press release on the Starbreeze website announces
a delay to OVERKILL's
The Walking Dead
, saying the first-person shooter based on the zombie IP is
now expected in the second half of next year (thanks
). Their site offers both Swedish and English, but for some reason this
announcement is only on the Swedish side, so we're relying on a rough machine
translation for this English version:
