Not one to shy away from giant piles of money, the richest man in Kentucky Robert Kirkman and his Skybound Entertainment partner David Alpert have teamed with David Ellison's Skydance Interactive to produce The Walking Dead virtual reality games. That's right. The two have partnered for multiple VR games set in The Walking Dead universe. The first title will feature a new setting and cast of characters, because nobody liked those old characters anyway, "which players will experience through an innovative contextual interaction system."

The game will have a heavy emphasis on the moral choices a player must face, according to Skybound President of Interactive Dan Murray.

"The Walking Dead, it all comes back to moral choice and what would you do as the player. That's sort of the essential principal pillar of the IP. I think that's what people who either read the comic, watch the show, play the games. "What better way to experience that than being in the environment itself?"

Since the story is still in development, it's unknown where the story will fit in in the world of The Walking Dead. The game currently has no release date and is being developed in Unreal Engine for release on various platforms, including Oculus, PSVR and HTC Vive.
