New Walking Dead Game Announced

Recently, Starbreeze Studios announced that they, along with Skybound Entertainment, are working on a new project called OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead.

The new title will be based on the largely popular graphic novel, The Walking Dead. OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead will be a new co-op experience to this created universe while exploring new characters and storylines.

Robert Kirkman, CEO of Skybound Entertainment, said:

“From day one on this project it’s been clear to me that this is the Walking Dead co-op action game fans have been waiting for. I can’t wait for people to learn just what OVERKILL has been cooking up for this game. Skybound is always about breaking new ground and trying to find something unexpected in all endeavors and this game continues that tradition in grand style.”

While Skybound has not announced what system OTWD will be coming to, they let fans know to expect it in 2016.

My Opinion:

The Walking Dead universe can be very dark and gritty- filled will chaos and psychological thrills. With all these types of scenarios and ambiance, another game to explore these can’t hurt…..unless it’s a train wreck (I’m looking at you The Walking Dead: Killer Instincts). It’s at least two years out, so this is a big wait-and-see project.
