Despite shaky performance and numerous reports of severe bug issues, Undead Labs’ State of Decay 2 is another big hit for the studio. Outlets are reporting that the co-op zombie title has racked up over a million sales in the first two days of release alone.

That’s not the end of the big numbers, either. “Throughout launch, there have been over six million combined hours of State of Decay 2 gameplay, and we’ve watched nearly 3.5M hours of gameplay across Mixer, Twitch, and YouTube Gaming from over 41,000 unique broadcasts,” Microsoft said. The studio also noted that the typical period of survival for a player character was three days.

Curious what State of Decay 2 holds? Check out our first impressions piece, in which Andrew says that the multiplayer title “has an experience you aren’t likely to find in a lot of games. It’s frustrating and depressing, but in a way that makes you want to see your band of misfits survive and thrive.”

I would have brought this but I see it only works with windows 10 and I don’t really want to upgrade just to play this game .

Gonna have to upgrade soon anyway. Win10 is better than 7 in almost every way imaginable. I dunno why people continue to use something worse than what is available.

Lots of good folks at Undead Labs, glad that it’s doing so well! I’m looking forward to the wider PC distribution version! Because no, the Microsoft Store version doesn’t count. :p
