The Walking Dead Video Games


Wondering where The Walking Dead video game is?  The wait will be over shortly - Robert Kirkman has entered into a long term deal with Telltale Games to produced a series of video games based on the Walking Dead franchise.

"Telltale Games and Robert Kirkman today announce a long term agreement to produce games based on The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead is an epic drama where personal trials are magnified against a backdrop of moment-to-moment survival. As a zombie epidemic of apocalyptic proportions sweeps the globe, the dead are rising to feed on the living. The living are changed by the overwhelming realization that those who survive can be far more dangerous than the mindless walkers roaming the earth. In a world ruled by the dead, the survivors are forced to finally begin living. 

"We have been fans of The Walking Dead for years. As a narrative-driven company, we really appreciate Robert Kirkman's masterful craftsmanship in every story." said Telltale CEO Dan Connors. "Fans of the franchise are going to be really excited by how we deliver this in the games.""

In their official press release, Robert Kirkman said "The folks at Telltale Games are a great choice for bringing The Walking Dead to life as interactive entertainment.  They care as much as I do about the story and characters while seamlessly weaving that into the games they build. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am ecstatic to work with the same people putting out the coolest Jurassic Park game ever."  

Telltale will produce The Walking Dead games for all console formats plus PC, Mac, handheld, mobile and social media platforms with the first game schedule to be released in Fall 2011.
