Starbreeze Studios have recently announced that one of their own studios, OVERKILL, are working on a new Walking Dead game, based on the series of the same name, created by Robert Kirkman. It will simply be titled ‘OVERKILLS’s The Walking Dead‘
It is not a sequel, nor does it have any ties to the 2013 release ‘The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct‘ as OVERKILL developers of heist sim Payday 2, are set to “deliver a completely new co-op experience to The Walking Dead universe, exploring new characters and storylines.”
Starbreeze CEO, Andersson Klint has confirmed that it will be a first-person shooter co-op game and has stated that “It will be gameplay focused, ferocious and bring chaos to the traditional industry model – from us developers straight to you. This time it’s big – don’t walk alone.”
It’s all sounding very promising, and as a big fan of the TV series and of course the brilliant Telltale games, this could be one to keep an eye out for. Although prepare to keep it out for a while, as it has been slated for a 2016 release and with no platforms currently confirmed.
