Payday 3 is still in development. The game uses the Unreal Engine

Payday 3, contrary to rumors, has not been abandoned by the developers. We got to know new information about the long-awaited production, including its engine.


We have known about the existence of the third installment of the Payday series for over four years . Many players worry that the production has stalled and has been abandoned. Although there was a lot of evidence, the developers calmed down the players.

A very interesting post from developers appeared on the brand’s Twitter . As it turns out, Payday 3 is in development and uses the Unreal Engine . We don’t know the release date yet, but in this case any injection of information is worth its weight in gold.

The information about such an early stage of the game’s development certainly disappointed many people. Importantly, the publisher’s original plans assumed that PD3 would be available in 2022 or 2023 , so perhaps the production of the title has just started in full swing.

It is worth remembering that the second part of the series is still receiving updates, which effectively consumes some of the resources of Overkill studio. An additional factor of delays was certainly financial problems with the game publisher – Starbreeze. The company may not have been able to finance the project earlier.

Although the “two” still has a large group of players with them, it is not possible to still develop the seven-year-old game on an outdated engine. After all, the new DLC will not replace a full-fledged successor.
