Overkill’s The Walking Dead has been written about since August 2014, well past peak interest in either the AMC series or the zombie genre at large.
When the game’s development was formally announced, it was originally given a launch window for 2016. At one point, Overkill’s The Walking Dead also had a virtual reality version in development.
It was delayed by a year in January 2016. It was delayed by a year in 2017. During the PC Gaming Show at E3 2018 it was given a November launch date for all platforms. Its Xbox One and PS4 versions were delayed by six months in August. The game’s PC version launched on Steam in November. It wasn’t any good.
