The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier Reportedly in Works

A leaker on Reddit reveals details of alleged The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier by reformed Telltale Games.

Halfway though development of episodic adventure title The Walking Dead: The Final Season, developer/publisher Telltale Games were shut down in 2018 and Skybound Entertainment took over to complete Clementine's journey.

Right after their assets were acquired by LCG Entertainment in August 2019, a leaker with ties to reformed Telltale Games recently claims Season 5 of The Walking Dead series titled The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier is in works.

An alleged Telltale insider on Reddit has posted about Tales from the Borderlands Redux lately that is going to be revealed soon. Same leaker also stated that a tech demo for The Wolf Among Us 2 will be premiered via Summer Game Fest.

The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season despite wrapping everything up in its fourth and The Final Season. Its subtitle "A Fatal Frontier" may eventually change, which will take cues from events of Season Three: A New Frontier.

Although the game will be on same length on past releases, TWD will not continue its episodic format and will move to survival horror genre. There are enough dialogue choices but they won't be focused entirely on narrative direction.

Clementine's former companion and second playable character Javier Garcia from Season Three will make his return. Community of Richmond, Virginia has fallen and almost everything else from "A New Frontier" is scrapped except for Javier.

Every survivor that has somehow managed to live until this point since Season Three will all die when falls. Kenny is joining as a returning character, implying developers will force retconning him into story regardless of past choices.

Given how he was shot earlier in one choice and never put down to prevent reanimation, his return is not completely impossible. Kenny and Javier will even cross paths at some point when both of them are out looking for Clementine.

Former members of New Frontier group were apparently behind the fall of Richmond are now after Javier and Kenny. In terms of gameplay, A Fatal Frontier took primary inspiration from games like Resident Evil and The Evil Within 2.

IP for The Walking Dead currently belongs to Skybound following a sudden closure of Telltale Games back in 2018. LCG Entertainment bought all company assets of Telltale and maybe preparing to make a comeback through "A Fatal Frontier".

Whether or not Skybound Entertainment is interested to explore further into TWD universe is still unclear. Since there is no concrete evidence of any of these alleged leaks to be true, fans would be wise to take everything with a grain of salt.

If information from this leak turns out to be true then Skybound is probably breaking usual episodic nature of Telltale Games titles. The Walking Dead: A Fatal Frontier is rumored to debut at PC Game Show as Epic Games Store-exclusive.

Entire narrative of the cinematic revolves around an unnamed female character who is a resident of New Orleans, living her daily life like everyone else until a fateful day when society has collapsed upon the rise of dead army.

Everyday citizens become violent scavengers looking for supplies and wouldn't hesitate to put down another or sacrifice people to a roaming horde for loot and it all comes back to that young girl who has now become an axe wielding survivor.

Set within the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead series by renowned Image Comics writer Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible), Saints & Sinners explores human stories in times of major crisis like a zombie apocalypse.

Players will have to deal more than swarm of undead hordes and continue struggling if they are to survive. Although it has nothing to do with Telltale Games, the game is a survival horror that follows choice-based storytelling.

Saints and Sinners VR game is set three years after initial outbreak took place and players will wander within New Orleans, where a powerful group called The Tower has control over everything and can be more threatening than a pack of zombies.

Entire campaign is around 15 hours worth of story, where you can come across other faction members and get into conflict. Your objective is to look for a lost bunker full of supplies and chop off some undead heads while you are at it.

Weapons arsenal contains axes, blades, blunts, guns, throwable objects and bandages are used to heal wounds. Everything from surrounding environment to character you encounter is rendered to cel-shaded level of graphics.

Although weapons will degrade, players can always craft new ones using parts and supplies are mostly found in abandoned houses. You must go through dialog choices and pick your own action whenever you cross paths with rival groups.

Often times, VR games fail to give players a gameplay depth and many of them are simply an "immersive experience" through virtual reality but Skydance Interactive is trying their best to provide a proper gaming experience.

Having potential to be a pioneer in next generation of VR gaming, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners have yet to confirm their final release platforms aside from Oculus Rift, which hopefully will be revealed soon with a gameplay footage.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Cancelled

Skybound has terminated agreement with Starbreeze for OVERKILL's The Walking Dead as they failed to meet quality standards.

Despite having a lot of potential to become a blockbuster release, first-person shooter title OVERKILL's The Walking Dead from developer Overkill Studios failed miserably to become a decent co-op shooter experience that players can enjoy.

On top of that, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game were delayed twice now and the PC version on Steam wasn't getting any positive feedback due to a buggy launch. All hope is lost now that it has been cancelled entirely after quite a struggle for survival.

