Payday: The Heist / Left 4 Dead Mash Up Announced

Valve and Overkill are working on a ‘blend’ of Payday: The Heist and Left 4 Dead.


Ulf Andersson, Game Director at OVERKILL, has released the following statement:

As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors. We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.

We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.

Quite what format this ‘cool blend’ will take shape is unclear. DLC for Payday with zombie bank robbers? A brand new game?

  1. Not more zombies >.>

  2. I’d imagine it will be Payday running on the Source engine, or something. Payday was a cool idea, it just didn’t play or feel well in my opinion. If they could get it to play like Left 4 Dead, that would be brilliant.

    • Yeah i was thinking the same thing.

      I’m suprised Sony Online didnt buy em. Actualy i’m not suprised Sony being Sony. (Dark Souls)

      • They only released one game, and it didn’t exactly set the world on fire. I’d like to think they’d have a bit more sense in terms of buying studios than that.

        As for the Souls series, Sony does own the Demon’s Souls IP. Hence why when From Software wanted to bring it to 360 too, they had to change the name to Dark Souls. Again, Sony was never going to outright buy From Software.

      • Yes i understand that they cant buy out fromsoftware but to have the director of sony call demons souls shit shows you how much they know. Payday was published buy sony online and being a small company i thought they would have snaped it up given the potential the game had. Looks like vavle has the right idea.

      • Payday was nothing exciting, why would they be bought by a big publisher.

  3. Robbing the Brain-Bank!

  4. Nice, considering all the comparisons that were being made between the 2 games. Maybe now we will see a L4D on ps3?

  5. i hope this is for the ps3 aswell, i love zombie games and missed out on the L4D series because i dont have an xbox

  6. This sounds pretty awesome! Payday was so close to being amazing Valve will surely make sure it passes that mark.
