It's almost time for a lucrative payday. If you can survive, of course. That's key.
Today, publisher 505 Games and developer Overkill Software have announced that Payday 2 will be released in August. We knew that, though; the interesting part of the press release is that this sequel won't be limited to the digital space.
That's right, while the original Payday: The Heist was only available as a digital download, the new effort can be purchased digitally or in physical format. It will be released globally at retail brick-and-mortar stores for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Said Payday 2 game director David Goldfarb:
"We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill – there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out – so PAYDAY 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live® and PlayStation®Network alone."
505 Games Head of Global Brand Tim Woodley added that they're "expecting great things" from the sequel. If you want to learn more about the game in question, check out our recent preview . It could be a ton of fun, especially if you've got some willing buddies. Take the high-risk job and hope it pays off…'cuz if not, things could be over really fast.
