Starbreeze quietly debuts new co-op shooter, Storm

Monday, 21st January 2013 01:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Starbreeze updated its website last week, incidentally announcing a heretofore unrevealed project, Storm.

Storm is listed alongside Payday 2 and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons as currently in development.

“Co-op Sci Fi FPS. It is our future,” is the terse description.

A single image shows an industrial-like scene.

Storm may well be to be the long-missing Cold Mercury, which was expected as a free-to-play release following Syndicate’s launch in February 2012.

The project was believed cancelled or otherwise significantly altered when the developer’s CEO spoke out against free-to-play games.

In the interim, Starbreeze has been fairly quiet. It acquired Payday developer Overkill, and revealed Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to be the mysterious P13.

Thanks, PlaySyndicate.

    Same here. WTF!? When did Starbreeze work on Payday 2? How did they do it? I’m pretty sure they didn’t make the original.

    1: Starbreeze incorporated Overkill Software, the developers of Payday, a few Months ago. So that’s why they announced Payday 2.

    2: “Storm” has been in development by Overkill for over a Year.
    Proof can be found here:
    and here :

    3: For this reasons “Storm” can’t be the “long-missing Cold Mercury”.

    4: Hey VG247, I’m new here and my name is Gratis.
