Starbreeze released information that they have formed a partnership with a Korean game company named Smilegate. This announcement goes along with the delay of Overkill’s The Walking Dead VR Experience game. Smilegate will lead the publishing and distribution of games into the Asian markets.
The deal also includes expansion of content within the game for both Asian and Western Audiences. So, instead of having a release this year (2016), the game will now be released in the 2nd half of 2017 to “maximize the new opportunities”, according to Starbreeze.
For those that are not familiar with the game, the makers are developing this game to be a first-person Virtual Reality experience. This will go along with Starbreeze’s own StarVR headset. They will also make a stand-alone version for other systems such as Xbox One and the PS4.
