THE WALKING DEAD Being Developed Into VR Games.

Skybound Entertainment and Skydance Interactive have partnered to develop a Virtuak Really​ game based on popular TV show and comicbooks ,Walking Dead.

The first game will feature an entirely new setting and cast of characters, that will offer millions of fans and gamers the opportunity to engage, interact, and immerse into the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead through an innovative contextual interaction system.

Dan Murray, Skybound President of Interactive, told IGN, “The Walking Dead, it all comes back to moral choice and what would you do as the player. That’s sort of the essential principal pillar of the IP. I think that’s what people [want] who either read the comic, watch the show, [or] play the games. What better way to experience that than being in the environment itself?”

The new Walking Dead VR game will be release on various platforms, including Oculus, PSVR and HTC Vive. Right now there's no details what the game will center on or when the game will be released.

“Skydance’s ability to build worlds and tell compelling stories matches with our goal to bring The Walking Dead fans new narratives and ways to engage with the world Robert Kirkman created, while staying true to his original vision,” said Skybound Entertainment CEO David Alpert and Skybound Entertainment Managing Partner Jon Goldman in a joint statement. “Skydance Interactive is the ideal partner for the team Dan Murray has created for Skybound Interactive.”

“The Walking Dead is an iconic phenomenon and it is absolutely thrilling to work with Skybound to bring its incredibly diverse cast of characters, settings, and storylines together into a complete VR game package,” said Skydance Media Chief Executive Officer David Ellison and President and Chief Operating Officer Jesse Sisgold in a joint statement. “Our goal at Skydance Interactive is to honor the visceral world that Kirkman has created while giving The Walking Dead’s fans something to really sink their teeth into with robust games that take the franchise to a completely new level.”

The Walking Dead comic book series was created by writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore. The comic book series first launched in 2003 in Image Comics. The series was adapted into the AMC television series The Walking Dead, which premiered in 2010. The TV series received a spinoff show "Fear the Walking Dead," which premiere in 2015.
