Fans of the FPS robbery game PAYDAY: The Heist were given a nice surprise, as 505 Games announced that the game’s sequel will no longer be a download exclusive game. The masked men of PAYDAY 2 will be snatching up real estate at a store near you come August.
Here’s what 505 had to say:
Game Director on PAYDAY 2 David Goldfarb said, “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.”
“It’s an incredible position to be in, having a game that just keeps growing and getting better all the time,” added Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley. “We wanted to do everything we could to make a game that truly fits the vision of the team at Overkill but most importantly delivers an exciting, rewarding experience for the player – be they a long-time fan or new to the series. We’re expecting great things from PAYDAY 2 and are really looking forward to working with our retail partners all over the world to make it the huge success it deserves to be.”
This is great news for gamers on the whole, as many people without internet hookups for their console of choice were left unable to play the chaotic bank robbery sim. With PAYDAY 2 hitting shelves at your local retailer, there will be no excuse for players to sit out of the high octane action. Check out the teaser trailer and gallery below for a small preview of the madness.
