Not the biggest or most shocking news here but it looks like Overkill's The Walking Dead will be coming to consoles through 505 Games. They will be known for working together in the past for the Pay Day titles as well as the critically acclaimed, on this site, Naughty Bear. This of course all makes perfect sense given the fact that Overkill's The Walking Dead will be another Pay Day-like title and the two have worked well to bring those titles already so it was most likely the safe bet that this was going to happen sooner or later. Now they have a lot of time to run some amazing ad campaigns like they did for Naughty Bear.
Of course this is only for the console version of Overkill's The Walking Dead as it looks like Starbreeze is either still handling the PC version or there is another line up for that. In the end it really boils down to the fact that no one wanted us to forget that Overkill's The Walking Dead is still in development but there is nothing to show for it just yet. That is how we should almost always read these kinds of releases as do we really care who is footing the bill that we will end up paying? It's not like we can expect Overkill's The Walking Dead to ride the coattails of Naughty Bear just because 505 is going to being us this title. Right?
Partnering with 505 Games partner with us on the console publishing for ‘Overkill’s The Walking Dead’ will streamline the distribution and marketing of the title in the traditional space and on the digital console marketplace. Having worked together before on the successful Pay Day-franchise, we are certain this will be a fruitful collaboration.
