Activision Publishing and Terminal Reality have announced that they will bring the AMC TV series “The Walking Dead” to video game consoles in 2013.
“The Walking Dead” video game will be a first-person action game that, like the series, takes place after a zombie apocalypse. The game is being developed for Xbox 360, Playstation3 and Windows PC systems.
"The work AMC has done with the TV series has been amazing, and we're ecstatic at the opportunity to be brought into the fold," says Drew Haworth, creative director, Terminal Reality. "The studio is made up of fans of the show, and we think other fans will see that the situations and walkers featured in our game are every bit as gruesome and shocking as they are in the TV series. They look, move and react as expected with full authenticity, and they will surprise you.”
AMC's "The Walking Dead," currently in its second season and already renewed for a third, is based on a comic book series of the same name.
