Column: Payday 3 will be published in 2023 thanks to Koch Media

Chronique Payday 3 will be released in 2023 thanks to Koch Media Overkill Software, the development studio behind Payday: The Heist and Payday 2, which was purchased by Starbreeze, which now has the rights to make a Payday 3. After the flop that started Overkill’s The Walking Dead in 2008, the studio went through a period of restructuring and was on the verge of bankruptcy. Several bad decisions put Starbreeze at risk. In addition to Overkill’s The Walking Dead, the studio put a good chunk of its funds into funding work on a VR headset, a project that was unsuccessful. Since they were ready to do whatever it takes not to close the studio, they only parted with some of their productions such as System Shock 3, 10 Crowns or Dead by Daylight. Last January, Digital Bros, which owns 505 Games, announced its intention to acquire Starbreeze for the modest sum of 19.2 million euros. Ultimately, it will not be Digital Bros who will publish the game, but Koch Media. Note that the payday license remains in the hands of Starbreeze. Koch Media only invests funds in the project. More than 50 million euros were used to support the development and marketing of the third opus. Also Read: CHECK ALL THE CHRONICLES FROM DAILY JVCOM By Tanabata, Writing jeuxvideo.com MP
