The State of Decay 2 release date will be announced at E3 2017, the biggest video game show of the year. It was previously announced that the game would be appearing at the Xbox showcase on June 11, but nothing else was announced until now. Fans of the first game can finally mark their calendars and see when the sequel will be getting released.
All of this was confirmed by the official State of Decay 2 Twitter account, so it is pretty legitimate. So we have two months until the developers announce the release date for the highly anticipated open-world zombie game. With single-player and multiplayer options, this is one Microsoft exclusive that other gamers are a little bit jealous of.
Knowing that the State of Decay 2 release date will be getting announced is a great incentive for Xbox owners. While zombies in video games aren’t exactly original these days, the open-world setting should make for fun gameplay. It will be interesting to see how the title fares compared to other games that might get announced.
Leaks recently revealed that new Batman and Assassin’s Creed games could be coming to the big show as well. Add the upcoming Mario Odyssey and other Nintendo Switch games and it seems like the zombie sequel has stiff competition. Nevertheless, fans of the first game will be happy to see the sequel’s release date on the show, along with new gameplay mechanics.
Undead Labs confirming the announcement for the State of Decay 2 release date could be a sign of things to come. With the biggest gaming show in two months, we could see more games get announced before E3 2017 happens. Then again, developers could be holding back so that they can surprise fans on E3 itself, which had great surprises last year.
While not bringing anything new to the open-world genre, fans have a spot in their undead heart for State of Decay. The sequel has taken some inspiration from Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption, so it could be better. It will be interesting to see if the story is more impactful, or if most of the focus is going to the popular online multiplayer.
E3 2017 starts on June 13 and ends June 15, so fans better get ready for the big event. State of Decay is available now on the Xbox One and Windows PC. The State of Decay 2 release date will be announced at E3.
