Payday 2 will launch this August globally at retail for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, developer Overkill Software announced today. Previously, the game was confirmed for a digital-only release on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and PC.
"We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill--there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out--so Payday 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network alone," game director David Goldfarb said in a statement.
The PC version of Payday 2 will remain a digital-exclusive and will be available through Steam.
Payday 2 includes a number of features not found in 2011's original Payday: The Heist, including a skill and progression system. In addition, the game features four different professions, each with its own unique abilities.
