It's been a while since we've heard anything about State of Decay 3, but if you were wondering how this upcoming Xbox Series X|S release is going - it seems the project is still chugging along.
As highlighted by @klobrille, Undead Labs recently recruited an employee from the Saint Row 5 (reboot) team Volition, as a Principle Technical Artist. Mitri Van served as a technical art director on the latest Saints Row game, and also worked on cinematics, asset integration, and quick-time events between 2017 and 2021.
As noted, this latest recruitment bumps the employee count at Undead Labs to around 100+. Back in July, it was also discovered how the developer may potentially be using Unreal Engine 5 for State of Decay 3. As for the latest Saints Row game, it was recently delayed until August next year.
Whenever State of Decay 3 does arrive, it will be made available on Xbox Game Pass. Are you looking forward to this next chapter in the series? Have you played any of the previous entries? Leave a comment down below.
