Payday 3 developer Starbreeze has revealed that it's working on a new Dungeons & Dragons game in collaboration with Wizards of the Coast. Under development under the codename ‘Project Baxter’, the game is a co-op multiplayer Unreal Engine 5 title, due to release in 2026.

According to the official announcement, Project Baxter 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.” There's no word on whether the game will be a straight-up RPG, an action game, or something else.

“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," said Starbreeze CEO Tobias Sjögren.

“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,” he added.

Project Baxter will also feature cross-play across all platforms when it launches in 2026.

  • I really wanna sit in these meetings where they decide to make a game "live-service".
  • The editors could save us all a lot of time by calling out "Gaming As a Service" in the article title.

    I opened this and started reading when I saw "Dungeons & Dragons Co-Op," and I stopped reading and closed the article when I read "Games as a Service-model."

    Let's have a little journalistic integrity, shall we? It would save us all some time.
