State Of Decay 2 launched a week ago and received a mixed reception from critics. The game was liked by many due to its gameplay mechanics but the frame rate issue and glitches on Xbox One made a lot of people unhappy about it. Despite having such issues the game has managed to cross a million players since its launch.
Today Microsoft announced the achievement on Xbox Wire. These numbers include the players who purchased the game physically or digitally, used Xbox Game Pass, acquired a used copy and game-shared it with a friend.
Microsoft has also recorded a six million combined hours of gameplay since the early access for the Ultimate Edition on May 18 and the global release of standard edition earlier this week.
