As we mentioned above, The Walking Dead video games work in their own right, separate from the TV show, and Overkill's Walking Dead game looks to be taking its own path as well, so it all ties together into a central product, even if characters don't interact with one another. The long trailer at SDCC has been watched millions of times, and to top it all off, the Season 8 premiere is the 100th episode of the show.
Or it could simply become an advert for Fear The Walking Dead by bringing in one of their characters into the mainline show, which might be the most cynical option.

Courtesy of Polygon, we have learned that franchise creator Robert Kirkman has officially confirmed an upcoming crossover between The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead.
Kirkman also said that the crossover would most likely occur within the next year. From our vantage point we do think that having a Walking Dead character on Fear the Walking Dead makes the most sense just because there's a definite end to it where they go and join the other world again.
Kirkman was scarce in terms of details, saying, "We've finally gotten to a place [with Fear the Walking Dead] where we can play with some things", but a source confirms to EW that the shows will converge at some point next year.More news: Gerard Pique jeered by Spain supporters after Catalonia independence referendum

When discussing his input on Fear - which was co-created by Kirkman - Gimple talked to EW about his working relationship with Goldberg and Chambliss. It's worth pointing out that both shows are now at completely different points in the timeline.
