The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners turned 1 this week, and in a celebration video members of developer Skydance Interactive teased they can’t wait to share “what’s next”.
The two-minute video, recently posted on Twitter, has individual members of the development team thanking fans for the game’s first year, in which it generated more than $29 million in revenue. Amongst the messages, a handful of staff including Marketing Coodinator Alex Eden note that they “can’t wait to show you what’s next”.

That’s about the only tease you’ll get out of the video but it is worth noting that Skydance is currently hiring for a number of roles in its VR team. Included among the listings is one for a Narrative Director “to conceptualize and drive the narrative vision of a complex virtual universe” and a Senior Software Engineer “to help develop our next generation of groundbreaking games.”
Certainly, it seems like Skydance is ramping up work on at least one new VR title, then. Saints & Sinners was one of our favorite VR titles of 2020, so we’re definitely looking forward to what else the team has in store. For now, though it’s still working on the Quest version of Saints & Sinners’ Trial update, which is due out on February 4th.
But just what could the studio be working on? Can we expect a full sequel to Saints & Sinners? Or does the Narrative Director listing hint at something more original? What do you think Skydance Interactive is working on next? Let us know in the comments below!
