The Walking Dead, a popular action zombie TV show, will be getting a mobile game soon according to AMC. Development Studio Next Games, has been brought on to complete the task. Founded by design veterans from Rovio, Supercell, and Disney, Next Games looks like a sure fire bet to do this game justice. Right now details are scarce but Next Games does state that this game will “match the against-all-odds action and moment-to-moment tension of the TV series”.
The Walking Dead mobile game will be designed from the ground up with smartphone and tablet as a focal point so this is by no means a port of the currently available PC version. Next Games seems to be very excited about this new title as well, boasting that this will be something never before seen in The Walking Dead franchise.
“We want to find that sweet spot where gameplay and narrative inform and reinforce one another. Like AMC’s The Walking Dead itself, we’re not giving away too many details right out the gate, but I can confidently state it’s unlike anything we’ve seen from The Walking Dead franchise on home or mobile gaming hardware before.” – Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO at Next Games
Next Games is being quite secretive about The Walking Dead mobile game as far as details go including any sort of release date, only teasing us stating The Walking Dead will be coming in the near future. They have however promised that additional details will be released in the upcoming months and we will be sure to update everyone as soon as any new information is available.
