State Of Decay 2 Coming To Steam Early 2020
As announced by Undead Labs and Xbox Game Studios, the PC version of State of Decay 2 will hit Steam sometime next year. Unfortunately, that’s all the information we were given, so there’s no time frame given outside “early,” which could mean any of the first few months of the year. The PC version of the game has been available to purchase since last year via The Windows Game Store.
Interestingly, Undead Labds teases that there are more surprises coming on this front in the coming months, suggesting there’s more to this port than, well, just a port. However, for now, it’s not talking about these surprises, but it’s claiming on the Steam page this is the studio’s “best-ever vision of the zombie apocalypse.”

A store page for the title has already gone up on Steam, and although it shows the official release date as April 1, 2024, a developer’s note near the bottom of the page reveals the actual early 2020 release window. That same note also adds that “there are some wild surprises” planned to arrive in the coming months, which could be pointing towards another expansion.
State of Decay 2 is an open-world survival fantasy game for you and up to three co-op friends, reads an official pitch of the game. After a zombie apocalypse, your small group of survivors seek to rebuild a small corner of civilization, and you get to make all the decisions about how that happens. You decide who to recruit to your team, where to settle your community, how to fortify and upgrade your base, and when it’s time to move to greener pastures. You select which survivor to bring along on a scavenging run for the food and ammo you need, and who you’ll use to fight off the zombies attacking your base. You choose how you’ll deal with other people who move into your town. Will you be friendly and welcoming… or will you aggressively defend your territory.
State of Decay 2 comes in at $29.99 on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One and Windows 10, and we can assume the Steam version will cost the same when it releases next year. The zombie title is also available in Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC subscriptions.
