Starbreeze Confirms Payday 2 Support for Two More Years
Overkill has announced it will be supporting Payday 2 for two more years, adding even more quality content to this great heist-fest. This means we should expect even more content atop the good stuff Overkill has been giving us. IGN reports that Payday producer Almir Listo of Overkill said that the company will be supporting Payday 2 for two more years, which will give players new content to look forward to. This two year period will be a collaboration between Digital Bros. and Starbreeze will start on April 1, 2015.
Starbreeze exec Michael Hjorth is very optimistic about the way that the series is going:
We've said that we'll never stop making Payday and the board is extremely happy to see where the franchise is today. The strategic partnership with 505 Games continues to strengthen us and the Payday investment alone doubles down on our previous spend. We will yet again see the Payday franchise being expanded with more heists, weapons, characters and even new game modes such as driving cars.
He went on to say that Payday won't be going anywhere as it is, "building a solid financial foundation for the company." It seems that Starbreeze is doing pretty well with Overkill under its belt. It has managed to set right a 15-year-loss within just six months after acquiring the talented, Sweden-based studio.
We will just have to wait and see what Payday 2 will bring us in the next two years. Hopefully this includes more epic, indie crossovers.
