German boutique publisher Flaregames has will release Zombie Gunship, Inc.in Winter 2016 following nearly a year of silence on the project's status.
The game is being developed by Limbic, which made the original Zombie Gunship, and is a free-to-play version of the previously premium series.
"Zombie Gunship, Inc. is a sequel that millions of players have been waiting for," said Klaas Kersting, Flaregames CEO and founder.
"Our mission with the game is to redefine the mobile shooter genre, delivering a console-grade experience that is a natural fit for touchscreen devices."
Flaregames and Limbic partnered to work on the game in June 2015. Little has been heard about the project since then, however.
The game is now expected to soft launch in "selected countries" in the coming weeks ahead of its global release in late 2016.
