Robert Kirkman is best known for his work on The Walking Dead graphic novels, which, yes, have spawned a lot of video games- but it looks like another one of his creations will soon be adapted into a video game, too.
Skybound Interactive and Rival Games announced in a press release today that Robert Kirkman’s Thief of Thieves will be adapted into a video game for PC, which is due out in the first half of 2018. You can check out the announcement teaser for the game for yourself below.
“We’re excited to broaden Robert Kirkman’s world with a mix of characters from the original plot and fresh faces. Rival Games has created an excellent expansion of the original storyline and we can’t wait to share it with our fans,” said Dan Murray, President of Skybound Interactive.
Jukka Laakso, CEO of Rival Games, added, “Comics have always been close to our heart here at the studio, and Thief of Thieves obviously resonates with the team as a crime story. Our cooperation with Skybound has been fruitful from the start, and we’ve been enjoying some great input from their creative team.”
Thief of Thieves will be released in an episodic format, with four episodes, in the first half of 2018. As of right now, no console version has been announced- but stay tuned, because if one is, we will be the first ones to let you know.
