We’ve been quiet over the last few days, and for that we apologize. It’s not easy to communicate when we have not been able to offer any updates on the one big topic that’s on everyone’s mind right now: When are the patches coming to PAYDAY 3? Despite our silence, we want to assure you all that the team is still working on our main priority, which is to get the patch we promised out to you, and to make sure our patching process allows us to continue publishing them at a steady cadence in the future.
We know it sucks to keep hearing the same thing, so allow us to lift the curtains a little and give you some insight on what the team is working on right now:
- The first patch has been sent off and is currently going through a testing and certification process. We have made a commitment to our players to keep parity between all platforms, so this is an important part of that process.
- The reason it has taken so long to get this first patch ready is very long and complicated, but the short version is that we discovered critical errors with our update pipeline shortly after the game released. There was a significant risk to player progression being wiped if we didn’t address this and ensured a solid test environment.
- We see a lot of your feedback about the progression system. Our designers are looking at how the system can be adapted to balance both the challenge system as well as offering infamy points for each heist, and we’ll come back with more information on what this looks like soon.
- Once we can consistently deliver patches, the team will also deliver on our plans for more content for the game. Expect to see free content updates for the game before the end of the year, we’ll share more information on what these will be when we get there.
Again, we apologize for our silence. We see your frustration and anger, and we can assure you this is not a situation we want to be in. The team is working hard on a game that will be supported for years to come and making PAYDAY 3 the new criminal dawn!
