Overkill's The Walking Dead Pushed Back To Second Half Of 2018


Starbreeze Studios and Skybound Entertainment have been working on a project with developer Overkill set in The Walking Dead universe, but the publishers have just announced the title has been pushed back from its original 2017 release date into 2018. Hopefully we'll get a better idea of how the game's development is coming along then.

Overkill's The Walking Dead was announced in 2014 with a 2016 release window.

"We, together with the developer of Overkill's The Walking Dead, chose to extend the production schedule to pursue our original vision a step further and so that the title will reach its full potential". Helpfully, Google's auto-translate feature is around to convert the text into something resembling English, the gist being that the delay will allow the game to "reach its full potential".

Starbreeze and Ovekill are no strangers to the world of first-person shooters, having previously worked on the hugely successful Payday 2.

Thankfully, The Walking Dead doesn't appear to be losing steam any time soon.

So excited was series creator Robert Kirkman by the game that he was quoted as saying, "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". Starstream will be shown via Starbreeze's official Twitch page at 12 PM EST on May 10, so check it out if you can, and stay tuned to Hardcore Gamer for any notable reveals from the event.
