Co-op seems like the most glaring omission from a title in this genre. I realize this was a small studio and it was originally an XBL Arcade caliber of title so it's understandable why its missing. However, since they signed a multi-year pact with Microsatan to keep developing for XBL hopefully that means they can make good on their commitment to "Co-op being at the heart of future State of Decay titles" and they don't stop making it multi-platform with PC.
They're working on a followup to State of Decay, which will be an MMO. It's still in a bit of a limbo, but multiplayer is definitely their main focus for their next title.
So instead of a "Zombie version of Borderlands 2" with 4 player co-op -- which I really want, sounds like we'll be getting YetAnotherDayZClone
Thanks for putting words in my mouth, buddy. I didn't say DayZ was an mmo. But everyone including MS undoubtedly saw the sudden rise of DayZ popularity with the million units sold and ultimately wants a piece of the pie. Not hard to read between the lines.
"Let's jump the zombie craze bandwagon" was undoubtedly the narrarive MS had un mind when they offered the contact to this developer, just like they pursued Rocket about doing Xbone version of DayZ.
Not good enough man, I want links to those threads.
