Starbreeze has just announced a new publishing deal with Lion Game Lion, a studio that has previously generated content for Payday 2, which will see the studio's new game receive backing to the tune of $8 million USD. The new game, Raid: World War II, is described as an "action-packed, four player co-op shooter game that lets players team up as the Raid crew and venture through the epic events of World War II."

"We think the world is ready for an amazing co-op game set during an era of heroes and villains, horror and bravery," said Bo Andersson Klint, CEO of Starbreeze Studios. Then company COO Mikael Nermark added: "It's great to see Lion Game Lion succeed so well in our Payday 2 collaboration. By delivering great gameplay, they have not only gained our trust, but also the trust of players. Now it's time for them to bat in the big leagues with Raid: World War II."

"The dream for any developer is to make your own game with a partner who cares about your future. With Starbreeze as our wingman, we get the opportunity to show the world what we can create with our own brand. With Raid: World War II, we're taking everything we've learned to create an experience to die for in a World War II setting," declared Lion Game Lion president Nikica Petrusic.

There's no dates and platforms mentioned as part of the announcement, and the game is still only in its initial production phase. There's no screens as yet, but the imagery accompanying the press release do offer up an idea regarding tone.
