The publication of the cooperative action title “PayDay 3” seems to take a few more years to come. In a recent financial report, Starbreeze does not expect the game until 2020.
Swedish game maker Starbreeze has more or less confirmed in an official financial report for the first quarter of 2018 that the release of the action title “PayDay 3”, which was officially confirmed in February 2017, is unlikely in the near future.
Starbreeze hopes to significantly increase revenues by 2020. While it was possible to bring in $ 41 million in 2017, it would like to reach $ 228.6 million in 2020. It also revealed which games should reach this revenue in 2020. So “PayDay 2”, which will be equipped until 2019 with new content, “Overkill’s The Walking Dead”, a cooperative “Crossfire” game and “System Shock 3” and also called “Psychonauts 2”.
It is striking that 2020 is not expected to “PayDay 3”, which ultimately suggests that the release of the action title is not to be expected until then. At the end of January, a total of $ 44 million had been raised to accelerate the production of “PayDay 3” and to cover the marketing costs of “Overkill’s The Walking Dead”.
