Dead Rising 4 was revealed in the form of a gameplay trailer at the E3 2016 press conference of Microsoft. The game was confirmed to be a Windows 10 and Xbox One exclusive at that time, but it appears that this could be another timed exclusivity deal here, just as it was the case with Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Now that E3 2016 is officially over, Microsoft has confirmed the timed exclusivity deal for Dead Rising 4, which makes it 90 days exclusive to Windows 10 hinting at a potential Steam release in March or April, and 1 year console exclusive for the Xbox One, which could point towards a Holiday 2017 release for the PS4.
