Payday 2 is as good as dead on Nintendo Switch
PayDay 2 was one of those Switch ports you never expected to see, in our review we said: “while portable Payday sounded amazing, the game’s developers have a murky history with console ports”.
Sadly we were right.
The developers of Payday 2 have announced that the Switch version of the game is ‘unlikely to see further updates’. While the game will receive updates and DLC for other versions, Nintendo fans aren’t so lucky.
In a blog post they’ve said;
“We’re very sad to announce that PAYDAY 2 for Nintendo Switch will be very unlikely to see further updates, despite what our initial ambitions were on the contrary. As per above, we’ve been forced to make many hard decisions along the road, and this is yet another. To put the Switch version separately into context, the transfer of the game over to the Switch-platform was not made in-house and would require significant further investments to happen. We are very aware that this was undesired news, but we’d rather be clear to set the expectations now.”
It looks like the game didn’t sell enough to warrant any future investment. The fact it was one of the most expensive Switch games probably didn’t help.
