Developer Undead Labs announced State of Decay 3 for the Xbox Series X|S and PC in July 2020 and we haven't seen much of the game since its initial reveal. We do know the developer recently opened up a new studio in Orlando, Florida.

Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer on the latest XboxEra podcast and transcribed by PureXbox said he played a lot of State of Decay 2 and that he is excited for the advancements the team is making with State of Decay 3.

"This one's probably not that big of a surprise for people who have watched me play, but I was a big State of Decay 2 player," said Spencer. "Looking at State of Decay 3, I'm incredibly excited about some of the advancements they're going to make.

"They've had this pattern - they've talked about it publically from State of Decay 1, to 2, to 3 and what they want to do, and we haven't shown a lot [of State of Decay 3]. It's a game I really enjoy playing, I'm a big co-op player, I like building, I like resourcing, and I'm really excited about where that team's going."

There is no word yet on when State of Decay 3 will release.

Undead Labs has been one of, if not the fastest, growing Xbox studio. It’ll be interesting to see what they can do with State of Decay going from AA to AAA
