Partnering with 505 Games partner with us on the console publishing for Overkill’ The Walking Dead’ will streamline the distribution and marketing of the title in the traditional space and on the digital console marketplace,” Starbreeze CEO Bo Andersson Klint said.

Having worked together before on the successful Payday-franchise, we are certain this will be a fruitful collaboration.”

There have previously been two other titles based on the Walking Dead IP – Telltale’s successful episodic series and Activision’s less successful FPS Survival Instinct.
