Overkill Software’s The Walking Dead FPS Game Delay Moves Release Date
Starbreeze Studios, the publisher of the much beloved PayDay 2, surprised The Walking Dead fans in 2014 when they announced that they were working on their own video game adaptation of the zombie apocalypse universe that started in Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel series. This first-person shooter game to be developed by Overkill Software would differ from the currently ongoing Telltale Games series by focusing on action gameplay and its own set of new characters and storylines. The new The Walking Dead FPS game was scheduled to be released later this year, but the studio has now announced that the game will be delayed until the second half of next year.
The PayDay 2 publisher has made this official delay announcement on News.Cision.com, stating that the delay is meant to allow Overkill Software the time to properly help the game reach its full potential and make an unforgettable experience for fans of The Walking Dead. To help appease those upset by this delay, Starbreeze will be hosting a special streaming event on Twitch next Wednesday, May 10th which they have promised will provide more information about this upcoming game and insight into its development.
Dubbed Star Stream, this event will also show off PayDay 2, Psychonauts 2, System Shock 3, and Dead by Daylight. There will also be a streamed Veterans of the Industry panel that will host guests such as Tim Schafer, Warren Spector and more! What do you guys think?
