If zombies can't see or hear you, then there's less of a chance of them making you their lunch. Evasion is one of the main goals of Microsoft Studio's zombie-survival video game, State of Decay. Developed by Undead Labs and released to the XBox 360 and Microsoft Windows last year, State of Decay, along with a handful of other Microsoft properties, could be getting a live action adaptation.

According to Destructoid, Microsoft is in the early stages of finding the right partnerships for six of their popular video game franchises, including State of Decay:

"Microsoft showed off its plans for the Xbox Originals programming to Destructoid and one of the major takeaways from the meeting we had was that the company is currently looking at creating live-action content based on Halo, State of Decay, Gears of War, Forza, Fable, and Age of Empires."

Nobody is attached to a State of Decay live action project yet, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers posted on further news as it develops.

For those unfamiliar with the zombie-survival game, we have its synopsis:

“The end is here. Life as you know it has gone to hell after the mother of all zombie outbreaks. Now you and the few scattered survivors must band together to survive and rebuild in a 3rd-person action game set in a dynamic open world. You choose where to make your stand, designing and fortifying your home base, performing daring raids for food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors with unique talents. The open, sandbox world develops in real-time, dynamically generating content based on your choices and the ever-increasing zombie threat.”
