OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Game Announced

Starbreeze Studios announces a new The Walking Dead game in development at PAYDAY developer OVERKILL, the first project to come from a new long-term licensing partnership with Skybound Interactive for the zombie-infested IP. The co-op game is due in 2016 and will use a next-generation version of Starbreeze’s Diesel engine. Here's a first trailer from the project, and here's what they are announcing for now:

Starbreeze Studios unveils OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead
Starbreeze AB, an independent creator, publisher and distributor of computer and video games, today unveils its new project, OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead, based on the hugely popular The Walking Dead series created by Robert Kirkman.

OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio, will deliver a completely new co-op experience to The Walking Dead universe, exploring new characters and storylines.
“The collaboration between Starbreeze Studios and our partner Skybound Interactive will deliver something uniquely exciting for our millions of fans. We’re two independents joining forces to create the ultimate survival horror game. With Robert on the team, we will bring The Walking Dead into the world of first-person shooter co-op games.” says Bo Andersson Klint, CEO, Starbreeze AB. He continues, “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.”

“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. I can’t wait for people to learn just what OVERKILL has been cooking up for this game. Skybound is always about breaking new ground and trying to find something unexpected in all endeavors and this game continues that tradition in grand style.” says Robert Kirkman, CEO, Skybound Entertainment.

OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead will be powered by Starbreeze’s Diesel engine updated for the next generation. The title is set to release in 2016.
In 2016, Washington will fall. What will you do?
