    Overkill's The Walking Dead (PC)

    Payday developer Overkill Software's cooperative first-person shooter based on The Walking Dead will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, the developer's parent company Starbreeze has announced.

    505 Games will publish the shooter, giving Starbreeze for a $10 million licensing fee and royalties on console sales.

    The developer previously said Overkill's The Walking Dead will deliver a "completely new co-op experience" to the Walking Dead universe that will explore new characters and storylines. The game is being made with the blessing of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, who says he was certain from the first day he saw the project that it was the "co-op action game fans have been waiting for." It is also the result of a new "long-term" partnership between Starbreeze and Kirkman's Skybound Interactive company. This partnership will extend "into the next decade" and marks a new era for Starbreeze, the company said.

    The game is scheduled to launch in 2016.

    It's looking like this game is never going to see the light of day on consoles:

    The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Overkill’s The Walking Dead, which were due to launch next month, have been postponed indefinitely instead.

    Starbreeze Studios, which owns Overkill Software, made the announcement on Friday in a two-sentence news release for investors. “Starbreeze AB is currently evaluating and reviewing the performance of the game Overkill’s The Walking Dead on consoles,” it said. No other reasons or details were given.

    This game is now officially dead.

    After a prolonged development and low review scores upon release, it's safe to say that Overkill's The Walking Dead was a disappointment to fans. But fans weren't the only ones disappointed.

    Skybound Entertainment was co-founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and the company holds the Walking Dead license. Today, Skybound released a statement saying that it has terminated its contract with publisher Starbreeze Studios, and it will discontinue efforts on Overkill's The Walking Dead.

    "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," the statement reads in part.

    The console versions of Overkill's The Walking Dead were originally slated to come out this month, but they were recently delayed. With this new development, it seems unlikely the game will release on any additional platforms beyond the original PC version.
