The Walking Dead, New Game Coming From Next Games

AMC announced today that Next Games, a company comprised of design veterans from Rovio, Supercell and Disney, would be taking a shot at The Walking Dead with a new mobile-exclusive game that the company claims is “unlike anything we’ve seen from The Walking Dead franchise.”

“We chose to team up with Next Games because of their outstanding creative and technical talent, as well as a willingness to re-imagine the unique and compelling world of The Walking Dead, which has built a significant and passionate global fan community — we’re thrilled to be part of this next wave of games innovation and participating in a project that – like the show itself – is in service of the fans,” Said Charlie Collier, AMC president.

According to Next Games, their focus has been on capturing the moment-to-moment tension of the series. “We want to find that sweet spot where gameplay and narrative inform and reinforce one another,” said Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO at Next Games. More information will be available soon. The game is expected to coincide with the release of Season 5 of The Walking Dead.
