Simon Sherr’s LinkedIn profile reveals that Undead Labs is opening a new studio in Orlando and confirms that State of Decay 3 will use Unreal Engine 5.
State of Decay 3 will use the Unreal Engine 5 , while Undead Labs is expanding by opening a new studio in Orlando , Florida. This information was indirectly shared by the animation director Simon Sherr who reported these details in his LinkedIn profile, subsequently noticed and shared by Klobrille, an insider always attentive to the movements of the Xbox teams.
According to the LinkedIn profile, we learn that Sherr is “Developing a new Microsoft studio under Undead Labs in Orlando, directing animation in UE5 for State of Decay 3 & fostering cross-studio animation technology initiatives across XGS.”
In June of last year, Undead Labs was hiring new recruits specialized in the use of Unreal Engine 5 and therefore the information reported in Sher’s profile definitively confirms the fact that State of Decay 3 will exploit the new version of the Epic Games engine .
The opening of the new studio in Orlando, on the other hand, could mean a greater number of developers working on the game or that Undead Labs plans to give life to another project, which in this case we will only discover in the future.
