Payday 3 is still coming, and now we’ve learned that developer Starbreeze has cut a deal with Koch Media where Koch will pay €50 million ($59 million USD) to assist with the game’s development and marketing. This mega-deal spans development of the base game and more than 18 months’ worth of post-launch support, as Payday 3 will embrace the games-as-a-service model.
Thanks to this investment, Payday 3 is now “fully financed,” Starbreeze said in a news release. The game isn’t releasing anytime soon, however, as it’s slated to debut in 2023 on console and PC.
The news release also mentions that Starbreeze remains the owner of the Payday IP. The franchise has proven to be extremely successful with 28 million “installed base games” so far. You can see a new image of Payday 3 above.
