to The Walking Dead universe, exploring new characters and storylines.



"The   collaboration   between  Starbreeze  Studios  and  our  partner  Skybound
Interactive  will deliver something uniquely exciting  for our millions of fans.
We're  two independents  joining forces  to create  the ultimate survival horror
game.  With Robert on the team, we will bring The Walking Dead into the world of
first-person  shooter co-op games." says Bo Andersson Klint, CEO, Starbreeze AB.
He continues,  "It will  be gameplay  focused, ferocious  and bring chaos to the
traditional  industry model - from us developers straight to you. This time it's
big - don't walk alone."



"From  day one on  this project it's  been clear to  me that this is the Walking
Dead  co-op action game fans  have been waiting for.  I can't wait for people to
learn  just what OVERKILL has been cooking  up for this game. Skybound is always
about  breaking  new  ground  and  trying  to  find  something unexpected in all
endeavors  and this game  continues that tradition  in grand style." says Robert
Kirkman, CEO, Skybound Entertainment.



OVERKILL's  The  Walking  Dead  will  be  powered  by Starbreeze's Diesel engine
updated for the next generation. The title is set to release in 2016.
