developer is giving up on Dead Rising anytime soon. Wily, and Ada Wong-as well as the Darminor and Uroboros Laboratory stages-are being made available for free.
