Company: Starbreeze AB (publ)
Founded year: 1998
Starbreeze Studios is one of the oldest game developer studios in Europe. It was founded in 1998 in Härnösand, a city in the northern region of Sweden. In 2000, the company merged with O3 Games from Östhammar just east of Uppsala. The studio then set up camp in Uppsala.
Having worked as a work for hire studio for over a decade on titles like Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay and Syndicate, Starbreeze is well known in the game development community and amongst gamers world-wide.
As the digital age is transforming the game industry from a retail driven market to a digital distributed one, Starbreeze is leading the charge with brands funded by the studio itself – set for digital distribution.
To accelerate this strategy Starbreeze joined forces with Stockholm based OVERKILL Software in 2012. OVERKILL are the makers of the critically acclaimed Co-op game PAYDAY: The Heist. Aiming for maximum efficiency, both development offices will relocate to Stockholm during 2013.
Starbreeze Studios has had eight games published. With the acquisition of OVERKILL Software we also have four game titles that we own ourselves.
- PAYDAY: The Heist – the million unit selling, PC and Playstation 3 game.
- Brothers: a Tale of Two Sons due 2013. Brothers is a unique collaboration with renowned Swedish film maker Joseph Fares.
- PAYDAY 2, the sequel to PAYDAY: The Heist, currently in full production and slated for release in 2013.
- STORM, our long term project in production behind closed doors.
