Starbreeze Studios have today announced a publishing agreement with 505 Games to bring the PC, PS4 and Xbox One version of Overkill's The Walking Dead to the consoles.
The Walking Dead is based on the hugely popular The Walking Dead-series created by Robert Kirkman and is currently under development by Overkill. The game will deliver a completely new co-op experience to The Walking Dead-universe, exploring new characters and storylines.
“Partnering with 505 Games partner with us on the console publishing for 'The Walking Dead’ will streamline the distribution and marketing of the title in the traditional space and on the digital console marketplace. Having worked together before on the successful PayDay-franchise, we are certain this will be a fruitful collaboration.” said Bo Andersson Klint, CEO of Starbreeze Studios.
“In the last few years Starbreeze has demonstrated an incredible capability for not only delivering great games but doing so profitably.” Raphael Galante, CEO of Digital Bros commented “We believe that ‘The Walking Dead’ represents a huge opportunity to duplicate, even eclipse the success PayDay 2 has enjoyed in the last few years by leveraging the existing business relationship between our two companies.”
The Walking Dead is slated for a 2016 release and will release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
