OVERKILL’s The Walking Dead Delayed Again

By Rebecca Smith, 10 months ago
OVERKILL's The Walking Dead hasn't been doing terribly well of late. The game launched to disappointing sales on PC, and the console version of the title was delayed until February 8th while the team worked on improvements. The situation got worse at the start of December when publisher Starbreeze filed for reconstruction, an attempt to raise further funding before the company ceased trading. It seems like all of these events have conspired against the console version of OVERKILL's The Walking Dead as the game has been delayed again, this time indefinitely.

The official statement is that the publisher is "currently evaluating and reviewing the performance of the game" on consoles. They have promised that "further information regarding the future release will be announced at a later date", but honestly, it doesn't sound encouraging.

It seems most Walking Dead games are fated to either kill the publisher or just be plain rubbish.
