Undead Labs To Work On State of Decay 3, Microsoft Says

In a recent interview, Matt Booty has provided more information about what he is expecting Undead Labs to work on now that they have shipped State of Decay 2 and are a part of Microsoft Studios.

Unsurprisingly, the head of Microsoft Studios said that Undead Labs is a State of Decay studio, so they are going to work on a State of Decay 3 game as soon as they feel the time is right and likely won't focus on new intellectual properties.

Undead Labs Will Make State of Decay 3

"We have two million people playing so far playing State of Decay [2] since the launch; it's really gone well for us. It's difficult to make a great game like that, but they kept at it. They made State of Decay 1, it's a great game … State of Decay 2 just launched, I love that they're kind of iterating and building," he said.

"When we first started working on the State of Decay, we had a much bigger game, a much more persistent online game, and I know that Undead Labs will get there eventually, but by bringing them into the Microsoft family, I think we're able to accelerate that and get us there sooner which is great."

"In the case of Undead Labs, we absolutely want to go make State of Decay 3. That is a clear goal. That studio will have some other incubation, they'll work on some things, but this is a State of Decay 3 team."

State of Decay 2 just shipped and has two expansions planned, offered as part of the Ultimate Edition (also complete of the original game remastered for Xbox One), so it will take at least a couple years to learn more about a sequel, we guess.
