Undead Labs setting up new studio, game development academy in New Orleans

State of Decay developer Undead Labs is opening up a new studio in New Orleans, an expansion that aims to double as a game developer academy to bring non-dev folks into the industry.

Newsbrief: State of Decay developer Undead Labs is opening up a new studio in New Orleans, an expansion that aims to double as a “multidiscipline game development academy.”

The initiative is spearheaded by Undead Labs founder Jeff Strain and is an independent project not directly affiliated with Undead's parent company, though a Microsoft spokesperson notes that "Xbox Game Studios shares his vision for empowerment through games and are eager to support him in his efforts."

A brief announcement from the studio notes that Strain will remain on board as overall studio head while setting up the new outfit, but wants to use the offshoot to build "opportunities to bring in people who might not otherwise consider a career in the game industry.”
