The Walking Dead Confirmed for XBLA, Due in April

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
Up until now, we've been covering Telltale's The Walking Dead very cautiously. It hadn't yet been confirmed for Xbox LIVE Arcade, and Telltale has given the 360 the cold shoulder before with some of their other games, like the episodic Back to the Future stories. However, the developers assured us that the game would be made available for "all major gaming platforms" which sounds a lot like "360, PS3, and PC".

Fortunately, we can now stop assuming. Telltale has confirmed the game for our favorite downloadable service, and they've also set a release window. The zombie hordes will shuffle in this April with the first of five episodes in the game. No pricing has been announced yet, but we'd expect that news to come soon. Many of us, myself included, are curious as to what type of game this will actually be. Telltale is known for their unconventional gameplay. Look for The Walking Dead this spring and look for our continuing coverage as we near the release.
