With Payday 3 out the door and getting updates, developer Starbreeze is moving part of the studio onto its next project, a Dungeons and Dragons live service game.

In an announcement on the studio’s website, Starbreeze says that it has licensed “the world’s greatest roleplaying game” to be used in a game released in 2026.

They continue to say that the new game “will carry the signature Starbreeze game cornerstones of co-operative multiplayer, lifetime commitment through a Games as a Service-model, community engagement and a larger than life experience.”

Built with Unreal Engine 5, the game will launch on all consoles and feature cross-play.

“It is hard to imagine a better pairing than Dungeons & Dragons® and Starbreeze – both with their foundation in cooperative and community driven experiences, ‘play it your way’ and infinite replayability,” Starbreeze CEO Tobias Sjögren said in the announcement.

“When looking at prospective IPs for our future projects, Dungeons & Dragons was always at the top of our list and I’m incredibly happy to announce this license. I want to thank Wizards of the Coast for being such a great partner. Development of the game is in full swing, and we are excited to deliver an amazing Dungeons & Dragons action-adventure in 2026.”
