The CEO of Starbreeze commented about Payday 3 during the company’s latest financial report.
The latest installment of the PAYDAY franchise is in development and it’ll be a while until it’s done. As long a necessary according Starbreeze CEO, Bo Andersson Klint:
It is with great satisfaction that we also can announce that PAYDAY 3 production is officially initiated and at a full design stage. I’d like to especially clarify, that this project will enjoy as much time as we deem needed. It will be done when it’s done. This is our single most important brand today and the cornerstone of our business and we will treat it accordingly.
This also means we won’t be hearing much about this game in the near future:
Updates in the near future might be scarce and far between. You simply don’t rush PAYDAY 3.
It’ll be a long wait for the next Payday, but the continuous support of PAYDAY 2 and the upcoming mobile game, PAYDAY: Crime War, may be enough to keep the fans distracted for a while.
PAYDAY: Crime War is scheduled for release during this year. It was commented as a side note of the report that their recently opened branch, Starbreeze Barcelona, is going to focus its efforts on this game:
The project has already accelerated considerably and is now fully playable in multiplayer with the games backend in place. The following months will be dedicated to building more content and polishing the gameplay format to maximize the fun of the final product.
While there’s no further details on PAYDAY 3, much less an estimated release date, we will be getting more updates on PAYDAY: Crime War in the upcoming months.
