Back in 2014, we informed you about OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead FPS title. And while the game was planned for a 2016 release, Starbreeze Studios revealed that the game has been delayed until the second half of 2017.
Starbreeze claimed that it has received a $40 million investment by Korean gaming company Smilegate, something that will allow Starbreeze to release both Payday 2 and The Walking Dead on Smilegate’s platform in Asia. In addition, a new co-op FPS based on the Crossfire franchise will be developed thanks to this investment.
As Starbreeze stated:
“Overkill’s The Walking Dead will be expanded with more content where an Asian version will be developed for simultaneous launch with the Western version. To maximize the new opportunities, Starbreeze, 505 Games and Skybound have decided to release the game in all markets during the second half of 2017. The partners are convinced this will pave the way to success, maximize revenues and cement it as a tent pole product for the next decade to come.”
And that is that.