Loosely based on the fictional universe of The Walking Dead monthly comic-book series from Image Comics by creator Robert Kirkman (Haunt, Invincible), the game were to follow co-op gameplay mechanics of Payday: The Heist reportedly.

Initially, they announced the title on August 14, 2014 and showed some concepts at E3 2015. Then it was delayed in 2016, which repeated again in 2017 until Overkill Studios was able to show off the first-look gameplay footage at E3 2018.

According to distribution plan, November 2018 was set as the release window for OTWD for all available major platforms but launch date for console versions was delayed to February 2019 and everything starts falling apart from that point.

When Sony started sending emails to pre-ordering customers of PSN, it became very apparent that console version of the game very well might have been canned but 505 Games confirmed it to be postponed shortly after that.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Missed Sales Targets

Skybound Entertainment, who is the license and rights owner of The Walking Dead property has took matter into their hands to publicly announce that they are terminating contract with Starbreeze Publishing and will discontinue all efforts regarding OTWD.

Skybound expressed their outright displeasure for the game not meeting the certain quality of standard they were assured by the Sweden-based developer studio and apologized to fans for not being able to provide premium quality content.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Gameplay Revealed

People were already pretty skeptical about the future of OTWD and looks like luck just ran out on this one. Earlier, Starbreeze even revealed their disappointment from initial sales number generated from PC version sales mostly due to many in-game issues.

Only if Overkill Studios would have taken proper care of the IP, the game could even become the spiritual successor of popular co-op shooter series Left 4 Dead. Anyways, OVERKILL's The Walking Dead is removed from Steam, while PS4 and Xbox One version would not see release either.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Postponed

After speculating cancellation for PS4 and Xbox One version of OVERKILL's The Walking Dead, the game is revealed to be postponed for now. 

Although developer Overkill Software and publisher Starbreeze Publishing initially managed to make fans curious to their first-person shooter OVERKILL'S The Walking Dead, it saw a poor reception upon PC launch back in November 2018.

In August, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game were delayed to February 2019 but it got delayed again. Recently, it becomes apparent that console versions of OTWD have been cancelled, only for an official announcement to confirm later that it has been postponed.

Despite the game being a mess full of bugs on PC, many players on consoles were still waiting to get their hands on it but then one PS4 user who digitally pre-purchased it, shared screenshot of a PlayStation Store notice on Reddit, thinking the game has been cancelled.

The publisher has notified us that the game is cancelled. As a result, we have withdrawn the current pre-order from the PlayStation Store and will cancel all pre-orders. You will receive a refund to your original payment source within 5-7 business days.

Of course, no one would like to get notified about cancellation of a full-priced game that they pre-ordered online and some were patient to wait for 505 Games to respond since players on Xbox One platform did not receive any confirmation as such.

Shortly, console publisher of OTWD, 505 Games stated the true nature of the situation on Twitter to clear things out.

Presented as a visually stunning product with a gripping co-op experience, it ultimately came out nothing as originally promised. What surprises us most is that, even after the anticipated zombie-shooter was an overall disaster, people still waited for console release anyway.

Not only OVERKILL's The Walking Dead was heavily criticized for a buggy release on PC, the game even missed their initial sales target. The disappointing run of the game has made the case of not pre-ordering any game by falling for their marketing campaign.

OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Delayed Again

Already delaying the launch date for PS4 or Xbox One version of OVERKILL's The Walking Dead to 2019, Starbreeze has now postponed the release.

Whenever a new media franchise based on The Walking Dead is in works, it causes an extra hype among fans and same was the case for first-person shooter OVERKILL'S The Walking Dead from developer Overkill Software and publisher Starbreeze Publishing.

However, things weren't quite good for them in overall as they had to delay the release date of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the game while only the PC version came out in time, followed by a missed sales target. Now the launch date for console versions is delayed again.

Originally OTWD was scheduled to release on all three major platforms on November 6, 2018 but only the Windows version came out in due date and release for both Microsoft and Sony consoles got delayed to February 2019.

Without detailing much, Starbreeze has recently announced that they are currently evaluating performance of the game on consoles and it was just a brief news release for company investors, so we don't know about the specific reason behind the delay.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead Missed Sales Targets

The project has a long history of delays following its initial announcement back in August 2014 through Payday 2 community page on Steam. They estimated a release date for January 2016 that got pushed to the next year and then November 2018 launch date saw another setback for this year.

Overkill's The Walking Dead is a co-op FPS title featuring four new characters named Aidan, Grant, Heather and Maya who work together to survive in a post-apocalypse Washington, D.C. from hordes of flesh-eating zombies and hostile marauders.
