The snow is starting to fall outside the windows of the OVERKILL office and we bring a little Holiday Update to warm our heisters. Put on some festive and cozy Christmas blazers to get into the mood for eggnog and thermite. If you’re among those who need to work during the holidays, then the "Repairman" might be the outfit for you, good for manual labor and hard to tackle tasks. Hoxton is bringing his own flavor of holiday cheer to the team. Check out Hoxton Breakout or Breakin' Feds during the holidays to celebrate in OVERKILL style. Hoxton also has something special that he wants to share with you all - you can check it out here: One DC Winter Night - A christmas Tale. One of the things you might notice in the heists mentioned above is a new sound. That’s right - not one, not two, but three new music tracks to blast into the winter nights. If you like the new music track on Breakin' Feds you can even select it or any other stealth track on any stealth heist you want. Variety really is the spice of the heister life.

Last month, Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark announced that work would resume on Payday 2, following a difficult 12 months for the studio, despite development on the game having formally ended last December. As a result of that decision, explained Nermark, Payday 2 fans could expect"both paid and free" updates in the future. The first of those updates, titled Silk Road, is officially described as a "free core game update". However, the bulk of the components it ushers in are, in fact, paid DLC.

Check out EDIT: The website has now been updated with more info. Let's do this, OVERKILL_Almir OVERKILL - a Starbreeze Studio. Embattled Starbreeze resurrecting Payday 2, despite officially ending development last yearOct 25, 2019 - EurogamerBeleaguered Swedish studio Starbreeze has announced that it will be restarting development on its popular multiplayer heist game Payday 2, despite shutting down work on the game last December to focus on other projects. It will also be creating new paid DLC, contrary to its previous announcement that all future updates would be free. All of this comes via a candid post by Starbreeze CEO Mikael Nermark, who explained that the decision to resurrect Payday 2 was made "having reconsidered future". The studio has been engaged in a well-documented fight for survival over the 12 months, following the disastrous launch of Overkill's The Walking Dead - a failure that placed Starbreeze in dire financial straits and lead to the acrimonious exit of the studio's former boss Bo Andersson, as detailed in Eurogamer's lengthy report The fall of Starbreeze. Read more Winds of ChangeOct 25, 2019 - Community AnnouncementsHeisters, I’m posting this today to communicate a few of the changes coming to PAYDAY 2. Most of you don’t know me, and that’s how it should be. The day to day interactions you have with our OVERKILL devs, community managers and moderator crew are by far more interesting, I’m sure. Our team, together with you, provide a forum where firsthand input can be discussed, and these are dialogues that directly affect our current and future development. I took over the helm in December of last year (for the second time). I see myself primarily as the custodian, facilitator of making great games. If you look at a company as a well-oiled machine; every cog in the engine is more important than I. I’m just here to make sure everything’s clean, oiled, and running smoothly. My job is to create an environment where the team can focus on what’s important, the game(s). As many of you may or may not know, our company has gone through something of a purgatory fire in the past year. Because of this, we’re announcing a few PAYDAY 2 changes today. I’ll summarize them here in a TL;DR right here at the top, and then dive into the details: Last year PAYDAY 2 development was stopped. Having reconsidered our future, I’ve asked the OVERKILL crew to resume production on PAYDAY 2. The game will have more updates going forward, both paid and free. The team is working hard on the first new update, I will let the team present it soon™, but you can get a sneak peek here. We’re re-introducing the DLC smörgåsbord again. An à la carte option of previous legacy content DLCs will be made available again starting today! As a part of our journey into the future, we’ll be changing the PAYDAY 2: Ultimate Edition to PAYDAY 2: Legacy Collection starting later today. We want to be able to move forward together with all of you in our community, and to be able to do this we need to retire the promise of free future content based on old assumptions (more below). New curated bundles on existing content will be created to give great offers to new and returning players. Preface In the beginning of this wall of text, I mentioned the purgatory fire that we’ve been through in the past months, and challenges we’re still facing. To keep it relevant and not too lengthy, I’ll condense some of the background to this here, most of the details can be found on our website if you’d like to learn more. Late 2018 Starbreeze found itself in an acute liquidity shortfall (fancy words for: “we were urgently really out of cash”). In December of 2018, Starbreeze entered into “reconstruction”, a procedure similar to the US version of Chapter 11. On December 3rd, we only had projected cash reserves to run the company until mid-January 2019. This was how serious the situation had become. Since then we’ve been able, through extremely hard work and commitment by all of our employees, been able to stay afloat, clean up our business and start thinking about our future and the future of PAYDAY. We’re not entirely there yet, b...Starbreeze says it will release Payday 3 in 2022-2023Oct 12, 2019 - EurogamerEmbattled Swedish video game company Starbreeze has said it will release Payday 3 in 2022-2023. The claim comes as the company fights for survival amid a bruising reconstruction that has seen staff leave and subsidiaries sold off. Starbreeze has been under threat ever since the disastrous launch of Overkill's The Walking Dead on Steam. The game flopped, causing severe financial issues and the acrimonious exit of boss Bo Andersson. Check out our feature, The fall of Starbreeze for more.
