Payday 2 to get August retail release


505 Games and Overkill Software have announced that the upcoming title Payday 2, the sequel to the 2011 title Payday: The Heist, will no longer be limited to digital download and will now additionally be released globally at retail for PS3 and Xbox 360/

Game Director on Payday 2 David Goldfarb said, "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."

"It's an incredible position to be in, having a game that just keeps growing and getting better all the time," added Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley. "We wanted to do everything we could to make a game that truly fits the vision of the team at Overkill but most importantly delivers an exciting, rewarding experience for the player - be they a long-time fan or new to the series. We're expecting great things from Payday 2 and are really looking forward to working with our retail partners all over the world to make it the huge success it deserves to be."

Payday 2 will release for consoles and PC, via Steam, in August 2013.

Multiplat AND on disc? Nice one. I was worries that locking the first to SOE would hamstring it's popularity a little

The first is a decent game. It's tough, but great if you can get a couple of decent co-op partners.

I hated the first one. Not because it was bad or anything but there's something about me that means no matter how hard I try I just cannot get used to playing games with the keyboard and mouse. If any FPS doesn't fully take the Xbox windows pad then I can't even contemplate it.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
