Undead Labs has kept up support for State of Decay 2 in 2022, with some updates that have been quite substantial, but the bulk of the studio’s support, of course, is on the upcoming full sequel, State of Decay 3. The survival title has been in development for a while, and interestingly enough, its developer has been getting some support from other developers under the Xbox Game Studios banner as well.

Speaking in a recent episode of the Major Nelson podcast, Xbox Game Studios boss Matt Booty revealed that Gears of War developer The Coalition is aiding Undead Labs with its expertise on Unreal Engine 5, which is the engine that State of Decay 3 is being built on as well.

“You mentioned Undead Labs, they’re working with The Coalition up in Vancouver, our Gears of War studio, using some of the technology around Unreal 5 and some of the stuff that’s been in Gears of War before to bring that into State of Decay,” Booty said (transcriber by Pure Xbox).

State of Decay 3 is in development for Xbox Series X/S and PC. The game doesn’t yet have a release date. When it was announced in 2020, Undead Labs said the project was in early pre-production, though there haven’t ben any updates on it since then.
