Regarding the setting of The Walking Dead, Listo confirms that the game will be set in the same universe as the comic, but will feature all new characters. “We work with Robert [Kirkman] himself.

Listo also addressed the subject of the storm, a science fiction first-person shooter co-op previously described as “PayDay in space.” Is it still going on? Development of The Walking Dead will affect his progress?
