Starbreeze Studios was hoping that Overkill’s The Walking Dead would perform better than expected. Unfortunately, it did not and now the company is reconstructing and parting ways with the CEO Bo Andersson.

Starbreeze Publishing, Starbreeze Production, Starbreeze Studios, Enterspace, and Enterspace International has filed for reconstruction with the Stockholm District Court. During this span, “no payments can be made to suppliers for services or goods relating to the period prior to the date of filing for reconstruction.”

Salaries for current employees with still flowing as normal but financial targets for Q4 and 2020 have been thrown out.

Clearly, Starbreeze needs a killer game to recover from the poor sales of Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Perhaps Payday 3 will make the dent the company needs or maybe the second season of Overkill’s The Walking Dead will make a leap in player count.

Overkill’s The Walking Dead is now available for PC and launches for Xbox One and PS4 this February 2019. Our Allen S. reviewed the game for PC and said “It is hard to say how great the flaws outweigh the good that this game does. As stated earlier when the game clicks with a group it is fantastic and even in defeat it’s still enjoyable, but when it fails it is about as fun as rolling around in concrete as it hardens.”
