Overkill's The Walking Dead is a video game developed by Overkill Software, the same company that produced the Payday series. It was announced on August 13, 2014,[1] and was slated for a 2016 release.[2] 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,[3] and the PS4 and Xbox One's versions consequently cancelled. Prior to it's cancellation the game took place within the Comic Universe, however it is now considered non-canon.
