Here we take a look at the best upcoming zombie games for 2018 and 2019. With so many of 2017's zombie games not being released many we hope will see a release in 2018.
Release Date: Spring 2018

Overkill's The Walking Dead
Release Date: 2nd Half of 2018
Overkill's The Walking Dead is a co-op first person shooter with elements of action, role-playing, survival horror and stealth, that invites players to explore the hugely popular The Walking Dead universe, where they will play the role of survivors fending for themselves in a post-apocalyptic world dominated by flesh-eating walkers. In 2016 Washington will fall – what will you do?
Release Date: No Release Date Given - Hopefully in 2018!
Take on the role of former outlaw biker Deacon St. John: a drifter, a bounty hunter, a wandering vestige of humanity. In a world devastated by a global pandemic St. John eschews the ‘safe’ wilderness encampments set up by mankind’s last survivors and takes his chances on the broken roads.
Set against the scarred, volcanic backdrop of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone invites you to explore a world ravaged by degenerate human monsters known only as Freakers. Fight your way across the desolate landscape in search of supply, resources and, above all else, a reason to go on.
Potential Release Date: Unknown but we hope 2018
Valve have announced that they have the development of Half Life 3 on hold in order to develop Left 4 Dead 3 which they say will be released in 2017. It's been a long time coming since Left 4 Dead 2 was launched in 2009 but fans of the series are now rubbing their hands at the prospect of another Zombie survival game from the well reknowned Half Life developers. We will be updating you here with any specific news coming from Valve on Left 4 Dead 3's development.
Resident Evil 2 HD Remake
Potential Release Date: Possibly 2018
A video announcing the Resident Evil 2 HD remake was published by Capcom and the game's being headed up by Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, producer of the highly successful Resident Evil HD Remaster released in January 2015, and Capcom R&D Division 1.
Release Date: Possibly 2018
Set just a few months after the events of the first Dead Island games, this main story sequel (hence the 2 in the title, unlike the 3 other spinoffs before it), delves straight into the next chapter of the sci-fi zombie survival action game. While little is known of the details behind this installment, there are a few major plot points that have been revealed: the first one is the fact that the game is no longer set in an island but is now going to be in a quarantined California. The second key factor in the game is that unlike other zombie-infested cities, the world of Dead Island 2 is also populated by living people in the infested city who consider their current situation as something akin to a second chance.
Potential Release Date: Cancelled at the Moment
Since the original game came out, the Silent Hill series has been at the forefront of the survival horror genre. Be it the feeling of isolation, its myriad of hellish creatures or the eerie soundtrack that haunts you well after you've turned the console off, the franchise is effective at delivering just the right amount of horror to keep you up at night. If you've been thoroughly terrified with its past iterations, then just think of the amount of paranoia Silent Hills would induce if it comes out. Right now the game has been officially cancelled but there are rumours about the internet that say it has merely been put on hold whilst Konami mull over it's expense compared to the likely returns.
Ray's The Dead
Release Date: 2018 TBC
In this truly unique, story driven, action-puzzler, you'll dive head first into both sides of Ray's exciting journey. You'll experience Ray's life before death as a human, as well as his present-day life as a zombie, commanding his own army horde!
