Payday 2 pledged to continue support for another 2 years

Payday 2 developer #Overkill has pledged to continue support for its popular heist shooter into 2017. The studio #confirmed it had reached a deal with publisher 505 Games that will allow it to work on two more years’ worth of #content.

Payday 2’s current model, which mixes free updates, optional paid DLCs and new campaigns, is expected to continue over the next 48 months.

“At OVERKILL, we are still celebrating. If you’ve been trying to steal cars in the Car Shop Heist or have been avenging Hoxton all day, this might be news for you,” producer Almir Listo explained in a new blog post.

“Yes! We are very excited about this. We love working on PAYDAY 2 and look forward taking care of our game for two more years, making new free updates, paid DLC’s and awesome campaigns together with the community. This is possible because we signed a new deal together with our publishing partner 505 games. Thanks to them, we can continue focusing on making PAYDAY 2 better and better.”

This new statement of support comes after the news that “Payday 2 will be available on SteamOS and Linux in Fall 2015″ as stated on the games Steam page.

Overkill has a roadmap of paid-for and free content updates laid out for a while to come and, with a userbase now above nine million, it makes sense for the developer to keep its players rooted in one place.

“We want to build a long-term relationship with the community. Five years ago we barely existed. We’ve always respected them and their devotion to the Payday universe.”

Overkill is also juggling production on two other major projects: a new The Walking Dead shooter and a mysterious sci-fi project due out in 2016 named Storm. So stay tuned for more news.
