‘Payday 2’ Studio Starbreeze To Develop Co-op Dungeons & Dragons Game

Dungeons & Dragons is getting a new video game soon, with Starbreeze Entertainment attached to the project. With the hit tabletop roleplaying game’s spike in popularity attributed to its recent movie release and Baldur’s Gate 3, the announcement doesn’t come as a surprise.

Starbreeze, the developer behind co-op first-person shooter game Payday 2 and 3, will develop and publish the game, which will be produced in Unreal Engine 5. Codenamed ‘Project Baxter’, details are scarce about the new game, but released art shows off its animation style, and a press release marketed the game as a co-op multiplayer. As with all Dungeons & Dragons games, there could likely be playable classes, customisation and of course, dice rolls, but we’ll have to be kept in suspense for now.

Wizards of the Coast has high expectations for the Starbreeze-developed game, with a spokesperson saying that “given their impressive games and passion for Dungeons & Dragons, we are confident that they will create an experience that will delight fans worldwide.”

The game is set to release in 2026, with more details to follow.
