Starbreeze Entertainment has announced it has licensed Dungeons & Dragons to be used in an upcoming game, currently planned to be released in 2026. Currently under the internal codename “Project Baxter,” the game will be set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe and will be a cooperative multiplayer game. Similar to Payday, the game will adopt the Games as a Service model. The company also revealed that the game is being developed in Unreal Engine 5.
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.Tobias Sjögren, CEO of Starbreeze
