Overkill Software’s first person co-op shooter, Overkill’s The Walking Dead was originally due out on PS4 and Xbox One in November in 2018, but got delayed to February 2019. Though it did launch on PC in November of last year, the game was met with lukewarm critical reception, which was something that not only led to disappointing sales, but also to some serious repercussions for publishers Starbreeze.

Owing to the game’s disappointing performance so far, Starbreeze has now announced (via GamesIndustry) that Overkill’s The Walking Dead’s launch on the PS4 and the Xbox One has also been pushed back. For now, it seems indefinite, with no release date provided for whenever it might end up launching, as the publisher “evaluates and reviews” the game’s performance. 

That said, Starbreeze has said that “further information regarding the future release will be announced at a later date”, which is better than saying nothing at all, I suppose. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more information as this story develops.
