Payday sequel makes it onto Xbox

Four-player co-op heist game set for release on consoles and PC

Stockholm studio Overkill has revealed that Payday 2 will be the first game in the series to be released on Xbox.


While the game's cult predecessor, Payday: The Heist, was a PS3 console exclusive (published by Sony Online Entertainment, while the PC version was published by Microsoft), Overkill has since been acquired by fellow Sweden based studio Starbreeze, giving the firm more options.

505 Games, now stepping in as publisher, is to release Payday 2 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC via Steam. Full release is due some time in the summer.
