Overkill’s The Walking Dead was one of 2018’s most negatively received games. The game failed to meet standards leading to the restructuring of Starbreeze Studios, the termination of the company’s CEO, and the delay of the console versions of the game. Now, Skybound has terminated their relationship with Starbreeze Studios since the game failed to meet quality standards.

“As of today, we have terminated our contract with Starbreeze Studios and will discontinue all efforts on Overkill’s The Walking Dead,” Skybound said in its statement. “Our creators and their stories are the core of Skybound, and since 2014 we have worked hard to expand the world of The Walking Dead into an exceptional co-op action FPS.”

Skybound reported they’re still determined to make more The Walking Dead video games but since the quality of Overkill’s The Walking Dead didn’t meet the Skybound’s standards they’ve ended their relationship. 

505 Games, who is handling publishing the PS4 and Xbox One versions, has assured fans that the game will be launching.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is now available for PC. It’s now in development for PS4 and Xbox One. Check out our review here.
