Sweden-based developer Starbreeze had to lay off most of its staff due to poor sales. Even worse, he had to sell the rights to some of his games. The company, which is still not closed, sees Payday 3 as the way out of this black period. The company made some statements about the new Payday 3 game and release date.
Some companies have become synonymous with the games they have developed. There are many examples such as the Assassin’s Creed series coming to mind when Ubisoft is mentioned, or the FIFA series when EA is mentioned. On the other hand, some companies are not mentioned their name, no matter how popular they are with the games they developed. For example, we can bring Starbreeze, the developer of the Payday series.
Swedish-based game developer Starbreeze is the developer of the PAYDAY series, perhaps the most popular bank robbery game globally. Although the game is popular, the company has not been able to talk about itself at the same rate. After the poor sales of the game “Overkill’s The Walking Dead” they released, the company came to the verge of bankruptcy. Stating that the company will not see another year unless they can find additional funds in their statements made recently, Starbreeze came up with a new plan.
