Following a deal with 505 Games, Overkill has pledged to continue to support Payday 2 for 24 months
Today, Payday 2 developer Overkill Software has revealed that support on the heist-based shooter will continue well into 2017. The news comes soon after the studio confirmed that it had reached a deal with publisher 505 Games, that’ll allow it to work on two more years’ worth of content including free updates and optional paid DLC.
For a while now, Payday 2 has received many updates to its PC version coming in the form of both free content updates and paid DLC which gives players more weapons, masks, materials, and more, and with this new cash injection, that’s going to continue until 2017, a whole 24 months.
“We’ve seen many of your comments already. At Overkill, we are still celebrating,” producer Almir Listo explained in a new blog post. “We are very excited about this.”
“On behalf of the rest of the crew, thank you everyone for your support through the years! We wouldn’t be where we are without you guys! We will honor your support by continue supporting Payday 2 for two more years. Alright! We have a lot in store for the rest of the year and have no time to rest.”
This new statement of support also comes before the game’s PlayStation 4 and Xbox One rerelease, which is set to land in June and will include all DLC releases to date, and will likely continue to receive updates and DLC in the coming months as Overkill has a roadmap of paid-for and free content laid out for a while.
As for those hoping or Payday 3, that’s something that isn’t even on the cards just yet, with Overkill previously saying that it would “bite us back in the end.” In other news Overkill is also juggling production on two major projects such as Overkill’s The Walking Dead, and a mysterious sci-fi project due out in 2016, currently titled Storm.
