AMC announced today that they will be working with the studio Next Games to develop a mobile game set in the world of AMC’s The Walking Dead TV show.
Titled The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, it will take place in the same setting as AMC’s TV version of The Walking Dead but will follow a different set of characters as they strive to survive in the world overrun by shambling corpses. The studio, Next Games, was founded by former employees of Rovio, Supercell, and Disney. Their CEO, Teemu Huuhtanen, said in an interview “Our approach is to stay true to the main themes of the TV show…Survival strategy, finding safety for your people, balancing between right and wrong and, of course, action when it comes to fighting against the hordes of walkers. We respect the creators of The Walking Dead immensely and want this game to portray the world they have created as closely as possible.”
It was also announced that Next Games will be working on another IP in tandem with No Man’s Land, but no details have been released yet.
