If there is money to be made, you better believe that Microsoft wants a piece of it. With Netflix and Amazon jumping into the original programming game, it was only a matter of time before we got Xbox Originals.
Xbox Originals is aiming to bring its game catalogue to life with live-action series a la Netflix. Of course Halo is being thrown out there, but among other titles in development is State of Decay! Now we are a long time away from this happening, but it’s in the works.
Says executive vice president of Xbox Entertainment Studios Jordan Levin:
State of Decay is a 3rd person shooter set in a zombie apocalypse. For Hollywood, zombies are all but dead, but very much alive on T.V. And though State of Decay will only be available to Xbox LIVE subscribers, the question remains, is there room for a zombie series to grow given the high bar set by The Walking Dead? Time will tell.
