Overkill’s The Walking Dead delayed to February 2019 for PS4, Xbox One

PC version still due out on November 6.

Overkill's The Walking Dead

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Overkill’s The Walking Dead have been delayed from their previously planned November 6 release in North America and November 8 release in Europe to February 2019 worldwide, Starbreeze announced. The PC version will still be released on November 6.

Here is the full statement from Starbreeze:

505 Games, which owns the publishing rights to the console version of Overkill’s The Walking Dead, has decided to release the console version of the game in February instead of November, as previously planned. They have opted to do this because they want to ensure a simultaneous release of the console version digitally and in stores to achieve optimal marketing impact and maximize sales. The important global release of the PC version is planned for 6 November. Notably, according to the current plan we will be recognizing the advance royalty of USD $10 million we have received from 505 Games for the console version in the fourth quarter of this year.
