Starbreeze Studios eyes free-to-play game development, but won't leave AAA titles behind

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Following a recent downsizing of its ranks, Swedish developer Starbreeze (the studio behind the recent Syndicate reboot) has revealed its plans to go free-to-play with a new title of theirs called Cold Mercury.

Though this may seem to signal a departure from triple-A game-making, Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark assures Gamesindustry International that "Starbreeze will not leave the AAA segment."

He goes on to say, "We are discussing with several leading game publisher on publisher financed games, but we will broaden our product portfolio of games in the new business models and segments that have arisen in the games industry. I am convinced that Starbreeze will be successful with the new games."

As a side-note, the company is also looking for a distribution deal for another project, P13. This one is being developed, with the assistance of Swedish movie director Josef Fares, following pitching sessions at the recent GDC a few weeks back.
