505 Games has revealed that PayDay 2 will become a full retail title on Xbox 360 and PS3. The game had originally been announced in February as a digitally distributed title but it appears the game has become too big for that due to the inclusion of various gameplay elements.
However the PC version will remain as a download via Steam.
I quite liked the premise of the original PayDay: The Heist which gave you an opportunity to pull off robberies in a co-op fashion. Of course I wouldn’t condone those kind of actions in real life but it was an interesting scenario to put into the games world. The only other big title I can think of that came close to simulating a bank robbery well was GTA IV.
PayDay 2 is being developed by series creators Overkill Software who released the original PayDay: The Heist in 2011 as a digital title. The game itself is set to be released in August this year.
