Payday: The Heist Suffers Last-Minute Delay

by Joe Juba on Oct 04, 2011 at 10:19 AM

The fast-paced, bank-robbing shooter Payday was supposed to come out on PSN today. Instead, Sony and developer Overkill have delayed the game until later in the month.

The team at Overkill apparently needs a little more time to ensure "overall game quality," and since the game isn't coming out today, SOE is still taking pre-orders. Since it's a team-based multiplayer game, it's going to be important that plenty of people are online when the game finally launches.

A post on the PlayStation Blog about the delay states: "Your continued loyalty and patience with the game’s further development is very much appreciated, we truly believe your first heist will be worth the wait. SOE recognizes the demand for quality from PlayStation players and looks to meet this head on with the upcoming launch of Payday: The Heist."

If you're looking for something else to download today instead, don't forget about that Portal 2 DLC.
