Starbreeze Studios has at the same time subtly and overtly announced the initiation of Payday 3’s production. This means the studio is developing the third entry in the Payday heist series. The news was slapped onto the end of their financial results for the year. Unless you’re really into that kind of thing, you wouldn’t normally happen upon it.
Within the two paragraph explanation, however, Starbreeze happily says “with great satisfaction” that Payday 3 production is “at a full design stage.” As far as that subtle/overt stick is concerned though, Starbreeze goes crazy on the overt end. They mention, “that this project will enjoy as much time as we deem needed. It will be done when it’s done.” Furthermore they state that, “Updates in the near future might be [scarce] and far between. You simply don’t rush Payday 3.”
It’s fantastic to know that Payday 3 is in fact happening and will be given all the love and attention a middle child wishes they had. However, it is a tad disheartening to know that we won’t see many updates in the future. At the least we know Starbreeze takes the franchise seriously, since they also said, “This is our single most important brand today and the cornerstone of our business and we will treat it accordingly.”
