Overkill’s The Walking Dead game release date is now slated for a 2017 launch. The game’s publisher Starbreeze didn’t reveal the exact date, but the game is expected to hit store shelves in the second half of the year, IGN reports.

The news comes shortly after a $40 million investment by Korean game company Smilegate into Starbreeze. iDigitalTimes was able to get a first look at Overkill’s The Walking Dead during StarBreeze’s VR demo at E3 2015.

Almir Listo, global brand director for Starbreeze Studios and producer of Overkill’s The Walking Dead , spoke to us about the upcoming title. Listo confirmed they are working work directly with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman on first-person shooter to further explore The Walking Dead universe and create a game fans will love.

“[The game is] based on the comic book universe created by Robert Kirkman and Skybound. We have a very strong relationship with them,” Listo told iDigitalTimes. “It’s a direct partnership- there is no publisher involved that’s deciding everything. We decide what we want to do together with Robert and his team. It’s going to be new characters and storylines based on the same universe as the comic books.”
