After the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead aired in the US last night, creator Robert Kirkman has spoke about the possibility of a TV series and video game crossover.

"That door is always open for us, though whether or not we step through it remains a big question," said Kirkman in an interview with Wired.

So, will we ever see anything like Rick Grimes talking to Clementine? "I certainly wouldn’t want to spoil anything cool like that if we had it coming up," said Kirkman. "Scott Gimple, our showrunner, is certainly a huge fan of that game series as well and very familiar with it."

The Walking Dead game adaptation is being developed by Telltale Games, and is currently in its second season.

Earlier in the current season of The Walking Dead, one of the lead characters planned a trip to Macon, the hometown of protagonist Lee in season one of the game adaptation.

"That was a little nod to those fans, to let them know that we’re aware of the greater Walking Dead universe," said Kirkman. "It’s always fun to come up with those little things."
