Microsoft Studios VP Phil Spencer has expressed interest in bringing Xbox Live Arcade title State of Decay to Xbox One.
The Microsoft-published zombie survival game has become the fastest-selling new IP of all time on XBLA, having shifted well over half a million downloads to date, according to OXM.
In the past, State of Decay dev Undead Labs has expressed a desire to one day expand to create an MMO zombie game for console and PC.
Asked specifically if the series could some day appear on Microsoft's next-gen console, perhaps in the form of an MMO, Spencer said he's aware that Undead is keen to expand the franchise.
@AcidBuzz @toxiichollow I like the idea. Those that have followed this studio know they have bigger plans for the franchise. I'm in.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) June 20, 2013
Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain said of the series' future recently: "We're laying plans for the future of State of Decay right now.
"There's an incredibly sophisticated simulation engine driving the world of State of Decay - we call it FateEngine - and it gives s a platform to do much more with the game. For a start, I can tell you we're working on a sandbox mode designed to be a pure survival simulation."
Strain also said the studio is still working on a PC edition of the game, which costs 1600 points on the Xbox Marketplace.
