Payday 3 is pitching towards a 2022 or 2023 release window, says Starbreeze

Starbreeze has stated that it is targeting a release window of 2022 or 2023 for Payday 3 in a press release on the company’s estimated earnings (via WccfTech).

Starbreeze has weathered a serious storm. Overkill's The Walking Dead spelled disaster for the Swedish publisher and developer as it was deemed a commercial failure and met with disheartening reviews. In response, Skybound Entertainment terminated its contract with Starbreeze Studios and so a console version of the game never came to be. Reeling, Starbreeze sold the publishing rights of the System Shock 3 back to Otherside Entertainment, 10 Crowns back to Mohawk Games, and Psychonauts 2 to Microsoft.

Furthermore, Starbreeze announced that it had let approximately a quarter of its employees go in June. In spite of the misfortune that has befallen the company, it is looking to the future with optimism, as revealed in a new press release on its estimated earnings for the next four years. The graph of expected cash flow spikes after the first half of 2022 and is qualified by the expected release of Payday 3 around 2022 or 2023.

Starbreeze is also including expected investments from its publishing partners in the first half of 2020 for both Payday 3 and Payday: Crime War. This would assist its repayments to creditors for an estimated 40 million krona, or £3.2 million. It is hoped that the teams at Starbreeze experience steady growth into the future and are able to deliver their games without hassle, after what has been a tricky year for the company.
