The weeks are counting down to some of the most anticipated showcases in gaming, including (but not limited to) the Xbox Games Showcase on June 9th. Microsoft hasn’t indicated what to expect, but rumors have circulated for some time now on announcements for Gears 6 and even potentially Perfect Dark.

Undead Labs’ State of Decay 3 is reportedly another such title, having first been announced in 2020. Jez Corden of Windows Central implies that it will be at the showcase, and according to “trusted sources,” it looks “far more impressive” than State of Decay 2 (with visual presentation receiving “more attention”). It’s also reportedly leaning “more heavily into narrative elements to immerse you in the game’s world.”

Perhaps one of the more promising features is working “individual community members’ backstories more viscerally into gameplay, to make their trials more impactful and immersive.” With how much State of Decay 2 was initially viewed as a marginal improvement over its predecessor, the sequel should set itself apart.

State of Decay 3 doesn’t have a release date but will launch for Xbox Series X/S and PC. Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty was “cautiously confident” last year that there would be gameplay deep dives for it and Perfect Dark by late 2024. Stay tuned for more updates and, hopefully, a full reveal at the showcase.
