The comic book made into a television show has now been made into a video game in a short period of time. This game has been speculated all week but confirmed yesterday by Telltale Games. They have been in talks with Robert Kirkman to create multiple videogames based on the comic book series The Walking Dead and finally made a deal. It will be a “multi-year, multi-platform, multi-title” deal and we hope to see the first game released near the end of the year in the fourth quater this year.
Many details of the game remain unknown. It has not been specified what system the games will be on, only that the deal with Telltale has is for consoles, handhelds, mobile, PC, Mac, and social gaming platforms. Also, they are not sure what direction they want to take with the game. “The game is at an early stage, and we’re in the process of mapping this out now.” Kirkman said, what we are sure of right now is that the game will take place in a comic book world and be an episodic series, as that is typically what Telltale releases.
