THE WALKING DEAD writer, Robert Kirkman, announced on Steam today that there is a new Walking Dead game coming in 2016. Kirkman and Skybound have partnered with Starbreeze and Overkill, makers of Payday 2 for this new game, entitled "Overkill's The Walking Dead." Kirkman had this to say on the Steam Community site:
I’m a huge fan of what OVERKILL and Starbreeze have been able to do with PAYDAY 2. It’s just an amazing co-operative game and I’m excited to be able to announce that Skybound is partnering with OVERKILL to make a Walking Dead game. I’m happy to say that it’s the co-op game that all of the Walking Dead fans have been waiting for.
As of now, platforms have not been announced yet. Here's some known details about what fans can expect from this game in the future.
OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead is a co-op first person shooter with elements of action, role-playing, survival horror and stealth, that invites players to explore the hugely popular The Walking Dead universe, where they will play the role of survivors fending for themselves in a post-apocalyptic world dominated by flesh-eating walkers. In 2016 Washington will fall - what will you do?
