PAYDAY 2 comes to you in June for next gen consoles this year!

CONSOLE HEISTERS!

We're excited to announce PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, coming out in June 2015!

PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in June!
For us, this is the ultimate heisting experience on the new generation consoles, featuring more than a year of post-release content at release, such as Old Hoxton, Clover, Dragan, the Big Bank Heist, the Diamond Heist and much more. It also features new technical updates like improved framerate, 1080P resolution and improved texture quality.

Will you continue to support PAYDAY 2 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3?
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 ♥♥♥♥♥♥ when you hear this. We hate this too, because there’s nothing we can do about it.

So what now?
For those of you who are ready to make the jump to the new generation of consoles, we offer anyone who pre-orders a digital version of PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition on Xbox Live or PlayStation Network a 25% discount for the duration of the pre-order period. By pre-ordering the game, you also receive the Hard Time Loot Bag to get you started heisting.

What will it contain?
Updates and DLCs worth over $80 in recommended retail value, including the The Big Bank DLC, the first female heister Clover as well as the recently released The Bomb DLCs. In total:
Armored Transport
Gage Weapon Pack #1
Gage Weapon Pack #2
Gage Mod Courier Pack
Gage Sniper Pack
The Big Bank Heist
Gage Shotgun Pack
Gage Assault Pack
Hotline Miami
Gage Historical Pack
The Diamond Heist
Clover Character Pack
The Bomb Heists
Dragan Character Pack
The Death Wish Update
The Election Day Heist
The Shadow Raid Heist
John Wick Character Pack
The Hoxton Breakout Heist
Old Hoxton Character Pack
The Infamy Update
The Diamond Store Heist
The White Xmas Heist
The PAYDAY 2 Soundtrack to play in game.

The pre-order bonus “Hard Time Loot Bag” contains a number of unique digital items including:
Red dot weapon sight modification available for use on all rifle weapons
Exclusive Skull mask
PlayStation 4 or Xbox One exclusive mask
Unique mask pattern titled “I LOVE OVERKILL”
Unique color pattern, only available with this unlock
Bundle of in-game cash
Can we transfer save files?
No, you won’t be able to transfer a save file from Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 to Xbox One or PlayStation 4 respectively.

Will you support PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition with post launch updates?
Our ambition is to support both platforms as long as technically possible.

Will it support split-screen co-op?
No, it won’t.

When is it released?
Out now!

That's it guys, thanks for reading.

Good. While I don't own either platform, I'm sure the console players will be happy.

Oh the lies they fed the console players for 18 months how they'll get their update. There is a high chance this will happen with PS4 and XB1. Just to lure people to buy more.

The smell of burning customers. Mmm! Feels good!

Hopefully PS3/X360 owners get a discount for buying the game again for the newer consoles, but poor poor Overkill needs to pay them bills. At least the pre-order discount % is nice.

It probably is, similar to how No Mercy was as well for PD:TH. Don't worry, you're not missing out on much, to be honest.

well at lest i don't need to worry about those trophies
GeneralWiseman Mar 3, 2015 @ 11:47am

I'm♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥off that we didn't find out that they "did everything they could" until some freakin FAQ months after last gen console users were asking for any news. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s.

well on the "semi'' bright-side of things...at least we are up to date with the PC...up until the butcher bomb heist...and on next gen systems...in June

keyword was "semi"

Glad I got Payday 2 for free on PS3 instead of paying for it. I'd be♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥if I paid for it. Thank you PS+

I swear, I must've been one of the people around here who was the most angry with Overkill over the last gen versions of the game and their lack of support, but one of the only ones who doesn't feel burned by the dropped support to focus on Crimewave. Maybe it's because I have a Xbox One and can actually buy the new one, or maybe it's just because I had assumed the one update was all we were getting and figured they dropped support the moment it was out.

Granted, I think they gave up too early on the last gen versions, and I know they could've gotten more out of those systems, but I guess this just didn't feel like a surprise to me.

Wonderful! I'm a big fan of consoles and will be very glad to have seen those same supplements that are on the PC, I wish you luck and success in improving the parts for consoles).

I do feel for the Console users as I have some friends who play on their but the way Overkill & 505 Games is going about this is completely wrong.

Firstly, there should be a way to transfer old data to new such as uploading it online like Minecraft or GTA V ready to download as a one time transfer.

Secondly, there should be a 50% discount (for the base game & dlc release on old gen) on the market if the players has owned payday 2 on the old gen since they already paid for the game & or dlc. I believe they shouldn't have to pay for the game or dlc twice.

Lastly, DLC should carry over for free if they already owned it like the Pre Order bonus.

This will at least ensure a turning point with console users & the company relationship since it hasn't been the greatest. Does anyone agree or do yuo have you own suggest/improvements?
