the_walking_dead_survival_instinct_screenshotDeveloper Terminal Reality’s upcoming first-person shooter, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, which is based on The Walking Dead television series, launches next month. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game will be released in Australia, Europe and North America. However, the Wii U console’s version only hits North America and Europe, as the game’s publisher, Activision, today confirmed that, based on customer demand, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for Wii U will skip Australia.

“As with every game release, publishers decide which platforms to release based on customer demand. Unfortunately it wasn’t there for the Wii U sku on The Walking Dead.”



  1. Oh no, they won’t get an Activision game /s

    Maybe they’ll spend their money somewhere else like, i duno, a good game or The Walking Dead Tell Tale series


    • Australia has had an R18+ rating since January 1, 2013. It’s worth noting that this title was classified MA15+ by the Australian Classification Board.


  2. JELLY BEAN, your awkward comments have caused activation to skip Aussie. We shall stand with you and petition the game alá operation rainfall style for you :).


  3. This is just a guess, but it might be because few people are familiar with the television series and thus there’s little demand for it down under. This is not unlike other anime series or Japanese franchises that don’t really reach the US or Europe.


  4. This is the second Wii U game that Activision has chosen not to release in Australia, with the first being 007 Legends. Luckily Australian consumers can just import from other PAL countries.
