Payday 2 To Get 2 More Years Of DLC Following Starbreeze “Turnaround”

It looks like Payday 2 paid off for Overkill Software owner Starbreeze, who reported that for the first time in 15 years, it has made a “turnaround” in profits.

This is good news for Payday 2 fans, because the CEO of Starbreeze, Bo Andersson-Klint, has announced that a new contract with publisher 505 Games will extend the cooperative multiplayer heist game saying that “the new improved contract, worth 6 million U.S. dollars, gives us the security to, for the next 20 months, focus on developing and refining Payday 2 so that it becomes the best co-operative gaming experience available on the market, with many more add-on packages and other exciting events planned”.

Are you excited that Payday 2 will be kept alive for 2 more years? Let us know in the comments section below!

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Now would be a great time to start supporting the console version but unfortunately I doubt they will. If there’s a payday 3 I won’t be buying it on console that’s for sure.

      Yeah hate that about overkill :/ Atleast my copy was free with PS+ plan on getting the PC version soon

      • KillzoneVII

        I paid the full $60 to get the collectors edition on my 360 the day it came out. Played it for about 2 weeks and haven’t played it since. It’s a great game but there’s too many glitches that haven’t been patched and no DLC to keep me coming back.

          Yeah the FPS drops like hell on the PS3 version and the aim acceleration is crap aswell :/

          • KillzoneVII

            Forgot about the aim acceleration, that was one of my biggest issues with the game.

            • dieger

              And it carried over in the sequel :/ atleast we can kinda turn now…a little

  • dieger

    damn guess this game really was successful

  • M1ke Daddy

    Bought it too on Console and they’ll never get another dime out of me again, Horrible support on PS3 and zero support on 360.

  • joezafein

    please put DLC on console! how can you not understand that having a successful console version would only make the PC version more popular!
