This week, Overkill, the developers of the Payday games, will be launching a live video streaming of the upcoming title The Walking Dead. However, don’t get too excited, as you will have to wait more until the official release of the game.
The Walking Dead is delayed until 2018
Starbreeze Studios is the company which will launch the game, and they are not bringing good news for the fans. Although the live streaming will be available shortly, The Walking Death won’t see the market until the second half of 2018. Bo Andersson Klint, the CEO of the company, informed everybody on the reason of such a late release.
Overkill want to make the fans happy by bringing them a perfect game. Therefore, they decided to take more time to develop the game so that it could reach its full potential. Also, they want to bring a different take on the Walking Dead team, and present something new.
“We are fully dedicated to releasing an unforgettable experience for fans around the world and continuing to support it with high quality content in the coming years.”
From the declarations, we can reach the conclusion that the team will get more inspiration from the comic books. This will be different from other similar titles, which focused more on other products or content which popularized this story.
Starbreeze bring more games this year
Besides this ambitious project, Starbreeze prepared more surprises for their fans which are set for this year. In a few months, they might be releasing System Shock 3 for PC, but this depends on how quick they will be able to finish the game development. Also, there are rumors that they might be preparing an expansion for Payday 2.
This week, the company will make an announcement regarding Psychonauts 2. As it seems, they have big plans for this year, and they are most surely preparing something special for next year, too.
