Skybound Entertainment, founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and David Alpert, has partnered with Skydance Interactive, a division of David Ellison's Skydance Media, to develop virtual reality video games based on the post-apocalyptic world of The Walking Dead. The initial report was unclear about which systems would receive The Walking Dead VR, but Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive appear to be likely platforms.

Dan Murray, Skybound President of Interactive, told IGN, "The Walking Dead, it all comes back to moral choice and what would you do as the player".

For over a decade, Robert Kirkman's comic book series, The Walking Dead has taken fans into a world where the zombie apocalypse never ends. That's sort of the essential principal pillar of the IP. The most successful gaming venture for TWD so far has probably been the series of adventure games produced by Telltale, although those games have been based on the comics, and not the TV series directly. "What better way to experience that than being in the environment itself?"

Hollywood properties have been getting VR tie-ins frequently over the past few years, but now The Walking Dead is stepping things up with an entire series of virtual reality games.

Release date and platforms were also left blank for The Walking Dead's VR debut, but eager fans can bide their time playing Telltale's excellent, now ongoing game adaptions of the Eisner Award-winning comic. An FPS game - The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct - starring Daryl and Merle Dixon was also released for consoles, although it was widely panned by critics.

The first game in their multi-title partnership will be called "The Walking Dead", but it will have a brand new cast of characters and location.
