Undead Labs’ new zombie-slaying title, State of Decay 2, hasn’t been out for a week, yet Microsoft has already put out a press release on its success so far. According to Aaron Greenberg, Head of Marketing for Xbox, State of Decay 2 has crossed 1 million players two days after the global release of the standard edition. These numbers include both Xbox Game Pass users as well as purchased copies of the game.
Since Early Access for the Ultimate Edition on May 18 and the global release of the Standard Edition on May 22, we have had over a million survivors across the globe playing and creating their own zombie survival story. Throughout launch, there have been over six million combined hours of State of Decay 2 gameplay, and we’ve watched nearly 3.5M hours of gameplay across Mixer, Twitch and YouTube Gaming from over 41,000 unique broadcasts.
Putting this giant open-world zombie survival sim in the hands of fans has exposed some bugs and issues – we’ve addressed and will continue to address them as we hear more from players. The team at Microsoft Studios and Undead Labs continue to work on updating the game to address these issues as our number one priority. If you are having any problems with the game, please check out our support page here.
This is definitely a good sign for the game and I’m happy for Undead Labs. Hopefully we’ll see the remaining issues in the game addressed soon.
