Microsoft is celebrating today, after announcing that in the first two days of release, State of Decay 2 had over one million players.

The player numbers don’t include those who had early access from the Ultimate Edition so it’s clear that State of Decay 2 is a popular game for Microsoft.

In the launch period, State of Decay 2 saw over six million combined play hours and 3.5 million broadcast hours across 41,000 streams.
