Overkill says Payday 2 for Switch “very unlikely to see further updates”
Those who were expecting the Switch version to be updated will be disappointed to hear that Overkill is essentially done with the game. Explaining the decision to move on from what’s offered on Nintendo’s console, developer Overkill explained that “the transfer of the game over to the Switch-platform was not made in-house and would require significant further investments to happen.”
We’re very sad to announce that PAYDAY 2 for Nintendo Switch will be very unlikely to see further updates, despite what our initial ambitions were on the contrary. As per above, we’ve been forced to make many hard decisions along the road, and this is yet another. To put the Switch version separately into context, the transfer of the game over to the Switch-platform was not made in-house and would require significant further investments to happen. We are very aware that this was undesired news, but we’d rather be clear to set the expectations now.
Payday 2 originally launched for Switch back in February 2018.
