Overkill's The Walking Dead is a video game that takes place within Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic series' universe, developed by Overkill Software, the same company that produced the Payday series. It was announced on August 13, 2014, and was slated for a 2016 release. However, the game has undergone several delays and eventually the game was rescheduled for November 6, 2018. The game was officially discontinued following Skybound's dissatisfaction with the game's commercial performance, and the PS4 and Xbox One's versions consequently cancelled.
