"From day one on this project it's been clear to me that this is the Walking Dead co-op action game fans have been waiting for. I can't wait for people to learn just what OVERKILL has been cooking up for this game. Skybound is always about breaking new ground and trying to find something unexpected in all endeavors and this game continues that tradition in grand style." says Robert Kirkman, CEO, Skybound Entertainment.
