State of Decay 2 is the sequel of the excellent first chapter developed by Undead Labs for PC and Xbox 360 in 2013. Recently ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) has rated the title as “Mature” and also provided a general description of the game.
This would suggest that the title is now in the final stages of development since usually, the ESRB is responsible for the rating of complete games (almost). If you remember, the title was originally announced at the 2016 E3 Microsoft conference, with an expected release in 2017. Unfortunately, the following year, Microsoft announced its delay to the spring of 2018.
Given the absence of new information and trailers, some users began to suspect a second delay, but Undead Labs, through Reddit, has repeatedly confirmed that State of Decay 2 would be released in Spring 2018 and that there would be no further delays. This evaluation of the ESRB could confirm what was said and soon the developers could announce the final release date.
We remind you that State of Decay 2 is, at the moment, an exclusive to Xbox One and Windows 10. What do you think about it? Do you think that State of Decay 2 will be available soon? Tell us in the comments below.

“This is a third-person action/simulation game in which players assume the role of survivors in a zombie apocalypse. Players explore small towns and rural settings, locate survivors, and battle hordes of swarming zombies. Players use baseball bats, meat cleavers, machetes, grenades, and machine guns to kill zombies in frenetic melee-style combat. Several weapons allow players to crush/maim zombies’ heads; grenade blasts also depict blood and dismemberment. If other human survivors become infected or ill, players can choose to “euthanize” them by shooting them in the head at close range, resulting in decapitation and large blood-splatter effects. During the course of the game, players can build an infirmary in which they can craft painkillers and opiates; specific drugs referenced include Herbal Remedy, Painkillers, Opiates, Amphetamines, and Pentamezin (a fictional prescription drug). The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.”
