New, 10 comments

Developer Overkill's shooter based on The Walking Dead will be part of Starbreeze Studios' "significant presence" at E3 2015, according to a press release (PDF link) from Starbreeze.

Overkill and Starbreeze announced the game in August 2014 with a teaser trailer, a 2016 release window and the promise of working with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman to "create new characters, plots and story-arcs that will live in the ever expansive world of The Walking Dead graphic novel series." Today's announcement said that the game is "now in full production."

Robert Kirkman told Polygon in March that the upcoming game will be like Overkill's shooter franchise, Payday, but in a bigger world.

"I can say that it will be Payday-esque because [Starbreeze and Overkill] are currently doing Payday," Kirkman told us. "But I'm told it will be in a bigger world than Payday currently encompasses. They are going to be learning a lot of stuff from Payday that they will be incorporating into The Walking Dead game."
