State of Decay 3 Planned for 2027 Release, It’s Rumored

There’s a rumor circulating that State of Decay 3, the long-awaited sequel to Undead Labs’ 2018 game, is scheduled to be released in 2027. This particular rumor was kicked off following a discovery on an Art Station profile belonging to a Lighting and Technical Artist at Undead Labs. On this profile, it said that the game would drop in 2027 – and since that claim came to light, the artist has removed the reference from their profile.

Almost a Decade

It could be that this was an older date being referenced and it was removed to avoid any confusion, or it could be that it was a legitimate, planned release date for State of Decay 3. It was around two years ago that Undead Labs released a teaser trailer showcasing State of Decay 3, and since then, everything has gone quiet.

We’ve had no further news delivered regarding the game, but 2018’s State of Decay 2 continues to be updated. It was just a couple of weeks ago that the ‘Curveball’ update was applied to State of Decay 2, bringing players a mechanic that would see randomly-generated events occur in the game.

If State of Decay 3 is to launch in 2027, that means that players far and wide would be subjected to almost a ten-year delay between games. These days, that’s not so strange a concept. It was ten years between Dead Island and Dead Island 2, for example – and at the moment, Elder Scrolls VI is on track to be released more than fifteen years after Elder Scrolls V.

  1. That’s crazy they announced it back in 2020. What about all the other games? The old rumor was true no games until next generation. Perfect Dark I assume gets cancelled or is next gen, Killer Instinct is dead, and the same for all the other games cancelled or next gen.
