Skybound Entertainment have announced that Overkill’s The Walking Dead has been cancelled. The company released the following statement:
As of today, we have terminated our contract with Starbreeze Studios and will discontinue all efforts on Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Our creators and their stories are the core of Skybound, and since 2014 we have worked hard to expand the world of The Walking Dead into an exceptional co-op action first-person shooter. We did our best to work with Starbreeze and resolve many issues that we saw with the game, but ultimately Overkill’s The Walking Dead did not meet our standards, nor is it the quality that we were promised. We are exceedingly sorry to our fans and share their disappointment in the game. We remain dedicated to providing our fans with the most premium quality content we can offer, and will continue to look for alternative video game options for the IP.
The game was in production for Playstation 4 and Xbox One, but did receive a release for PC in November 2018. It’s currently unknown how this will effect those who purchased the Deluxe Edition on PC.
