[Update #2]: Payday 3 has now arrived alongside a surprising amount of server problems.

[Update]: It took a while for us to get here, but Payday 3 will be launching in 2023 for PC and consoles!

There have been rumors circling around for quite a while now that Payday 3 is in development. This has been going on for so long that I went through the whole process of getting excited about the incoming announcement, leaving disappointed about no actual information being released, and then eventually even forgetting about the entire thing.

So with all of that in mind, I think you can imagine my surprise now that the developers have officially confirmed Payday 3 is in development! And yes, this time around the announcement is 100% genuine!

The bad news is that there is basically no information available on Payday 3, other than the fact that it will be using the Unreal Engine. This is because Payday 3 is currently in the design phase, so chances are not even the developers know what exactly it'll bring to the table. Still, even if it ends up being "Payday 2 but more of it", I think I'll be perfectly happy with that as there's very few games out there that let you sneak around with multiple friends by your side.

Once more information become available I'll make sure to let you know, but until then all we can do is sit and wait.
