OVERKILLS THE WALKING DEAD: Console version is really dead, but for real!

OVERKILLS THE WALKING DEAD: Console version is really dead, but for real!


Zombie fans may be a tad upset to learn that Overkills: The Walking Dead has been completely canned for Playstation4 and Xbox One. The game was only released in November 2018 on PC but has since been pulled from Steam due to extremely poor sales and negative reviews.

Critics panned the game for its bland gameplay, many technical issues and lack luster graphics. Released with what was to be season 1 of the game, OverKill had planned to release multiple seasons of the Left 4 Dead clone in a similar manner to their smash hit, Payday 2. However, it seems that Skybound Entertainment have decided to pull the plug on any further content for the game. It seems that they have also decided to cancel all console ports of the game as well, this was obviously due to the games poor sales and poor reception.

(The Walking Extremely Dead in this case)

Skybound Entertainment, the company founded by David Alpert and “The Walking Dead’s” Robert Kirkman, have stated that there unhappy with the game as it did not meet their expected standards. When asked about the games cancelation Skybound Entertainment gave the following statment:

“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,” according to the statement. “We did our best to work with Starbreeze and resolve many issues that we saw with the game, but ultimately ‘Overkill’s The Walking Dead’ did not meet our standards nor is it the quality that we were promised. We are exceedingly sorry to our fans and share their disappointment in the game. We remain dedicated to providing our fans with the most premium quality content we can offer, and will continue to look for alternative video game options for the IP.”

Zombie fans need not worry though; there are plenty of other games out there that can satisfy your brain craving needs such as the brilliantly remastered Resident Evil 2, among many others. Just don’t be expecting to be joining Rick and the gang anytime soon after this.
