Payday 2: Crimewave Edition coming to PS4 and Xbox One

Will include "enhanced features" and bonus content

Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is headed to PS4 and Xbox One, developer Overkill Software and publisher 505 Games announced Thursday.

[E3 2014: All the news | All the Nintendo news | All the Sony news | All the Microsoft news | All the new Xbox One/PS4 games | All the videos and trailers]The Crimewave Edition will include "enhanced features and a stash of new bonus content, giving fans the ultimate PAYDAY experience". No release date was specified.


The co-op heist shooter released on Steam, PS3, and Xbox 360 in August 2013. It was followed with a stream of free and paid DLC, adding new weapons, gear, and missions to the game.

Starbreeze Software, which owns Overkill, cited successful sales of Payday 2 as a turnaround point for the company.

"Thanks to our new business model, reorganization and a focus on our own brands, we have - in only two quarters - generated a profit before tax of SEK 104 million," CEO Bo Andersson Klint said. "I would like to think that is what they call a turnaround."

In our original Payday 2 review we said: "With friends, it's one of the most intense, thrilling co-op multiplayer games we've played.

"The unpredictability of the randomisation can make even heists you've played a dozen times feel fresh, throwing new surprises at you. Making it past seemingly impossible odds with a fat bag of money slung over your shoulder is hugely rewarding."
