PAYDAY 3 Confirmed; PAYDAY 2 Microtransactions End

PAYDAY developer Starbreeze announces they are now also PAYDAY owner Starbreeze, following the completion of a deal that grants them rights to the series from 505 Games in exchange for a pile of Starbreeze stock. This includes details on how revenue sharing will play out for the series, and that also confirms plans for a third game in the heist series: "Furthermore, 505 Games will retain a 33% revenue share of Starbreeze's net revenues from future sales of PAYDAY 3 capped at 40 MUSD, and after Starbreeze has fully recouped its development and marketing costs." An accompanying post on Steam announces the news along with details on an update 100 for PAYDAY 2 coming this Thursday, revealing that this will end the game's unpopular microtransaction system. Here's an accompanying video and here's word:

"Now that it is more profitable to sell you a new game, we will try to look like good guys buy dropping micro-transitions."


I never though there would be a company more adept at lying (every pre release promise) and being bigger scum bags in the game industry than EA.


Kudos Overkill, you worthless muppets. The only game I vehemently speak out against whenever it is mentioned. A decent game trashed by a garbage manufacturer, and now they look to exploit to further.

Yeah, it may be a convenient excuse for them now (that their publisher overlords mandated the monetization), but it doesn't change the fact that they eagerly complied. They're not winning back any respect so easily.

I've lost all hope for anything good that can come out from this forsaken dev group, Payday 2 was the beginning of the end. Bloody loved it when it came out, lost all the love 3-4 DLCs later. They've butchered the whole game in the name of the greed.

Payday 3 will be no different, and they do need more money!!

Fuck'em!
