Payday 2 getting two more years of content as Brothers finally hits profit

Starbreeze has revealed the extent of its remarkable turnaround.

Joystiq reports that the studio’s CEO Bo Andersson-Klint has revealed that between 1998 and 2013 the developer incurred a loss of KR 94m ($14.43m).

In its last two quarters it has, thanks to the introduction of a new business model and a focus on owned IP, registered a profit of KR 104m ($15.97m).

I would like to think that is what they call a turnaround,” the CEO said.

As a result Starbreeze has penned a new deal with 505 Games to produce new Payday 2 content over the next two years, saying: "The new improved contract, worth $6m, gives us the security to, for the next 20 months, focus on developing and refining Payday 2 so that it becomes the best co-operative gaming experience available on the market, with many more add-on packages and other exciting events planned."

Andersson-Klint also revealed that indie release Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons has finally” registered a profit, thanks no doubt at least in part to its tremendous critical reception.
