More On: Payday 2
Payday 2 used to be nothing but a cute little downloadable game, but now 505 Games has revealed that it has achieved a level that can no longer be covered by simply downloading a file.  You're going to need a car, or at least a credit card because Payday 2 has escaped into the physical world as a full retail disc release.  You can still downloaded if you want to, but now, even if you live in a shack surrounded for miles on all sides by landmines and the last radio signal made it to you in 1965, you're not locked out of that sweet Payday 2 action.  

Payday 2 will be available on Steam, and on disc for the Xbox 360 and PS3 in August.  Find out more on Facebook, Twitter, and  For more details on today's news, follow the jump.



 WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. - May 14, 2013 - Global video game publisher 505 Games and leading independent developer Overkill Software, a Starbreeze Studio, are pleased to announce that the upcoming title PAYDAY 2, sequel to the 2011 hit PAYDAY: The Heist, will no longer be limited to digital download and will now additionally be released globally at retail for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

Game Director on PAYDAY 2 David Goldfarb said, "We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill - there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out - so PAYDAY 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live® and PlayStation®Network alone."

"It's an incredible position to be in, having a game that just keeps growing and getting better all the time," added Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley. "We wanted to do everything we could to make a game that truly fits the vision of the team at Overkill but most importantly delivers an exciting, rewarding experience for the player - be they a long-time fan or new to the series.  We're expecting great things from PAYDAY 2 and are really looking forward to working with our retail partners all over the world to make it the huge success it deserves to be."

PAYDAY 2 will release for consoles and PC, via Steam, in August 2013.
