BacklogCritic: "State of Decay 2 seems to follow in the footsteps of Sea of Thieves. Its a generally OK game but might not hold the mass audiences attention for long. People who love the game will absolutely love it, but I can see it dropping off just in the same way SOT did. Whether Microsoft continues to support it in the form of a games as a service model, which we anticipate they will do with Sea of Thieves also, it may have some legs. This is definitely another case for making use of the GamePass and seeing if its worth picking up of staying subbed."
