Starbreeze Studios was founded in 1998 in northern Sweden. In 2000 the company merged with O3 games and moved to south. The studio is now located in the university town of Uppsala, 60 km north of Stockholm and the office houses both development teams.
Starbreeze has a strong tradition of internal technology development. Its proprietary engine has appeared on most consoles since the Dreamcast and has ensured independence of the company through various platform transitions and many titles. So far Starbreeze Studio has had six games published and is currently developing a new game based on the Bourne franchise. The second project is a new installment of a classic EA franchise, the name of this project is yet to be disclosed.
- The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
- The Darkness (Xbox 360 & PS3)
- The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (Xbox & PC)
- Knights of the Temple (PC, GC, PS2, Xbox)
- Enclave (Xbox & PC)
- The Outforce (PC)
