Payday 2 Set to become a FULL Retail Release

Payday2, the follow-up to Payday: The Heist (originally published by SEO) will be a full retail release and not just limited to being a digital donwload…

Game Director, David Goldfab says, ” We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill – there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out – so PAYDAY 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live® and PlayStation®Network alone.”

Clearly they think the game is good enough to reach a wider audience. Whilst many of us now follow the PSN and Xbox weekly digital updates,  many consumers still buy physical product, and only use online for game connectivity. We saw a preview of the game, and whilst we will reserve judgement till it’s out, it’s clear that the game deserves to be seen by a wide audience, and that many will like it’s ‘cop and robbers’ gameplay.

The game is still due out in August, via Steam for PCs and online and through stores for PS3 and Xbox. No news on whether there will be a Vita version (that would be a great idea if anyone from 505 games are reading this….), or any for other soon to be released platforms…
