Announced in late 2014, OVERKILL’s THE WALKIG DEAD was originally intended to be the ultimate TWD gaming experience. Unfortunately after many delays and a disastrous launch on PC, Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment has outright CANCELED the project, as it will now never see the light of day on consoles.

Earlier today, Skybound Entertainment dropped this bombshell via their official site:

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 FPS. 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.

There you have it. The long journey for OVERKILL’S THE WALKING DEAD has to come an end. One can only wonder what the future is for the TWD IP, with the Telltale series coming to an end as well.
