You might know Starbreeze from their absolute hit IP PAYDAY, a game we all know and love. Well, the independent studio has announced that they are partnering up with Koch Meda, a group that publishes and distributes video games, VR games, hardware, and many more.
This partnership does not affect the development of PAYDAY 3, as Starbreeze studio remains the studio that is responsible for PAYDAY 3.
Tobias Sjogren, Acting CEO of Starbreeze, has said the following: “We are excited to announce this exclusive long-term PAYDAY 3 co-publishing deal with Koch Media who shares our passion for the PAYDAY franchise and the “Games as a service” model. In addition to securing the continued development, this deal secures global publishing of PAYDAY 3 as well as the marketing efforts through the entire game life cycle. We now have a strong foundation for a successful launch of PAYDAY 3.”
This is a great partnership, given that Koch Media is a premier publisher of digital entertainment. This means that Koch Media will be in charge of publishing and marketing ideas and activities for PAYDAY 3 when it finally sees the sun.
Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Koch Media Group, has stated: “We are delighted to welcome Starbreeze as a new partner for our global publishing business. PAYDAY 3 is shaping up to be an incredible game. Based on what we’ve seen already, PAYDAY 3 is going to take the franchise to new heights and will delight PAYDAY fans as well as new audiences alike with innovative multiplayer gameplay.”
