At the E3 event last year, Undead Labs announced State of Decay 2, the sequel to the 2013 zombie shooter title exclusive to the Xbox 360 and Windows PCs. Seven months later, the developers confirmed that it will announce the release date for the game at E3 2017.

In response to a question on Twitter, the official account for State of Decay 2 said it will be rolling out to Xbox consoles and Windows PCs sometime this year, though the developers fell short of stating a clear date.

Did we mention we’re dropping our release date at #E32017, you don’t want to miss this! 😉

Undead Labs also released fresh pieces of concept art from the upcoming game depicting how zombies infest a street both night and day. The studio disclosed that it worked to figure out the colors that must appear under various lighting conditions. Undead Labs also rigged the concept art to play with different levels of night and day. Watch the game’s trailer below:

The game’s description on the Xbox Marketplace states:

The next installment in the critically acclaimed “State of Decay” franchise immerses you in an all-new, multiplayer zombie survival fantasy. Players work together to build lasting communities and tell their own unique story within an interconnected world that remembers the choices you’ve made throughout.

State of Decay 2 is currently in the development stage. The upcoming release of State of Decay 2 marks the first time that the developers offer online multiplayer. The game will supposedly expand upon the progression systems from its predecessor game. Developers billed the game as having a four-player co-op mechanic in a zombie-infested world based on Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.

Players can expect a much larger game world compared to the first installment. The game will also allow gamers to split up instead of sticking together all the time. Meanwhile, you can pre-order the digital game for both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC if you have subscribed to Xbox Play Anywhere.
