State of Decay 2 release date

Aaron Greenberg, General Manager of Games Marketing at Microsoft has faith in State of Decay 2 and the franchise. He writes;

Our goal is to build a long-term relationship with the State of Decay community and to foster deeper experiences with the franchise.

We believe State of Decay 2 accomplishes this goal by immersing fans in the ultimate zombie survival fantasy, and we want to give more players the opportunity to join in and experience this unique game.

Undead Labs and Microsoft have worked hard to expand and improve upon the first State of Decay and introduce new features for the community. State of Decay 2 includes a wide range of unique survivors and expanded options to manage and develop your community and base.

State of Decay 2 will also include cross-platform play. Four players will be able to team up across both Xbox One and PC and attempt to survive together.

State of Decay 2 is coming to PC and Xbox One on May 22, 2018.
