If you were looking forward to robbing some banks with your bros anytime soon, think again.
Sony Online has just delayed Payday: The Heist
This delay is a move to ensure players and fans of our promise and vision to produce high-caliber games that deliver the best quality game experience. Players who pre-ordered PAYDAY: The Heist will receive the game at launch, and those who purchased the four other PSN titles as part of the PlayStation®Network PLAY program will also be awarded PAYDAY: The Heist when it launches later this month, according to the terms of that program.
For those unfamiliar with Payday (the game, not the candy bar) here’s the rundown from SoE.
PAYDAY: The Heist is a squad-based, first-person shooter that allows players to take on the role of a hardened career criminal and engage in a number of high-risk heists. Players will rob banks, steal from drug dealers, pocket priceless diamonds, take hostages and hijack cars in a never-ending pursuit for criminal glory. To be successful in any true heist scenario, teamwork is essential to provide crew members with a sense of security and protection, and ultimately take home the loot.
Rob banks, shoot cops, good times. For those still wanting more, SoE has also just released this trailer:
As for when it’s been delayed until? All Sony is saying is, “Later this month.”
