The Walking Dead Shuffles Into VR

The Walking Dead Shuffles Into VR

A series of The Walking Dead VR games are in the works from Skybound Entertainment, founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and David Alpert, who have partnered with Skydance Interactive for a multi-year project. The first game will feature an entirely new setting and cast of characters, which players will experience through an innovative contextual interaction system.

“The Walking Dead is an iconic phenomenon and it is absolutely thrilling to work with Skybound to bring its incredibly diverse cast of characters, settings, and storylines together into a complete VR game package,” said Skydance Media Chief Executive Officer David Ellison and President and Chief Operating Officer Jesse Sisgold in a joint statement. “Our goal at Skydance Interactive is to honour the visceral world that Kirkman has created while giving The Walking Dead’s fans something to really sink their teeth into with robust games that take the franchise to a completely new level.”

The Walking Dead has expanded from an Eisner award-winning comic book series to find audiences around the world as a high profile TV show, game franchise, licensing business, and ongoing publishing success.


As we reported yesterday, Skydance Interactive recently announced that its first original VR title, Archangel, will be available across all VR console platforms starting in July. Skybound Entertainment recently released its first original VR game, Giant Cop: Justice Above All with partner Other Ocean
