Den Of Wolves was announced at The Game Awards 2023 by developer 10 Chambers.
The developer of co-op shooter GTFO is channeling their experience from making Payday: The Heist and Payday 2 to make their own take on the co-op heist game, this time with a techno-thriller theme.
The trailer has set a tone. A really unnerving tone enough to warrant a warning text before the trailer begins.
Den Of Wolves is set in Midway City. And it’s not just bank-robbing that you will do in Den Of Wolves.
“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 of 10 Chambers and game director on Den Of Wolves. “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.”
After Payday 2, the people involved with the project has since split up, creating more games in the same veins of the celebrated multiplayer game. Publisher 505 Games decided to make their own Payday-like with a different developer and released Crime Boss: Rockay City. Meanwhile, the remaining team at Starbreeze Studios and Overkill continued on to make Payday 3, released this year. And now we have another take on the genre coming with Den Of Wolves.
10 Chambers has the backing of publisher Level Infinite for GTFO, though they are not directly listed as publishers for any of their games.
Den Of Wolves will be released first on PC via Steam Early Access, with plans for a console release later. However, there’s no release window just yet.
