PayDay 3 builders Starbreeze have introduced a brand new sport primarily based on the Dungeons & Dragons IP. The title, at present codenamed Mission Baxter, will launch in 2026 on all main platforms and is being constructed with the Unreal 5 engine.
“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. 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.”, stated Tobias Sjögren, CEO of Starbreeze.
“Dungeons and Dragons is having an extraordinary year” says Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Technique and Licensing at Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro. “Our gaming brands, including Dungeons & Dragons, continue to attract great partners as we execute our plan to grow our digital games portfolio through licensing and development. Our collaboration with Starbreeze is a prime illustration of this strategy. Given their impressive games and passion for Dungeons & Dragons, we are confident that they will create an experience that will delight fans worldwide.”
It appears the sport will likely be much like the Payday collection in that it’s going to “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.”
