It has been almost a year to the day since we last heard anything about the progress of Payday 3, but thanks to the official Payday 2 Twitter account we finally have some good news.
Unfortunately, the only substantial news we can take from this Tweet, other than the fact that Payday 3 is still in development, is that Payday 3 will be built on Unreal Engine, which is great news. This ensures that the developers can take full advantage of Unreal Engine and truly bring Payday into the next generation.
It has been a long and bumpy road since Starbreeze Studios acquired the series back in 2016 and quickly announced that Payday 3 was in the works. A number of financial issues, along with the flop of Overkill’s The Walking Dead caused a significant restructuring of the company. The good news is that there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel with this announcement, however, a 2022/2023 release for Payday 3 still looks inevitable.
