Overkill Halts Updates for Payday 2 for Last Gen Consoles

Overkill Halts Updates for Payday 2 for Last Gen Consoles
Overkill Software is no longer supporting Payday 2 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. They announced it on Steam back when the Crimewave Edition, and this has come to the forefront when they responded to an angry fan on twitter

This is what they have to say about it, straight from the horse’s mouth: (From the Steam Page)
“Q: Will you continue to support PAYDAY 2 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3?

A: In connection with this, we have decided to retire the PAYDAY 2 update development on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. We wish we could provide more updates. For a long time, we’ve been looking at how we could add more updates from a technical standpoint. Sadly, we now understand that it’s impossible to continue doing so.

We are confident that we have done everything we could cramming as much content we possibly could on both of the platforms. There are several technical reason as to why. For one, please understand that from a technical perspective, some of these consoles are almost a decade old. While trying to understand why we couldn’t develop more content, we learnt that they don’t have the fire power or memory to deal with 50 additional content updates that we have been developing for PAYDAY 2 after its release.

For those of you who play Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and have been looking forward to new updates, you’ll be pissed when you hear this. We hate this too, because there’s nothing we can do about it.”

So, angry at the game not being updated? Or have you already moved on to next gen or PC? Do drop a comment below and let us know! For more, stay tuned to Gaming Central
