Overkill’s “The Walking Dead” Video Game Gets Canceled


Overkill’s The Walking Dead is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but this is not going to happen anymore. Skybound Entertainment is the company who is in charge of The Walking Dead franchise and it announced that console players shouldn’t expect the game to arrive anytime soon. Not just that, but Skybound Entertainment also announced that the support for the PC version of the game is going to be discontinued.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead Has Been Canceled

“As of today, we have terminated our contract with Starbreeze Studios and will discontinue all efforts on OVERKILL’S THE WALKING DEAD. Our creators and their stories are the core of Skybound, and since 2014 we have worked hard to expand the world of The Walking Dead into an exceptional Co-op Action FPS. We did our best to work with Starbreeze and resolve many issues that we saw with the game, but ultimately OVERKILL’S THE WALKING DEAD did not meet our standards nor is it the quality that we were promised. We are exceedingly sorry to our fans and share their disappointment in the game. We remain dedicated to providing our fans with the most premium quality content we can offer and will continue to look for alternative video game options for the IP,” said Skybound Entertainment.

Alternative Video Game Options

From the looks of it, Skybound Entertainment doesn’t feel like Overkill’s The Walking Dead is a good enough game to represent the franchise. On the bright side of things, Skybound Entertainment did say that they are not giving up on the idea of creating another video game that is based off The Walking Dead universe. However, it’s going to take at least two years before we even hear news on the new game since Skybound Entertainment needs to find someone to develop it first.
