Den of Wolves announced from Payday: The Heist creator


10 Chambers, the Swedish studio founded by former Payday and Payday 2 developers, has announced Den of Wolves.

Shown during The Game Awards, Den of Wolves is a heist game from Ulf Andersson, one of the creators of the Payday franchise, who appeared on stage at the event.

“Coming from having worked on heist games in the past, much focusing on the classic bank robbery themes, the sci-fi aspect will let us elevate what a heist can be,” says Ulf Andersson, founder and game director. “You can only rob so many banks.

“Den of Wolves will have a wider range of heisting – corporate espionage, sabotage, assassinations – really, the sci-fi theme lets us try many things.”

The game has been in pre-production for two years. The game’s first trailer, which can be viewed below, gives players their first look at Midway City.

“The game isn’t open-world, but we still value worldbuilding enormously, and the narrative we’ve built around the island is vast,” says Simon Viklund, co-founder, and Narrative and Audio Director.

“We want Midway City to feel like a believable city of the near future, where late-stage capitalism has gone rampant and corporations set the rules.

“As a player, you reside in the city’s underground domains without any real identity or papers, building your allegiances to become a criminal entrepreneur on Midway City’s black market of gig jobs.”
