Payday 3 Is Still in Development, Will Use Unreal Engine

The cooperative shooter Payday 3 had been very quiet in the past, however, we finally got another sign of life at the start of this new week. When the official revelation can be expected is still not yet known though.


At the beginning of 2017, the people in charge of the financially troubled company Starbreeze announced that the work on Payday 3 was ongoing. To the distress of the fans, however, there has been no update on the cooperative shooter in the past few months, which caused some people to fear that the project might have fallen victim to the financial difficulties of Starbreeze.

Fortunately, however, this is not the case, as can be seen in a recent tweet on its official Twitter account.

On the one hand, the said tweet points out that Payday 3 is based on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. In addition, the developers of Starbreeze note that the cooperative shooter is currently in the design phase. This should once again underpin the information that some time will pass before the final release of the title.

Already last year it was pointed out that Payday 3 will release sometime between 2022 and 2023 for unspecified platforms. However, it is likely that in addition to the PC, the two next-generation consoles of Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 will be considered with an implementation.


It is also unclear when the first gameplay presentation can be expected.
