The "Dead Rising," "Dead Rising 2" and "Dead Rising 2: Off the Record" remasters are reportedly arriving in September, according to a leak.

The "Dead Rising" remastered bundle is listed to have a Sept. 13 release date in the Xbox Store, Game Informer discovered. The pack was previously leaked prior to an announcement from Capcom, but the company has since confirmed that it is coming to current-generation consoles soon.

"Capcom will be bringing 'Dead Rising' to Xbox One, PS4 and PC," the publisher told the publication. "In addition, 'Dead Rising 2' and 'Dead Rising 2: Off the Record' will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4. We will have more news to share soon."

Game Informer also reached out to Capcom regarding the release date and surprisingly, the latter did not dismiss the information as rumor. However, the representative from Capcom revealed that the date is just a placeholder and may change any time. He also said that they will make a formal announcement regarding the launch date soon.

The Xbox Store also revealed the first look at the "Dead Rising" remasters via a set of screenshots from each of the games' listing ("Dead Rising," "Dead Rising 2" and "DR2: Off the Record"). The screenshots showcase the improved graphics and additional details that players will get to experience soon. 

Furthermore, the Xbox Store also revealed that the remasters are not being helmed by Capcom, but rather by the Polish studio QLOC and Mercernary Technology, IGN reported. QLOC is the same team that worked on the PlayStation 4 (PS4), Xbox One and PC ports of "DmC: Devil May Cry" and now it is responsible for porting "Dead Rising." "Dead Rising 2" and "Dead Rising 2: Off the Record" current-generation ports are carried out by Mercenary, the studio behind "God of War 3" remastered version.

"Dead Rising," "Dead Rising 2" and "Dead Rising 2: Off the Record" are set to be released on PS4 and Xbox One.
