505 Games and Overkill Software (from Starbreeze Studio) announced a few new details on the upcoming sequel “Payday 2”. Here are the announcements.
The two companies confirmed with us that the upcoming title “PAYDAY 2”, which is the sequel to the 2011 hit “PAYDAY: The Heist”, will no longer be a digital download only title, the game will now be released at retail-outlets for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. Game Director on PAYDAY 2 David Goldfarb said, “We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill – there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out – so PAYDAY 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live® and PlayStation®Network alone.”
“It’s an incredible position to be in, having a game that just keeps growing and getting better all the time,” added Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley. “We wanted to do everything we could to make a game that truly fits the vision of the team at Overkill but most importantly delivers an exciting, rewarding experience for the player – be they a long-time fan or new to the series. We’re expecting great things from PAYDAY 2 and are really looking forward to working with our retail partners all over the world to make it the huge success it deserves to be.”
PAYDAY 2 will release for consoles and PC, via Steam, in August 2013.
