PayDay 3 has been confirmed by Starbreeze Studios, which had also managed to secure the full rights to the franchise by buying it for around $30 million from 505 Games. No details have been revealed about the third installment in the popular first-person online co-op shooter series, but the official announcement will most likely be made at this year’s E3. The game will probably be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 and continue the series’ tradition when it comes to gameplay.
Another reason to rejoice for the fans of PayDay 2 is that the black market will be made free for everyone, which means all future safes will be openable at no charge – no drills needed. The developers are also giving away community grenades (everyone in the community can use explosives) and the skills tree, which is now through beta and is coming live this Thursday with the update 100. It doesn’t end there, as Starbreeze and its subsidiary OVERKILL are promising to continue supporting and adding new content to PayDay 2 for at least the next 18 months.
