Starbreeze Plans a TV or Movie Adaptation of PAYDAY

The developer plans to expand the PAYDAY universe by entering into an agreement with Stockholm Syndrome.

Game developer and publisher Starbreeze Studios has published a statement announcing their plans to expand the universe of the PAYDAY franchise by creating either a TV or a movie adaptation of their popular co-op first-person shooter.

According to the announcement, the developer has partnered up with Stockholm Syndrome, giving the Los Angeles-based production company the exclusive right to represent PAYDAY and allowing its writers and directors to work on the IP. The team added that the partnership's goal is to develop a PAYDAY story for TV or film and find a partner to distribute it worldwide.

"We are very pleased to partner with Stockholm Syndrome with the mutual ambition to bring our franchise to new heights and an even broader audience," commented Starbreeze CEO Tobias Sjögren. "It is a milestone on our journey to create IP that expands beyond the realm of games, and Stockholm Syndrome is a great partner and meshes perfectly with our mission to build an even broader and more engaged community."

"We've had the opportunity to work with a lot of different IPs over the years, and PAYDAY has always been on our radar," Founder of Stockholm Syndrome Peter Settman says. "It has a cinematic quality and narrative that lends itself to a fantastic live-action adaptation."
