I put in a couple hundred hours into payday 2 with a few friends on PC before the safe drops and drills/keys were implemented, and I slowly became frustrated with their game engine.
The free to play aspects being added into a game I purchased and hitting multiple infamy levels pointlessly just killed all desire to continue. I'll keep my ear to the ground since few heist style games exist, but I'm not holding my breath considering their track record.
Starbreeze Studios has apparently managed to raise a whopping $30 million by selling shares for the company; this money will go towards speeding up the development of Payday 3, the sequel to their perennially popular co-op heist game.
Some of the $30 million will apparently also be going towards marketing Overkill’s The Walking Dead, the action game based on the popular multimedia zombie franchise that is set to launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in Fall 2018.
