"We're making some radical changes to how the matchmaking works in Payday 2 in order to ensure you, in a simple way, can join games going forward. We're working on these changes right now and we hope to add them as soon as possible, no later than the end of the year."
Posting on Reddit, Almir further addressed the issues and Overkill's plans, revealing the solution was a "full remake" of matchmaking.
"We are currently working on a radical change - a full remake of the matchmaking system which will simplify the way you join games and improve the matchmaking," he explained.
"This is a solution that is built from the ground up, as the previous matchmaking system we have for PS4 and PC doesn't work well with [Xbox One]."
He continued: "Right now this is our number one priority. Our ambition is to go live with the new matchmaking system and additional fixes within the coming weeks, and no later than the end of the year. Does that mean that we want to release it on 31st of December? Absolutely not, we want to get it done ASAP."
In GameSpot's Payday 2 review the game earned a 7/10.
"The systems and mechanics all have small flaws and limitations," said review Chris Watters, "but they come together to set the stage for exciting heists that you'll want to pull again and again.
"As long as you can find some felons to fight alongside, Payday 2 is an addictive and challenging criminal pursuit."
Film studio Lionsgate has announced a partnership with Payday publisher Starbreeze for a virtual reality game based on the Keanu Reeves movie John Wick.
