Undead Labs Scrapping State of Decay Multiplayer

Despite being a surprise summer hit for Xbox Live Arcade, not everything is coming up roses for State of Decay. Late last week, developer Undead Labs revealed it was unfortunately going to have to cut the planned multiplayer from the open-world zombie survival game.

“Over the past few weeks we’ve been working with Microsoft to lay plans for the future of State of Decay, including future Title Updates, DLC, and possible sequels. As part of that process we’ve also been thoroughly evaluating the possibility of adding co-op multiplayer to State of Decay. While there are great things in store for State of Decay, unfortunately multiplayer is not one of them,” wrote executive producer Jeff Strain on the company’s forums.

Strain explained the issues were mostly technical, and that Undead Labs could add on a rudimentary and unexemplary multiplayer mode, but it wouldn’t be up to the standards the developer has set for itself. There are still plenty of good things supposedly coming for the fastest-selling original Xbox Live Arcade game, but Strain stopped short of explaining what lies ahead for State of Decay. Whatever Undead Labs’ plans, we can’t wait to see what comes next.
