State of Decay Sells Half a Million Copies on XBLA

Jason McDonald

Microsoft has announced today that “State of Decay” is their fastest selling original game on Xbox Live Arcade.  Showing that despite all the moaning and complaining about zombie oversaturation, the undead are still a viable market.

Since it’s release on June 5th, the zombie survival game has managed to sell an impressive half a million copies.  Undead Labs, the studio behind the game,  is undoubtedly thrilled by the success of their game, but they aren’t about to kick back and bask in their newfound riches.  Instead the company is hard at work on patches to help fix some of the issues that have cropped up since the games release.  A recent patch that was supposed to fix some issues went up on Friday, but it would appear that there are still some kinks to work out.

The studio is also looking to release a Steam version of the game in the near future.

We’re currently working on a PC version for release on Steam. Fortunately it’s been in development alongside the Xbox 360 version since Day 1, so we just need to integrate with the Steam platform and add native support for keyboard and mouse control. We’ll also continue to issue Title Updates at a fast pace to refine game balance and fix bugs.

In the meantime, if you want to join the growing community of players on the Xbox 360 who are venturing into the zombie infested world of “State of Decay”, you can purchase a copy on XBLA for 1600 MS points.
